Nicholas Sparks on Cormac McCarthy

Horrible. [Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian] is probably the most pulpy, overwrought, melodramatic Cowboy vs. Indians story ever written.

I wish people used better language to describe things they don’t understand, or things that are simply not to their taste. Especially in public.

Write whatever you want (and by all means be wildly successful at it!) but when you earn your paycheck penning love stories for the masses it rings a little hollow to talk smack about authors outside your genre — especially a widely critically acclaimed author like McCarthy.
