The Road...♥♥♥♥

The Road by Cormac McCarthy is quite an intense book actually! You really feel what the characters are going through and get very attached. This book was actually recommended for me to read by my really close friend. I would see her read this book and she could not be able to get unattached from the book. She would be left surprised , in shock and thoughtful when reading this book. She told me it was very good so I read it too and my reactions were the same as hers. The beginning didn't grab my attention at first but after a few more pages and almost halfway through is when it gets really good! Oh this book is also a major motion picture! I can't imagine how interesting the movie must be because the book is! These characters go through a very tough time , hiding from the bad people , starving and in need of food, cold and freezing themselves and in need of shelter and fire. The father does everything to protect his son from danger, he prefers to give his food & water to his son whenever he can and they try their hardest to survive. You can also get an idea how intense and sad this book is by the cover...Here's the trailer if you would like to take a peek, it gives me goosebumps just watching it.... Click HERE for Trailer


  1. I loved this book. It definitely is heavy. I found myself actually scared for the characters when I felt they were in danger. I love Cormac McCarthy and also read 'No Country For Old Men' which was also very well written. I thought they did a fabulous rendition of that book to a movie so it will be interesting to see how well the movie version of 'The Road' turns out.

  2. This sounds like a good book. I will try to read it as soon as I finish 'The Freedom Writers' and can move up on my book list.
