rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sobering, engrossing, and terrifying. Cormac MacCarthy deserved the awards for this post post apocalyptic tale. Sparse in punctuation and undefined dialogue, the reader follows a father and his young son on the road through a world that no longer exists. "The Road" published in 2006 won the Pulitzer Prize in 2007.
Entertainment Weekly in June 2008 named The Road the best book, fiction or non-fiction, of the past 25 years. That's when it went on my list.
