Review All the Pretty Horses

Cormac McCarthy ã 2 Characters Free download Ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ã Cormac McCarthy All the Pretty Horses Read & download Ô 2 All the Pretty Horses tells of young John Grady Cole the last of a long line of Texas ranchers Acro. All the Pretty Horses isn t uite as grim as other Cormac McCarthy work that I ve read but considering that this includes The Road Blood Meridian No Country For Old Men and watching the HBO adaptation of his play The Sunset Limited it s still so bleak that your average person will be depressed enough to be checked into a mental ward and put on suicide watch after finishing itJohn Grady Cole is a sixteen year old cowboy in Texas a few years after World War II who was raised on his grandfather s ranch after his parents split up After his grandfather dies the ranch is being sold off With no where else to go John and his best friend Lacey Rawlins ride off for Mexico Along the way they hook up with a runaway kid who is nothing but bad news After getting work on a large ranch John catches the owner s eye with his skill working with horses but after being promoted John falls in love with the owner s daughter which leads to trouble for him and RawlinsI guess you could say that this is a tragic romance or a coming of age story but that s like comparing The Road to the The Road Warrior Or saying that Blood Meridian is just a western Or calling No Country For Old Men a simple crime story There s a lot going on than just a couple of kids running off to play cowboy John and Rawlins get their eyes harshly opened to just how cruel and unforgiving the world can be and that pleasures like young love can t possibly hope to endure in the face of thatAs usual McCarthy s views on life and death and good and evil won t leave any sane person skipping down the street while whistling and looking for rainbows but he s so skilled that even his grim outlook has a kind of dark beauty to it

My introduction to the fiction of Pulitzer Prize winner and Oprah Winfrey fan Cormac McCarthy is All the Pretty Horses the first novel in McCarthy s so called Border Trilogy published in 1992 Westerns set in the post World War II country between Texas and Mexico the trilogy continued with The Crossing and Cities of the Plain The first seventy five percent of this brooding terse and darkly mesmerizing ranching tale is glorious towering over the intersection of storytelling and language The last twenty five percent grows louacious and protracted breaking the fever and bringing the novel up short of being one of the best I ve read but it gets closeSan Angelo Texas in 1949 Sixteen year old John Grady Cole has grown up working his patriarchal grandfather s ranch in Tom Green County raised by Luisa the Cole ranch s cook after his theatrical actress mother left him at six months and his gambler father put in only fleeting appearances When John Grady s grandfather dies the ranch is passed to his mother who makes clear her intention to sell it Taciturn hard working and fluent in Spanish with some money saved and an exceptionally keen eye for horses John Grady receives sympathies from the family attorney and a brand new Hamley Formfitter saddle from his father He knows he s on his own nowJohn Grady lights out for old Mexico to find work Along for the journey is his loyal pragmatic seventeen year old friend Lacey Rawlins who despite speaking considerably less Spanish than John Grady does speak English pondering the afterlife and singing on the ride down Stopping for breakfast in Pandale on their way toward the Pecos River the pair realize they re being followed They confront a thirteen year old kid astride a magnificent horse who offers the name Jimmy Blevins The kid claims to be sixteen and is clearly on the run He has no money no food and despite giving Rawlins several occasions to abandon him once they cross into Mexico John Grady is unable or unwilling to When they got back to the cottonwoods Blevins was gone Rawlins sat looking over the barren dusty countryside He reached in his pocket for his tobaccoI m goin to tell you somethin cousinJohn Grady leaned and spat All rightEver dumb thing I ever done in my life there was a decision I made before that got me into it It was never the dumb thing It was always some choice I d made before it You understand what I m sayinYeah I think so Meanin whatMeanin this is it This is our last chance Right now This is the time and there won t be another time and I guarantee itMeanin just leave himYessirWhat if it was youIt aint meWhat if it wasRawlins twisted the cigarette into the corner of his mouth and plucked a match from his pocket and popped it alight with his thumbnail He looked at John GradyI wouldnt leave you and you wouldnt leave me That aint no argumentYou realize the fix he s inYeah I realize it It s the one he put hisself inThey sat Rawlins smoked John Grady crossed his hands on the pommel of his saddle and sat looking at them After a while he raised his headI cant do it he saidOkayWhat does that meanIt means okay If you cant you cant I think I knew what you d say anywaysYeah well I didntBlevins is fatally undone by a thunderstorm babbling that his family tree attracts lightning The boy strips naked and cowers in a ravine losing his horse his pistol and his clothes in a flash flood John Grady still refuses to abandon the kid until they ride into a Mexican village and find old Blevins pistol and horse under new ownership Offering to help Blevins get his property back the kid takes matters into his own hands Shots are fired and though Blevins finally goes his own way drawing the posse away from John Grady and Rawlins the two cowboys are certain that they haven t seen the last of old BlevinsJohn Grady and Rawlins continue on their three hundred kilometer trek through the state of Coahuila where just over the Sierra del Carmen the Mexicans tell of ranches that make John Grady think of the Big Rock County Mountains lakes and runnin water and grass to the stirrups They arrive at the Hacienda de Nuestra Senora de la Purisima Concepcion La Purisima an 11000 acre ranch watered with natural springs and filled with shallow lakes except in the western sections which rise to nine thousand feet The vaueros recognize John Grady and Rawlins as cowboys by the way the Americans sit in their saddles Drawing closer to La Purisima John Grady is fatally undone by the sight of a seventeen year old girl riding past them atop a black Arabian saddlehorse The ranch belongs to Don Hector Rocha y Villareal whose family has held the land for one hundred and seventy years Don Hector runs a thousand head of cattle and loves horses trapping wild ones that roam in the higher elevations When sixteen wild horses are brought down John Grady proposes to Rawlins that they break all of the beasts in over four days Their workshop draws a hundred spectators and culminates in resounding success John Grady is invited by Don Hector to his home which he shares with his daughter s great aunt Alfonsa and at times his passionate seventeen year old daughter Alejandra At a dance in La Vega John Grady and Alejandra linger out of the saddle At the band s intermission they made their way to the refreshment stand and he bought two lemonades in paper cones and they went out and walked in the night air They walked along the road and there were other couples in the road and they passed and wished them a good evening The air was cool and it smelled of earth and perfume and horses She took his arm and she laughed and called him a mojado reverso so rare a creature and one to be treasured He told her about his life How his grandfather was dead and the ranch sold They sat on a low concrete watertrough and with her shoes in her lap and her naked feet crossed in the dust she drew patterns in the dark water with her finger She d been away at school for three years Her mother lived in Mexico and she went to her house on Sundays for dinner and sometimes she and her mother would dine alone in the city and go to the theatre or the ballet Her mother thought that life on the hacienda was lonely and yet living in the city she seemed to have few friendsShe becomes angry with me because I always want to come here She says that I prefer my father to herDo youShe nodded Yes But that is not why I come Anyway she says I will change my mindAbout coming hereAbout everythingCormac McCarthy can write like no other author His facility with prose and dialogue reminded me of Stevie Ray Vaughan picking up a guitar and jamming McCarthy is an innovator and Parts I II and III of four were like hearing Stevie Ray jam Love Struck Baby on the radio for the first time I loved the way the novel parsed out information with McCarthy substituting descriptions and histories with impressions and hints much the way a West Texan would if pressed for information His dialogue is often witty and retains a well earned pathos while the very nature of the story is adventurous and fraught with tension In Part IV the taut control that McCarthy maintained up to that point is surrendered for self indugence Alfonsa an intriguing character who is neither evil nor good talks and tells and talks some about her history and why she cannot allow her niece and John Grady to be together I started skipping paragraphs then pages I knew the love affair was doomed but characters talking about it contradicts everything McCarthy built up to that point in the novel John Grady s flight from Mexico and his uest to find his horse before doing so goes on and on With neither Rawlins Alejandra or Blevins around to play off Grady including in the early go the novel mumbles to itselfThere is no denying the vision and storytelling breadth of three fourths of the book I wanted to be on that ride with John Grady and Rawlins for better or for worse Columbia Pictures did too In 1996 the studio offered the directing job to Billy Bob Thornton at the height of his filmmaking prestige for the low budget southern gothic Sling Blade Thornton wasn t familiar with the novel but loved westerns and with Matt Damon and Penelope Cruz in the leads turned in a rough cut that clocked in at 220 minutes and tested disastrously A Cliff Notes version of 115 minutes was released in December 2000 and ignored by audiences Thornton didn t direct again for twelve years

On the surface this book is a cowboy adventure A gritty story in which childhood doesn t exist and two teenage boys John Grady and Lacey Rawlins are alone riding in a land foreign to them They speak when they only truly have something worth saying They sleep under the stars Their only possessions are often the clothes on their back a razor and a toothbrush Oh and their horsesThis life is sometimes idyllic but often dangerous It becomes complicated when they run into Blevins a kid whose fate entwines with theirs with disastrous conseuences As in other books by this author themes of fate and inevitability echo Several lines have a prescient uality to happenings later on in the book And similar to No Country for Old Men the wheels of the story are pushed down the hill by one single decision It s pretty brutal cauterizing a bullet wound using a heated gun barrel is just one of the cringe inducing scenes though truth be told this is decidedly gentler than other McCarthy booksSo yes wild west saga But between the lines the book couldn t be romantic Not Nora Roberts romantic no although there is a love story here too But within this book pulses a heart that beats passionately for the past This heart is broken for the loss of a time that no longer exists The ticking clock has left John Grady in a country he doesn t recognise and to which he no longer belongs Set in 1949 he is witnessing is the death of an era People will watch movies about cowboys instead of living like them Elvis and television office jobs and jello molded salads an artificially sanitised culture is around the bend We don t glimpse the new world in the pages of this book but we readers know what is ahead and we know this guy on his horse will be the suare peg a ghostrider a bewildered and bewildering sightThis yearning nostalgia is reflected in unbelievably lyrical prose McCarthy outdoes himself here in lush descriptions that convey a deep romance while at the same point writing with zero sentimentality It s a magical mixture of the bleak and the heartfelt This novel isn t perfect The ending just as in No Country slows significantly from a galloping story to a series of rambling speeches But I just couldn t give it less than five stars I guess I like romance than I thoughtAt the end of the day there are few things John Grady can count on One is his profound solitude The other those horses those pretty horses time cannot touch them
