It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is grey. 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 food - and 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 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.Hide synopsis

This read is considered by many a great work in the genre of "Epic Prose Poetry." I don't like that consideration. I think this is great fiction with commentary over many religious and secular issues. Not to mention the story itself is quite compelling. Read this book.
Not to be read by anyone who is depressed. This will send him over the edge.
It's dark, but compelling reading. The world has been scorched by some unknown force for a long time.No food production, no electricity, no police, ... every man for himself.

I have friends who tell me that the Road is depressing, wife threatens murder/suicide pact with the cats after reading, etc. because of how bleak The Road is.
But I thought it was fairly uplifting in a defiant sort of way. The father is determined to keep a spark of humanity alive rather than just ...
