5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and enthralling, 28 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Road (Kindle Edition)
A fantastic book that left me stunned. This is not a book for the faint of heart. You will feel empty and sad at many points throughout, but it is possibly the most believable view of a post apocalyptic world ever put on paper and it draws you in and holds you from start to finish. It is not a story, but a birds eye view into the shattered lives of a man and his son as they make a difficult and potentially pointless journey.

If you are looking for a light distraction, this is not the book for you. If you are a fan of dark dramas or especially post apocalyptic fiction, you will love this book. The writing style has a poetic simplicity that can be hard to get into, but well worth the effort and flowing once you have the rhythm. The ideas and settings are vivid and so very real.

Highly recommended.
