I can't decide if I really disliked either one, but quit them both for the same reason. BM was bleak, the character “the kid” wasn't really a character. The same with the guy in MN. I think I got to over 80 pages on both books. I don't know what these authors are trying to portray in their novels. There's quite a lot in McCarthy's writing, but his prose makes in inaccessible. There's very little in KV's writing, but his prose is more simplistic. The outcome is the same.
The characters in both deny us access to their conscious. The point of the books leave you wondering if there is one. Both could be about Gnosticism or at least Blood Meridian is meant to be but I'm not going to pretend I didn't just come across the term. Worst post I've done. Read about 25% of BM and about 40% of MN.
