It is a screenplay. Who wants to read screenplays? Fans of Mr. McCarthy perhaps. The usual stuff: heard-it-all-before dialogues, boring technical details, endless roads at the Mexican border. And helplessly repetitive descriptions of our malevolent world. All in all a cheap, spiritless Tarantino-afterthought with too much Spanish talk. Don't waste your time and credits on it. If you want McCarthy, purchase The Road and nothing else.

What disappointed you about The Counsellor?
This is not Cormac McCarthy prose. It is a screenplay. It's boring and the reading is boring.
What could Cormac McCarthy have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Write it in prose.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Screenplays are not meant to be read, and this one is no exception. It's not literature. It's a poor description of a film.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
Audible is misleading you by not telling you it's a screenplay. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM.
