About This Item

London: Picador, 2006. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. First UK Edition. A fine copy in like D/W. THE ROAD movie is expected to be released this year with Viggo Mortensen as the father, Kodi Smit-McPhee as his son, and Charlize Theron as wife and mother. The author's highly acclaimed masterpiece that won the 2007 National Book Award, Oprah Book Club Pick, and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. A father and son walk alone through a dark, burned America, "each the other's world entire," and are sustained by love. Terse, poetic, magisterial, stunning. The First UK Edition seems to be much scarcer than its US counterpart. One for the Pension Fund!

Synopsis

The Road is a 2006 novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocalyptic tale of a journey taken by a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed all civilization and, apparently, almost all life on earth. The novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.

It came unannounced, uninvited. Sent to me in a plain box, came a package with some typical care pack items, and one of the most outstanding books I've read in a long time, "The Road", by Cormac McCarthy. My sister sent it because she had heard it was well recieved. Well recieved is an understatement. "The Road" is not simply a book, it's an experience. A post-apocalyptic story of a man and his son, truding through the ashen country, towards the coast in hopes of finding some civilization. Some say "The Road" is just another masterpiece to add to his list of fantastic works. I'm not familiar with all of McCarthy's works, but I can attest that it is an incredibly short list in existence, displaying books that leave you changed for weeks after reading the book. I spoke to many who were not necessarily bold readers and even felt a bit disturbed for a while after finishing the book. For those of us who are bold readers, this is intriguing.
