I recently finished Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD, a highly praised and award-winning novel that was made into a film that spent all of maybe two hours in theaters. It is also a novel that was appropriated …

It will pull you through an emotional wringer, mess you up, wring you out, stomp on you, rewash and rewring ... read it. Understand it is an emotional journey that goes to beautiful extremes.

Read the book, and don't skip it for the movie. The movie is a convincing adaptation, but lacks the poetry and voice of the original.

If you are given to depression or easily saddened, do not even touch this book. The writing style is sharp and clean like Hemingway but the content is nothing but dismal melancholy.
