NATIONAL BESTSELLER

PULITZER PRIZE WINNER

National Book Critic's Circle Award Finalist

A New York Times Notable Book

One of the Best Books of the Year

The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, The Denver Post, The Kansas City Star, Los Angeles Times, New York, People, Rocky Mountain News, Time, The Village Voice, The Washington Post

The searing, postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece.

A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged foodand each other.

The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

Synopsis:

Coming soon as a major motion picture from Dimension Films, "The Road" offers an unflinching meditation of the worst and the best that people are capable of--ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

I think this is probably the book of the decade. After everything that we have seen and experienced in the last 10 years, from 9/11; the Wars, The New Orleans flood debacle, swine flu, y2K worries, I can't imagine that any one of us did not have visions of the end of the world as we know it, in one way or another. Haunting, frightening, sobering and yet beautiful, this novel has stayed in my head since I the first reading; and I have read it many times since then. Humanity, take note, and learn.
