in a post-apocalyptic setting, cormac mccarthy delivers a haunting world where father and son ("...each the other's world entire") must make their way through together. mccarthy's writing keeps pace with no real chapters and short lyrical-like verses. it's a fairly easy read and worth every minute you spend on it.
the road is easily one of the best books i've read in a long time.
my only complaint is that viggo mortensen is starring in the film that's due to come out next year. he kind of makes my stomach ill. (oh well. i'm sure i'll get over it.)
