Rick Groen in The Globe and Mail gave it a rave. Excerpt:

"Fate's impassive coin toss, evil's relentless pursuit, the unwise bravado of youth, the sad inadequacy of wisdom - novelist Cormac McCarthy invested all his classic themes into No Country for Old Men, but with a difference. In contrast to the baroquely wordy books that cemented his reputation (the Faulknerian locutions of Suttree, the Biblical cadences of Blood Meridian), this one is succinctly plotted and powered almost exclusively by taut dialogue. In fact, it already reads like a screenplay, a masterful screenplay, and the Coen brothers have taken full advantage of the gift. Their adaptation is impeccable, a perfect mirror of McCarthy's prose - sparse, suspenseful, probing and profoundly disturbing."
