5.0 out of 5 stars 100 words on The Road, 1 April 2010
This review is from: The Road (Paperback)
Awesome Book. McCarthy bypasses what it was ended the world. No explosion, no impact, no `it'. Whatever happened happened a long time ago. And that's the brilliance of the concept: investigating the slow death of the world after the initial trauma has passed. How long until every scrap of food has been scavenged? Until the buildings collapse? Until the last man falls? That's what's fascinating. And the clean, lean prose that shows but never tells, that makes you experience the desperation and bleakness first hand - it's so appropriate and masterfully executed. No wonder this won the Pulitzer prize. Awesome book.
