I think it compares to Heart of Darkness but I read both of them some time ago.

Just started it. It’s more historical in nature as it is the American Southwest in the mid-1800s. Dark and mean so far. I don’t know where it’s going yet; but the prose style is pure McCarthy, written in that third-person semi-anonymous voice “the man”, “the hermit”. No proper names to make you part of the darkness. To say “we all carry this within us; beware.” I’ll let you know what I think when I get deeper in.
