The Road By Cormac McCarthy

McCarthy’s writing in The Road is amazing. The novel tracks a father and son as they travel along a road, trying to survive in a desolate world after an unnamed apocalyptic event, but this is not what captivates the reader. Despite their despair and seemingly hopeless plight, McCarthy is able to tell a story of hope, of strength and of love. There is so much more to this novel than the bleak, depressing struggle that is the setting. It is heart wrenching.
