Hey, has anyone read No Country For Old Men and seen the movie?

Can you please help me out with a list of differences between the novel and the film?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

and they walk around the desert for 40 years to try and find the place that this other guy promised them a while ago.

All I really need is a list of differences between the book and the movie and I'll be set. Can anyone who's read the book and seen the movie please help me with that?

Well, Tommy Lee Jones (protagonist) tries to get into Texas. But some guy name Brown Sugar doesn't let him.

So much better than the movie.

Basically, it's about thesekids with wierd abilities, and they get sent to a school to learn how to use them.

I don't want to spoil the ending, but Harry marries Ginny and has kids, and so does Ron and Hermione.

Would a homosexual euphemism ever not be sexual?

Hey, I've got a huge book report on No Country For Old Men due monday and I need help. At first I was just going to watch the movie, but apparently there are some pretty significant differences in the story, so I need help.

Does anyone know where I can find a detailed plot summary of the book? I've tried sparknotes and a bunch of other sites and I can't find anything on it.

Or, if anyone has read the book AND seen the movie, can you please tell me all the differences in between the two storylines?

Any help would be great


There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

+1000. I've read the book. It's not that hard to read.

No I won't answer your questions.


DO NOT "JUST" WATCH THE MOVIE. I repeat. Do not "just" watch the movie. There are elements of the book missing from the movie.

Such as?

Honestly tho, reading this book isn't gonna help me in life. If you could just find it in your heart to help me out that would be great.

Unless it somehow makes you feel superior to **** me over

It'll help you a hell of a lot more than whatever else you were planning on doing while not reading the book (most likely masturbation).

You already fucked yourself over.

Really? You're gonna try to pull that card? I believe YOU fucked you over.

If I help you out, in the end you learn nothing.
