    Description

    The best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Road returns with the first of a two-volume masterpiece: The Passenger is the story of a salvage diver, haunted by loss, afraid of the watery deep, pursued for a conspiracy beyond his understanding, and longing for a death he cannot reconcile with God. 

    Look for Stella Maris, the second volume in The Passenger series, on sale December 6th, 2022.

    1980, PASS CHRISTIAN, MISSISSIPPI: It is three in the morning when Bobby Western zips the jacket of his wet suit and plunges from the Coast Guard tender into darkness. His dive light illuminates the sunken jet, nine bodies still buckled in their seats, hair floating, eyes devoid of speculation. Missing from the crash site are the pilot’s flight bag, the plane’s black box, and the tenth passenger. But how? A collateral witness to machinations that can only bring him harm, Western is shadowed in body and spirit—by men with badges; by the ghost of his father, inventor of the bomb that melted glass and flesh in Hiroshima; and by his sister, the love and ruin of his soul.

    Traversing the American South, from the garrulous barrooms of New Orleans to an abandoned oil rig off the Florida coast, The Passenger is a breathtaking novel of morality and science, the legacy of sin, and the madness that is human consciousness.

    Commentaires

    2023 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction

    "A beguiling, surpassingly strange novel by the renowned—and decidedly idiosyncratic—author of Blood Meridian (1982) and The Road (2006)… It’s all vintage McCarthy, if less bloody than much of his work: Having logged time among scientists as a trustee at the Santa Fe Institute, he’s now more interested in darting quarks than exploding heads…Plenty of his trademark themes and techniques are in evidence, from conspiracy theories…and shocking behavior…to flights of beautiful language…Enigmatic, elegant, extraordinary: a welcome return after a too-long absence."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

    “A rich story of an underachieving salvage diver in 1980 New Orleans... This thriller narrative is intertwined with the story of Western’s sister, Alicia… He dazzles with his descriptions of a beautifully broken New Orleans… The book’s many pleasures will leave readers aching for the final installment.”—Publishers Weekly"

    Couldn’t get past second chapter

    This is so offensive and nasty.
    I’m from Knoxville Tn and read The Road but this is so over the top profane with beastiality…

    It’s a new Cormac McCarthy

    What can you say about one of the greatest writers of our generation that hasn’t been said before. This story moves you into his new realm. The narrating is flawless. The story flows over you like a warm
    shower after a rough cool day outside in the wind. You want to save it but need to progress through one of the last ones from CM. Life isn’t perfect but then there’s a book by Cormac McCarthy.

    All confusing sci fi

    Hated this that even Julia Whelen couldn't save. A mishmash of garbled nonsense I actually pre ordered. Just don't if you want any interesting narrative.

    The emperor has no clothes

    I'm sorry. I love McCarthy's writing, but this was drivel. I made it all the way through but this is 13 hours of my life I will never get back. Simply pointless. Is he playing a joke on us? Was this just to see if his audience will pretend to find meaning or even a plot in this? I did not. The emperor has no clothes.

    When I find an author that I like, I develop trust for them. I've read a half dozen books by McCarthy and he earned that trust. I pre-ordered this book based on that trust. That trust is lost. I won't do that again, and there is no way in heck that I will buy the next book in this series, Stella Maris. The idea of listening to 5 hours of that dreck makes me ill.

    Terrible narrator

    Julia Whelans narration is really awful, and she narrates half of the book. Unsurprisingly, The Passenger itself had been absolutely stunning but I'm not sure if I will be able to finish in this format. Her wooden performance has sucked all of the magic out of what I'm hoping is a masterpiece.

    10% Story and 90% chatter.

    I’m reading the other reviews that go on and on about how great this book is and I feel like its because of who wrote it. I love his other works too but this offering is terrible.

    I was looking forward to starting it and kept waiting on it to become interesting but that never happened. Maybe it’s just so genius it’s beyond me but I don’t think so.

    This isn’t a novel. It’s an attempt at esoteric philosophy that we are supposed to believe will connect in a coherent way at some point. It fails miserably.

    I guess even the great ones can swing and miss sometimes.

    Remarkable

    As with previous McCarthy novels, The Passenger purports themes that are as unsettling as they are compelling. In his most dialogue-driven novel. McCarthy deals with matters of life and death…but mostly death. This book will help you understand that life is suffering. It will satisfy the curious mind. This book can make you reread Cant, explore physics and give you a different opinion on the Kennedy assassination.

    It is a masterpiece.

    Horrible

    I loved The Road and ordered this the day it came out. It was awful and I made myself finish it. Don’t waste your time.

    McCarthy dealing w/ Mortality, Paranoia

    Best Parts?
    Hearing McCarthy describe Nagasaki, String Theory and his conspiracy-fueled discussion on JFK's assassination is but the beginning of the vast treasures this book imparts. Can't wait to read 2nd Volume for more. Possibly most stoic character McCarthy ever wrote but there's something beautiful & almost fatalistic to this gorgeously stark novel.

    A very Cormac novel

    The Passenger is a great novel for anyone who likes to dig as deep as they can into Cormac McCarthy’s writing and spend a good deal of time thinking about and researching what deeper meanings might lay behind the surface level writing. In fact, it feels like Cormac was doing this to his own writing while he wrote The Passenger, as the novel feels very much like an exploration of Cormac’s earlier writing by the writer himself. A very meta-McCarthy novel, heavy in allusion, often back to his own work, further building upon his statements that books are made out of books. A great read that will allow years of exploration and debate.
