Last night I finished reading this. It completely blew me away and I'd say it's definitely one of my favorite books now.
I'm slowly making my way through the /lit/ recommended list. I know that Suttree is on it but I need more McCarthy. The film adaption of No Country is fucking god-tier but I've heard some say it's one of his weaker books?
In your opinion, which of his books are worth my time? I'll probably read them all at some point but I have a ton on my to-read list as it stands now.
My objective McCarthy rankings
1. Blood Meridian
3. The Crossing
4. All the Pretty Horses
5. Child of God
6. Outer Dark
7. The Sunset Limited (play)
8. The Road
9. No Country for Old Men
10. The Orchard Keeper
11. Cities of the Plain
I haven't read The Stonemason, The Counsellor or The Gardner's Son (stage play and two screenplays)

and the sky is blue. any other keen insights for us sherlock?
>Fuck off back to your campus so you can hold your book covers up as girls walk by
>projecting this hard
>They're never going to ask you what you're reading btw
but, grats, just cause someone calls out your favorite pseudointellectual drivel hack author for what it is means you immediately respond with unrelated ad hominems. as expected from a mccarthyfag.
I have a fun game for you, anon. A real useful trick
If your response to someone contains the word "projecting" and you aren't using it ironically (that basically means as a joke) then you are probably better off putting your head in front of a speeding bus
>His list of those whom he calls the “good writers”...precludes anyone who doesn’t “deal with issues of life and death.” Proust and Henry James don’t make the cut. “I don’t understand them," he says.
