No quotation marks!1 star

Idk if it’s a faulty download or if it was published without them, but it’s hard to follow. The book itself is wonderfully written, however.15

In reference to what was said5 star

The book was great. His poetic prose as also stated, was meant to have odd and broken standards of grammar. His writing takes you through motions with the story and characters. It’s made in a way it sounds like sitting on the porch while grandpa tells a story. Although it was brutal. I loved it. Took me back.55

Ebook version is garbage1 star

The digital version is complete garbage. It has no commas quotation marks and it just rambles on and on and on and it's very hard to read this version because the shortage of punctuation makes it difficult to know where the author Cormac wanted the reader to pause or to emphasize a certain point.15
