Product description

Review

'Both terrifying and beautiful, it is about...the best and worst
of humankind...[it's] impossible to recommend it too highly.' -- Waterstone's Book Quarterly

'Brilliant...the prose is of such beauty...An extraordinary tale
of humanity in ruins - one we should all read'
-- Daily Mail

'One of the most powerful novels of 2006...an indelible end-times
parable' -- 'Best Fiction of 2006', Observer

'Utterly convincing and pysically chilling... All the modern novel
can do is done here.' -- Guardian

The Road inspires. We are watching a late flowering of a great
American novelist. -- Independent on Sunday

The sense of desperation, fear and loneliness is superbly evoked.
The book is unremittingly bleak, but it's mesmerising.
-- Literary Review

There's always a kind of ecstasy in reading McCarthy...it's so
good that it will devour you...It is incandescent. -- Daily Telegraph

This novel is about love...a beautiful and haunting work...[a]
strange and compelling work, more prose poem than novel. -- Financial Times Daily Telegraph

Work of such terrible beauty that you will struggle to look away.
It will knock the breath from your lungs. -- The Times

`An epic prose poem...builds to such a pitch of mournful
incantation hat something like real grief pours out' -- Sunday Herald

Book Description

The searing, post-apocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy’s masterpiece
