Okay, I finally got my husband to write down his thoughts on The Road. We didn’t see eye to eye on this one, but it did make for a good discussion.
The Road is the story of a father and son’s survival after a catastrophic event which has left the Earth a barren wasteland. The father and son are continually looking for food and journeying further south to find a warmer climate before winter sets in. The father and son do encounter other survivors on the road as well.
The author does not give any details on how the earth got this way or even reveal the main characters names which I thought was interesting.
I didn’t realize the emotional depth of the novel until a few days after finishing the book. The author covers the themes of the love between parent and child, hope, personal sacrifice, and faith.
The Road is one of the more memorable books that I have read in the last few years. I would cetainly reccommend this to others.
