Last week I read Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. It’s a novel about a father and son trying to survive in some kind of post-apocalyptic world. It’s not clear what the apocalypse was but it’s made the world miserable. The writing style is pretty unusual, which from what I hear is the way McCarthy writes all his books. I don’t want to spoil anything from the book for you but rather just share I thought it was an awesome book and I’m looking forward to the upcoming movie adaptation (Viggo Mortensen plays the main dude). Even those of you who aren’t so big on reading (Dave) should check the book out because it’s a pretty gripping and touching narrative. It’s pretty bleak though, so not for the faint of heart. Somehow it ended up on Oprah’s Book List. Don’t let that dissuade you, even if her reading club is often full of utter garbage and harmfully ignorant tripe.
