I hope you burned it afterwards.
I read Blood Meridian recently and immediately started again after the last page.
Another book I can’t recommend enough is the “magnum opus” of British journalist and middle east correspondent Robert Fisk. “The Great War for Civilization” is the most detailed, instructive and downright shocking account of the geopolitical situation in the middle east, coming from the most knowlegeable source possible. A vital book to understand the ongoing conflicts.
