This is the best book I have read for a while; it is gripping, beautifully descriptive yet at the same time, grim and depressing, exploring the desperation and fight for survival that McCarthy predicts for the end of the world.
The characters are very easy to relate to, despite never knowing their names. Their story can bring you to tears at times, although there are some brief moments that are tender and will make you smile.
The style is almost poetic, and slightly abstract. There are no chapters, little punctuation and simple, short dialogue.
I would 100% recommend this book - it is a must-read and an absolute classic!
