Publisher's Summary

The Counsellor is the story of a lawyer whose desire to get rich, in order to impress his fiancée, leads him to become involved in a risky drug-smuggling venture. His contacts in the high-stakes cocaine trade are the mysterious Reiner and the seductive Malkina.

don't bother

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.
