Has anyone read McCarthys latest novels? Reviews say he breaks his old boundaries and I'm curious what they mean. Posted on May 20, 2023 by Anonymous Has anyone read McCarthys latest novels? Reviews say he breaks his old boundaries and I'm curious what they mean.
Also I skimmed the synopsis what is up with the first novel the passenger having all these mysteries that never get remotely solved. Is it all metaphorical or is it intentionally left unsolved for some purpose. Is it all about obsessing over somethings in life that have no explanation?

why don't you read it for yourself and find out
I think it means it has trannies and schizo incest israelites
lots of unsolved parts, but it solves unexpected things in the meantime

One way this could be read is that the protagonist is slowly having a mental breakdown and is suffering from paranoia. Another way of reading it is that it’s a lot harder to bring the elements of a plot back together at the end of a book after throwing them out there and McCarthy wasn’t up to the task of tying up the loose ends.
Yes, but it’s barely part of the story.
the main girl seemed like mccarthy's waifu (beautiful and hyperintelligent). besides that i interpreted her character as being fated to die. that if she lived then she would be just like their father and create something worse than a nuclear bomb and unintentionally or intentionally wipe out humanity. this seems hinted in her dream where she sees hell or the void. i think that's why she commits suicide or at least one of the reasons, she is semi conscious of this. also that's not a spoiler, it happens in the beginning.
Has anyone confirmed the tranny part?
there is a tranny adroitly named Debussy
Fuck, anon... I thought you were trolling me
tranny in the new orleans summer in the 80s, imagine the smell
It's not a huge part of the book but it sticks out. The character is there, it has conversations with Oiler, and they point out how a bunch of dudes find it SUPER FUCKING HOT but it doesn't have a huge impact on the overall story.
I very much enjoyed the books, especially Stella Maris but if you want everything wrapped up neatly and explained for you like this anon:
you're going to be a bit disappointed and annoyed.
I especially liked when Alicia describes what it would be like to die by throwing yourself into a frigid lake with a weight around your neck. Beautifully disturbing and it's stuck with me, especially when she mentions you need to leave the key in the boat otherwise at the bottom you'll be panicking looking around for it.
>not a huge part of the book
Maybe I'll pick it up when Barnes & Noble has a sale.
Stella Maris is absolutely nothing like his earlier books. Instead of being poetic cowboy book, it's a bunch of Socratic dialogues about 20th century mathematics. It's a pretty big departure
It's very similar to Sunset limited and The Crossing in its soliloquy sections.
anyone remember the part where the private investigator/identity dealer predicts bitcoin?
the book was written in 2017 bro
What was up with Stella Maris’ ‘reveal’ about Bobby being braindead and afraid of depths
what about it was unclear
So she was sent a letter that he was dead, but he actually survived and recovered? And she killed herself in the meantime? that seems like a big fuck up
