One of the greatest American novels of this or any time * Guardian
A book of remarkable beauty and strength, the work of a master in perfect command of his medium * Washington Post *
The prose is clean and hard as pebbles . . . The great news is that All the Pretty Horses is only part one of the trilogy, and so, conceivably, only a third as good as it's going to get * Independent on Sunday *
A uniquely brilliant book . . . told in language as subtly beautiful as its desert setting . . . One of the most important pieces of American writing of our time * Sunday Times *
In a single stride it takes McCarthy to the forefront of contemporary American fiction. All the Pretty Horses is indisputably a masterpiece * Financial Times *
The finest action writer since Hemingway . . . a darkly shining work . . . immensely entertaining . . . executed with consummate skill and much subtlety - the effect is magnificent * Observer *
A masterpiece * Time Out *
