I can't do much of anything but agree. I picked this up on vacation in San Francisco and read it while driving around the state. What a magnificent book. I've read some of the source material too, and am just as impressed by McCarthy's research as I am by his prose. What an astounding book. I wish I could find something else like it. Not, indeed, for the faint of heart. Or faint of stomach.
