Book Discussion (Suttree)

Just after finishing it, Cormac McCarthy’s Suttree is already on of my favorite books. I have read a lot of McCarthy’s books and really enjoy his work. His prose is incredibly lucid, beautiful, and very unique. I think McCarthy’s style really shines in Suttree and creates a masterpiece. Like some of his other books, the story is not super complex, but it’s incredibly human and raw. The characters are all unique and relatable, Suttree especially. Following his day to day life, McCarthy really explores human nature and different emotions. This combines really well with McCarthy’s prose. The metaphors and beautiful imagery are truly captivating and make Suttree’s everyday tasks seem magical. While McCarthy’s prose really shined in this novel, the storytelling is also exceptional. Suttrees adventures are enchanting and so simple yet the way McCarthy tells them are just incredible. The scene in the Carolina woods is probably one of the most enthralling scenes I have ever read. The whole book in general is so raw and is super emotionally profound. I don’t think it would’ve been as profound if it wasn’t for McCarthy’s style, but he wrote it and created one of the best books ever. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
