    If by page turner you mean “it gets fricking repetitive near the middle”, then no, I had actually good books in mind.

      I have never read anything that has gripped me so much that once I finished reading it, I immediately begin rereading it. I unironically want to buy a revolver and go out horse riding around Northern Mexico.

      to be fair this is generally symptomatic of undiagnosed ADHD which the scientific community are just starting to understand. According to the DSM-V (a sciency handbook of sorts), ADHD afflicted individuals do not get the dopamine hits that NT people get when reading books and find themselves not finishing a book or putting off tasks such as washing the dishes and ending up hyperfixating on youtube videos. this is why NT (neurotypical aka normie) people have no problem reading dryer texts and can complete mundane chores and can finish texts without effort as they are constantly stimulated and actually enjoy the tasks at hand. from what I am led to believe, NT people experience a feeling of euphoria when completing mundane tasks or reading complex texts that us ADHD people don't attain. this can be solved through medical treatments to provide our brain with the ability to live as a NT person would by supplementing prescription medication. Our ability to hyperfixate on topics is also a superpower for us as we can understand topics at a deeper level than NT's by mentally tearing it apart opposed to just knowing it at a superficial level. essentially, NT's can finish a text and barely know it at a surface level (just ask them to explain blood meridian - they generally don't understand the deeper abstract concepts), but us ND people often can't finish a book or complete our washing due to a lack of spoons, however when we actually have the executive function to complete tasks we do it far better than an NT.

      It makes a stylish use of the language, but then it gets too repetitive and doesn’t quite hit as much as the first quarter of the book. The first or so pages are immaculate.

        The first quarter is literally a blank slate. This book was written for the judge, as a vehicle for delivering the sentiments the author had obviously collected over the years in some notebook he kept in his pocket. I promise you thats what happened. Its so clear.

            A lot of gnosticism. No idea how McCarthy got a hold of all that in the 70-80s.

        The only thing about BM that gets repetitive are the descriptions of violence and that's on purpose to show how the kid is growing desensitized to the cruelness of the West. The images conjured for the rest really do stay fresh all the way through and they all have meaning, philosophical or otherwise.

        A lot of gnosticism. No idea how McCarthy got a hold of all that in the 70-80s.

        The gnostic part of Blood Meridian is a tad overstated.

            Who cares about the story? Who cares about repetition either? Some modernists literally made whole acclaimed careers repeating the same sentence 50 times in the same book with slight variations. BM always has fresh descriptions even if the environment is the barren desert landscape.

    It’s a very different atmosphere, but Updike’s Rabbit Quartet succeeds at this, more in a soap-opera (I have to admit) way of domestic dramas and crises, but where you still want to see what happens to the characters.

    Does Blood Meridian romanticize indians as pacifistic dindus or are they just as violent as the whites?

      The Indians are violent too mostly, it differentiates between the behaviours of different tribes but the mostly featured ones are just as violent as the whites. Now go read it.
