HARPERCOLL
All the Pretty Horses - the first volume of the Borders Trilogy - tells of young John Grady Cole, the last of a long line of Texas ranchers. Across the border Mexico beckons - beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. With two companions, he sets off on an idyllic, sometimes comic adventure, to a place where dreams are paid for in blood.

I must confess that I didn't much like the story itself, but that is more than made up for by the extraordinary narration by Muller: each character is given their own voice and the narrated portions are given emphasis just where it should. The whole is far better than merely reading the book.

So many reviewers refer to this as a coming of age book - I've not thought of it that way, maybe I don't understand the reference. Cole is operating on his understanding of life so far; maybe lost in a time warp & not in the current challenges with how the world is changing. The values & familiar actions are imbedded in his nature. What else can he do? I like this character, his straight forward replies & economy of speech. I've enjoyed the book, the audio & movie.
