The length of this audiobook may discourage some, but perseverance brings its own rewards. McCarthy, one of America’s premier novelists, can turn a sentence like few other authors. While the author is often associated with a certain minimalism in his dark writing, SUTTREE is more comparable to Faulkner’s works. Set in the Knoxville, Tennessee, region in the 1950s, the novel tells the story of Cornelius Suttree, who has repudiated his background, choosing instead the life of a reprobate fisherman. Richard Poe’s narration is strong enough to carry the language, settings, intensity, and characterizations in this superb work. Poe’s deep voice and long experience bring Suttree to life as he struggles, with the other outcasts, along the Tennessee River. M.L.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
