Fiction • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

The source for the superb film NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is the equally superb short novel by Cormac McCarthy. Just as the casting of Javier Bardem for the movie role of killer-for-hire Anton Chigurh was inspired, so too is Sean Barrett a befitting narrator for the audiobook version. Barrett voices Chigurh with chilling nonchalance. This characterization is made more engaging by his contrasting interpretations of the other characters, who are brought to life complete with west Texas accents and head-scratching consternation. The novel is taut and evenly paced; the dialogue terse and always believable. Barrett performs with an unerring sense of character, pace, and drama.
