Extremely true to its title, “The Road” is the story of a father and son walking along a road to the coast in search of a better life after an apocalypse. And no surprise, this book is bleak. Very bleak. It’s also incredible, capturing the true force of human will and the sustaining need to hope. McCarthy’s writing, with its economy of language, is masterful and beautiful. I couldn’t put this book down, which meant that against my usual better judgement, I had to finish it on the subway. And I didn’t care that I got odd looks for my tears.
