The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Recommended Posts

I just finished reading "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. What an intense story!

 

For those of you unfamiliar, it's about a man and his son on a post apocalyptic journey thru a nuclear(?)* winter in a dead world, evading the only people left to avoid starvation and cannibals. They are following a road "south" to the sea to find warmer climate. It's scary, touching and ultimately grim. I highly recommend it.

 

*We never really know for sure what caused the destruction. It could be caused by a comet or giant meteor impact. But thru brief flashbacks, we know fire and ash destroyed all plant and most all animal and human life.
