Well written, yes. Hard to put down, yes. One of the most depressing books I've ever read, unfortunately, also a yes. This post apocalyptic novel is almost brutal for those of us who really dive in and bond with the characters. While I can see the value of the writing and the story, I just can't bring myself to recommend this one. (Unless you have way too much joy in your life and want it taken down a notch.)Read More
This is an excellent book!!! I read it in a couple of days and will read it again. I passed it on to my sister.Read More
I really wanted to like this book but it just depressed me. I enjoyed the literary style but didn't feel the story line had much substance. It may have just not been my type of book.Read More
At once brutal and tender, despairing and hopeful, The Road is McCarthy¿s brave and unforgettable meditation on the thin line between humanity and chaos. I haven't read anything like it, and I will read it again and again. Truly a book that will stay with you forever.Read More
Pulitzer prize winning tale of an extraordinary love between a father and his son trying to survive despite desperate conditions. It is a very heavy, heart-wrenching story which holds you until the very end.Read More
This was one of the most profound books I've ever read. It's written so simply, yet through that simple language the author manages to portray such complex internal experiences. Don't expect a happy little fairy tale story, this is a deep novel of realism.Read More
Cormac McCarthy is a brilliant writer. His sentences are short, concise and profound. The Road is a look at what would happen at the end of our world from Cormac McCarthy's perspective. It is dark and bleak with a flicker of light. The story follows the journey of a father and son and their struggle to survive. I was deeply moved by their bond and the hope and faith that they had in each other. I finished the book in 2 days- needless to say, I had a very hard time putting it down.Read More
