Story

First time I've negatively review Cormac

The screenplay came first. The book came second. The audiobook came third. That's worst to best, and "best" is not quite mediocre. And yet...MILES better than the screenplay. Ridley Scott made a terrible film out of a terrible Cormac McCarthy story. That terrible story is now a "meh"...audiobook. Never heard of this? There's good reason...
Jonathan Davis does his darndest to polish this turd.
