The blend of Gaiman's dry wit and Pratchett's zany humor make this book impossible to put down! You've never thought of the Apocalypse playing out in quite this way!

Whew! THE ROAD is a draining, exhausting, bleak, gut-wrenching, bleak, fast-paced, bleak novel. Did I mention it was BLEAK?     The book is 279 pages and they fly by. I think I read …

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.

Enjoyable. Both authors can lampoon and pastiche without necessarily making fun or being irreverent. it's got earnestness and caritas hidden behind the snark. :)

This book by Terry Prachett (know for the Discworld series) and Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Stardust among others) is a perfect marriage. Both are very capable of using subtleties to the extreme and here they …

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.

One of the absolute best books from an excellent writer. I've recommended this to many people, and I've only heard praise, never complaints from those who read it.
