From Library Journal
To coincide with the paperback release of McCarthy's National Book Award winner, All the Pretty Horses ( LJ 5/15/92), Vintage is reissuing these two earlier novels. Relating the story of a mother's search for her lost child, Outer Dark was described by LJ 's reviewer as a "novel full of horror and pathos" ( LJ 9/15/68). Child of God tells an equally bleak story with characters that comprise a "sad human compost heap" ( LJ 1/15/74). For serious fiction collections.

Be somewhat cautioned this content may not be suitable for everyone. Great author that I previously so much enjoyed, until I got to this book. Would have a hard time recommending.
My main problem with this book is a big problem for me. I found the book to be very boring. I had a hard time staying focused on what was going on, and at times I had to force myself to not just stop reading. I'm not sure why I found it this way, but it may have something to do with the pacing. I found this to be a much slower paced novel than The Road.
