    A man and his young son traverse a blasted American landscape, covered with the ashes of the late world. The man can still remember the time before but not the boy. There is nothing for them except survival, and the precious last vestiges of their own humanity. At once brutal and tender, despairing and hopeful, spare of language and profoundly moving, The Road is a fierce and haunting meditation on the tenuous divide between civilization and savagery, and the essential sometime terrifying power of filial love. It is a ... Show more

Great Book That Breaks The Mold

by Rance V on Apr 10, 2013

This read is considered by many a great work in the genre of "Epic Prose Poetry." I don't like that consideration. I think this is great fiction with commentary over many religious and secular issues. Not to mention the story itself is quite compelling. Read this book.

i thought this book was interesting and an attention grasper.

Swede

A brutal compelling read

by Swede on Sep 13, 2012

Not to be read by anyone who is depressed. This will send him over the edge. It's dark, but compelling reading. The world has been scorched by some unknown force for a long time.No food production, no electricity, no police, ... every man for himself. A boy and his father make their way to the coast, dodging roving gangs who capture and eat people to survive. Nothing specifically repelling or horrific (ala Stephen King, say) but a continuing unrelenting darknesss of scenery. Long abandoned towns, farms, A resourceful father trying to save his son. A compelling read with no fun in it.

Read the book

by gramcracker on May 31, 2012

The book was in good condition. The story was very good. It was slightly depressing but that was the nature of the plot. Told with good detail.

Discussions about The Road

Book Napakin

Depressing or heartening?

I have friends who tell me that the Road is depressing, wife threatens murder/suicide pact with the cats after reading, etc. because of how bleak The Road is. But I thought it was fairly uplifting in a defiant sort of way. The father is determined to keep a spark of humanity alive rather than just ... Read more
