Cormac McCarthy wrote the book of the magnificent screen play No Country for Old Men, immortalized by the genius Coen Brethren, and goes on with The Road. This book engulfs the reader into a future not far away in an environment not far fetched, of the American apocalypse. We follow the father, the son and the open road and cannot turn away until the end is reached. Written in a style that is remarkably apt to modern literature, with a thickness of story and emotion that belongs among the preserved big shot writers of centuries long gone, McCarthy has created an immovable object in our book shelf. Read it once, read it twice.
