Book Review: The Road, by Cormac McCarthy

I LOVED THIS BOOK!! Have added it to my list of favorites on Shelfari. This is the first book I've read by Cormac McCarthy and he left me wanting to read more of his books.

The road is one of the most emotion provoking novels I've read, bringing out few of the positive kind. While the setting of the book occurs after a world wide catastrophe and survival is the objective, it also speaks so much more about the necessity of a guiding relationship between a father and son.

This book reads quickly. One evening I sat down with half the book left to read and couldn't put it down until I'd finished it.

Don't pick the book up unless you're prepared to read a really depressing book. I had suggested The Road to a friend and she couldn't get through the book. I had to tell her how it ends.

BOOK RATING: 5 out of 5

Yabbut in my defense, I wasn't reading it, I was listening to it. That made it anything but a "quick" consumption and left way too much time for the horror of the situation to sink in.
