The Road - Cormac McCarthy

Let me start by saying...


I went into this book not really knowing what I was in for. I picked it because it fit in with a reading challenge I was doing.


The first thing to bother me was the really off-putting POV that the whole story was written in. I felt like a perverse stalker.


And let me tell you, things did not get better. There was pretty much no plot, no real characterisation, and nothing fundamentally exciting actually happened. Even when it got that that climax I felt nothing! Nothing for anyone.


Considering I normally have emotional reactions to books, this just went towards proving to me that this book did absolutely nothing for me.

My verdict:

But that's not enough...
