The Road

I read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Finished it last night. Here's my review:

The RoadThe Road by Cormac McCarthy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Both bleak and beautiful. The bleakness emanates from the scorched landscape, external and internal, we travel with this father and son; the beauty from the love between them.

Some have called this achingly sad novel a warning. I can see why. But I think, in a very strange way, it's also a celebration - of all that we have, all we too often don't appreciate, and of love, the greatest and frailest gift of all.
