Gardener's Son

Gardener's Son - Cormac McCarthy A screenplay is not my favorite format and I find the stage directions to be distracting and stop me from forgetting it's just a story I'm reading. But I still became involved in this play and cared about the characters, which is quite an accomplishment on Mr. McCarthy's part since the book is so very short. He manages to bring emotion, characterization and suspense into this short work with just a minimum of words.

It's not the best way to start off reading Cormac McCarthy's books but if you've read his others, don't miss this little gem.
