Fascinating yet grim tale of the end of the world

by colbyjordan2002@yahoo.com on 8/4/2007

McCarthy is a true literary treasure, and this book helps prove it. It is a dark journey at the end of world, a father and son trying to survive a trip cross county to the sea, to hope. This book sings with sarrow but there is also hope. Highly recommended! Also Try "ACROSS THE HIGH LONESOME" awesome book I picked up after seeing Larry McMurtry Give it props!

The Road is Fantastic

This book is stark, horrific, and beautiful at the same time. The man and the boy, as McCarthy refers to his characters, are a study in love and devotion in a world filled with ash, hunger, and despair. Remiscent of Elie Wiesal's novel, Night. McCarthy deserves the title of "a great American writer."

The searing, postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece.

A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food?and each other.

The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.
