BOOK REVIEW: The Road - Cormac McCarthy

Constantly dangling the American dream and the pioneering impulse that forged the country over a precipice, McCarthy shatters “the road” as a motif of adventure and escape and moulds it into an arena of constant threat and grotesque degradation.

Bleak, thoroughly affecting and yet utterly redemptive, The Road is a celebration of the indefatigable human spirit and driving will to survive; a juxtaposition of a burning hope in an utterly hopeless, burned world.
