The Road by Cormac McCarthy Book Review

The Road by Cormac McCarthy is a post apocalyptic novel about survival and love. This is the first book that I read by McCarthy, though I recognize some of his other titles.

The prose is different from most novels, using minimal punctuation and attributes. At first this is difficult to follow, but becomes easier to understand as the novel progresses. The prose supplements the vivid picture painted by McCarthy.

I highly recommend this book.
