Book Review: “The Road”

Posted in Big Dog with tags , , , , on Wednesday, July 16 by KevinLHinton

As with most great novels, Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” takes place in post-apocolyptic America. This book is awesome, and you could probably read the entire thing in 5 or 6 hours. I suggest that everybody do so, so that I can confirm that it is sweet. Something about somebody else reading the same book I did and telling me they enjoyed it as well really cements my enjoyment of a book.

This book is written by the same author as “No Country for Old Men”. I haven’t seen that movie, but it appears to also be good, so I assume that it should be taken as an endorsement for this book as well. Additionally, they are already in production of the move for “The Road”, which enhances all book reading experiences when you get to see it come to life on the big screen.

Also, it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, so apparently other people like it too. The only bad thing I can say about it is that I think I heard Oprah is a pretty big fan. I didn’t know that Harpo was into post-apocolyptic adventure novels – maybe she is cooler than I thought.

Anyways – read this book.
