Adapting to a newera

”You have to be youngto keep up today!”

“And the constant changing of the computer systems!”

”A man cannotescapewhat’scoming to him.”

Our story’s metaphor for death:

”I didn’twant to learn more!”

The villain

Chigurhdoesn’t come from the place where the story is set. He comes from elsewhere and looks different - more modern.

We do not really get to know Chigurh but he doesn’t need to be explained. He is just there.

Chigurh is unstoppable in his brutality and without morals. He just moves on without looking back.

Chigurh is described as ”A ghost – prettymuch”
