Sophia’s #CBR4 Review #20: The Orchard Keeper by Cormac McCarthy

I’m going to have to be honest on this one. Not only did I read The Orchard Keeper (1965) by Cormac McCarthy months ago, but even as I was reading, I sometimes had a hard time figuring out what was happening. In short: this review is not going to do justice to McCarthy’s writing. I’d really need to read it again and devote some time to it to understand it more fully, but that’s just not going to happen anytime soon.

As some of the Amazon reviews have reminded me, The Orchard Keeper takes place in rural Tennessee in the 1930’s. Three characters’ intertwined lives set up the background for McCarthy’s oft-recurring theme of inevitable change and nature.
