The Road by Cormac McCarthy-Corrimal Bookchat 1

Set in the dying days of the planet, with scorched earth, and most signs of life obliterated, a man and his young son trudge their journey. We hope the Road leads to deliverance, but that is for the reader to decide. We argued over details, and wondered how two relatively whole human beings could be left to share their way with such horribly damaged souls. We revelled in some lovely passages and poignant exchanges. One of us, (and she’s no wimp!), gave up. But most agreed that tho’ it was a very hard row to hoe, it was worth the journey.
