So I've read my fair share of McCarthy's books and I feel Outer Dark or Child of God are at least as good as his more /lit/ stuff, if not better. How do you feel about them, since I don't ever see them mentioned on here?
Suttree > Blood Meridian > All the Pretty Horses > Child of God > Cities of the Plain > The Crossing > Outer Dark > The Orchard Keeper
That being said I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of McCarthy's books.
Look at this suave fuck.
They are both great. Child of God is my favorite McCarthy. I enjoy the somewhat leaner prose, which I think is better at clearly conveying the imagery. I also like the short episodic chapters and the weird little inter-chapters.
This is accurate. Though I'd say there should be a power gap after Suttree >= Blood Meridian
>Still never had a real job
>Bang hot bitches
>Don't even use punctuation
>Get a post-apocalyptic story featured on a daytime talk show for housewives
How does one get so based?
I've read all McCarthy's narrative prose, need to read Gardener's Son and the Stonemason, and Child of God was easily my least favorite.
What do you see in it that I apparently missed? I want to like it.
