      Good book but it's memed on Ganker because it was supposed to be filmed decades ago but plans fell through and it became a meme that it is "unfilmable". It's by the guy who wrote The Road and No Country for Old Men, so it's a very brutal and violent western.

      I don't know I didn't really like it, almost everyone I know bounced off it (even online) and found it incredibly grueling to read. I watched a Yale lecture about it and the professor remarked that it was often boring, aimless and repetitive. I read it and although it had some enjoyable sections they were not long and most of the book was not pleasant to read (not because of the violence fyi).

      The prose is great, so if you can enjoy a book just for the quality of the language, it’s worth reading. It’s also quite singular in its bleakness. I would recommend The Crossing over it though; that’s also quite bleak but it’s full of beautiful, lucid imagery. Possibly too much for some tastes as he does go on with descriptions of people and landscapes but I loved it.

      Reading real westerns is badwrongfun because it doesn't shit on whitey for dealing with brutal warrior indians on equal terms but shit from McCarthy is sufficiently self-flagellating and "realistic" (read: exaggerating how evil and brutal people were) and the terseness and run-on-sentences is sufficiently "literary" for critic homosexuals to praise it ad nauseam.

      The Road had sections which were cut out of the film for being too gruesome, like seeing a charred baby on a spit. There's probably too much rape for a modern movie in Blood Meridian, otherwise you could def film it but it would be pretty disgusting and gruesome.

        Meanwhile in actual reality, outside the lies of pederast writers like mccarthy, the Comanches are one of the only groups from western times that we have actual first-hand accounts of them torturing babies just for fun. (a few others like the Cheyenne killed them as well according to their own accounts but justified it as killing future warriors and they did supposedly not torture toddlers for kicks like the Comanche were known for)

    That would be gay as all frick.

    Blood Meridian is not an action story.
    It would be hard for a film or even a TV series to do it justice. And not because of the CSA shit. I'm talking about doing the Boy/Man in a way that doesn't completely ruin him. He's present for the story but McCarthy (almost) never tells you what the boy is thinking or even doing. He never tells you how much he was involved or not involved. How he felt about it.

    How good or evil the boy is, is up to your own interpretation. Some readers' boy is gung ho and neck deep in the depravity, other's boy is just a bystander or a witness.

    My boy is not your boy and your boy is not anyone else's boy.
    McCarthy created a character that belongs to the reader and the reader alone.

    And a video game adaptation would of frick it up even more than a film adaptation.

    If you just want a gritty violent western, Rockstar has you covered.

    Blood Meridian is more than the gore and shock value. It's art. And I know how pretentious and homosexual that sounds.but it's the truth. Very few stories accomplish what McCarthy did with Blood Meridian.

    Blood Meridian is a book that will ruin all other books for you. Blood Meridian makes even the best novels look like garbage.
    And this is even with McCarthy being a giant fricking moron that doesn't know how to use punctuation.

    If he just used punctuation then everyone could read Blood Meridian and share in the greatness of the story. But sadly most people will get too frustrated by the lack of periods and commas. I know I gave up reading it twice before I finally just powered through and you used to it.
    You have to just force it until you get used to the lack of punctuation.

        Where did I say it was bad. I sad it's hard to read until you get used to it. And it is for a lot of people. We are raised to read and write using punctuation.

        So reading without it takes some getting used to.

        I have done nothing but praise Blood Meridian and McCarthy. You taking offense because I said it takes some time to get used to his writing makes you a fricking precious little snowflake that I'm shocked can even handle Blood Meridian considering how easily bothered you seem to be.

      Bloodborne 2 should be a prequel set in the pirate age, with fishman pirates and sawfish swords and all that cool stuff, and mid way through the game you stumble into a lost aztec kingdom in the jungle, where they do cosmic ritual sacrifices to eldrich gods.

    The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it all from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning.

    >The universe is no narrow thing and the order within it is not constrained by any latitude in its conception to repeat what exists in one part in any other part. Even in this world more things exist without our knowledge than with it and the order in creation which you see is that which you have put there, like a string in a maze, so that you shall not lose your way. For existence has its own order and that no man's mind can compass, that mind itself being but a fact among others.

      Prose is usually just an excuse to push bad writers when the cliques behind them have nothing else to pin their lies on.
      Sometimes, very rarely, it means they have a sense of phrasing and poetry to their writing. Which can include made-up words and references but doesn't have to.

      Each writing style depends on the author and the culture they originate from. Some have it ingrained within the traditional morals they've been raised, hence why some literature are more off-putting than others.
      My home country literature are all essentially depressive and cautionary tales about the false glory of battle and the aftermath that it follows.
      Even fictional stories where the hero has superhuman strength ends up having his family and town completely butchered because he decided to slay the dragon instead of defending his hometown There's plenty of examples but even the most bright ones have a depressing ending to them.

      >The second in command, now left in charge of the camp, was a man of gigantic size who rejoiced in the name of Holden, called “Judge” Holden of Texas. Who or what he was no one knew but a cooler blooded villain never went unhung; he stood six feet six in his moccasins, had a large fleshy frame, a dull tallow colored face destitute of hair and all expression. But when a quarrel took place and blood shed, his hog-like eyes would gleam with a sullen ferocity worthy of the countenance of a fiend. His desires was blood and women, and terrible stories were circulated in camp of horrid crimes committed by him when bearing another name, in the Cherokee nation and Texas; and before we left Fronteras a little girl of ten years was found in the chapperal, foully violated and murdered. The mark of a huge hand on her little throat pointed him out as the ravisher as no other man had such a hand, but though all suspected, no one charged him with the crime.

      Blood Meridian is a fictionalized account of the activities of the real life band of Indian hunters led by Joel Glanton. Prior to the war between the states, union General Chamberlain had been a member of the gang. His memoirs make up most of the historical accounts of the gang and its members, particularly concerning Judge Holden.
