NATIONAL BESTSELLER PULITZER PRIZE WINNER National Book Critic's Circle Award Finalist A New York Times Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, The Denver Post, The Kansas City Star, Los Angeles Times, New York, People, Rocky Mountain News, Time, The Village Voice, The Washington Post 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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

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.

A brutal compelling read
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
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.
