I started this year of reading on the right track.
It’s only the second day of the year and I have already finish the first book on the list.
The first book on the list was Suttree by Cormac McCarthy, he is one of my favorite, it is a bit difficult to read but his style is truly a thing of beauty.
You visually, through the eyes of Cornelius Suttree, a ever-moving river fill with
life,death, humor and a cast of outcast trying to survive in the banks of the Tennessee River near Knoxville. Mr. Suttree has forsaken a life of privilege for a never peaceful life in a rundown houseboat. There he is witness to the harsh reality of living in the margins of society.
As always Mr. McCarthy style,deep and rich vocabulary takes you on a journey you will not easily forget. I can understand without a doubt why he is considered a genius. I highly recommend this book, it’s not easy reading a novel by Cormac McCarthy but it is something you should never pass the opportunity to do.
Now on to the next book, The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner.
So that’s 3809 pages down, 45,933 pages to go.
Total Pages 115,389 pages
