The Road

Author: Cormac McCarthy
ISBN-10: 0307387895

This book is pretty good. I read it all last night in one big chunk because it was so compelling. It is an apocalyptic, stream of consciousness, eerie book about a man and his son. Though the topic was somewhat depressing I found myself unable to put it down because I simply had to know the end of the road. The author portrayed the little boy very well and I just had to finish it. It was haunting.

I don't know if I love it, and I know it's a sad book rather than a happy one, but I definitely recommend it.
