I thought this was an excellent critical dissection of the book, Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy... If you haven't read it, consider it an imperative to go out and pick up a copy and read it immediately.
In my opinion, the Judge is one of the most interesting characters in the entirety of modern fiction... I love the comparisons of the Judge to Milton's version of the Devil in Paradise Lost... I don't like many books, but I don't hesitate to put this book among the top ten works of fiction I have ever read.
Thanks Rob for the link!
