In this postapocalyptic novel, a father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. They sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other. This book boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. It is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.--From publisher description.… (mais)

Father and son struggle to survive after some event has destroyed earth as we know it. A book of relationship. Very good.
  bentstoker | Jan 26, 2024 |
(2007)A father & son try to find livable conditions in a post apocalyptic world that they don't totally understand or is explained. Very good quick read. Cormac McCarthy sets his new novel, The Road, in a post-apocalyptic blight of gray skies that drizzle ash, a world in which all matter of wildlife is extinct, starvation is not only prevalent but nearly all-encompassing, and marauding bands of cannibals roam the environment with pieces of human flesh stuck between their teeth. If this sounds oppressive and dispiriting, it is. McCarthy may have just set to paper the definitive vision of the world after nuclear war, and in this recent age of relentless saber-rattling by the global powers, it's not much of a leap to feel his vision could be not far off the mark nor, sadly, right around the corner. Stealing across this horrific (and that's the only word for it) landscape are an unnamed man and his emaciated son, a boy probably around the age of ten. It is the love the father feels for his son, a love as deep and acute as his grief, that could surprise readers of McCarthy's previous work. McCarthy's Gnostic impressions of mankind have left very little place for love. In fact that greatest love affair in any of his novels, I would argue, occurs between the Billy Parham and the wolf in The Crossing. But here the love of a desperate father for his sickly son transcends all else. McCarthy has always written about the battle between light and darkness; the darkness usually comprises 99.9% of the world, while any illumination is the weak shaft thrown by a penlight running low on batteries. In The Road, those batteries are almost out--the entire world is, quite literally, dying--so the final affirmation of hope in the novel's closing pages is all the more shocking and maybe all the more enduring as the boy takes all of his father's (and McCarthy's) rage at the hopeless folly of man and lays it down, lifting up, in its place, the oddest of all things: faith. --Dennis Lehane

So much of nothing happens in this book. There's no character development, and precious little character exposition. The situation (whole world, including plants and animals, is dying) is given no explanation and precious little coherent thought. (Why are humans still able to have babies if animals aren't? ) I kept reading/listening to this thing hoping something would eventually happen. I was thoroughly disappointed. ( )

Beautifully written, but simply not enough story. Probably better than the film, though altogether similar. Will not revisit McCarthy again. ( )
  MXMLLN | Jan 12, 2024 |
Love how he uses a simplification of language and punctuation to reinforce the erosion of the world in the story. Minimalistic yet very rich, with a story arc that is almost invisible until towards the brilliant end. Masterful pacing, and great use of a lack of chapter divisions. ( )

Délaissant les paysages arides de l'Ouest américain, Cormac McCarthy imagine une planète ravagée par une apocalypse nucléaire, un monde d'une radicale hostilité où un homme et son fils tentent de survivre envers et contre tout.

But McCarthy’s latest effort, The Road, is a missed opportunity.
adicionado por vibesandall | editarThe New Criterion, Stefan Beck (Oct 3, 2011)
 
Nicht minder bedeutend und nicht minder nobelpreiswürdig als die immer noch berühmteren, aber ebenso nobelpreislosen amerikanischen Kollegen Philip Roth und John Updike ist für Hubert Spiegel der Literat Cormac McCarthy. Dies Buch ist hierzulande, wohl der Verfilmung wegen im Deutschen erst jetzt erschienen, fast zeitgleich mit dem ihm im Original erst ein Jahr später folgenden "Die Straße". Spiegel bespricht sie in einer Kritik und betont, dass nur eines von beiden, nämlich dies hier ein wirkliches "Meisterwerk" ist, womöglich sogar McCarthys stärkstes Buch. Das Szenario ist postapokalyptisch. Spiegel: "Die Welt ist verbrannt, verkohlt, entseelt." Ein paar marodierende Menschen sind übrig, nicht einmal vor Kannibalismus schrecken sie zurück. Im Zentrum stehen, namenlos unterwegs, Vater und Sohn. Sie diskutieren moralische und metaphysische Fragen und wollen zum Meer. Eine totale Reduktion aufs Grundsätzliche, die der Rezensent Hubert Spiegel in diesem Fall mit Enthusiasmus quittiert .

Alex Rühle gibt sich als langjähriger Cormac-McCarthy-Bewunderer zu erkennen, findet es aber dann doch ärgerlich, dass der amerikanische Autor ausgerechnet für "Die Straße" nun den Pulitzer-Preis erhalten hat, wo er doch schon so viel Besseres geschrieben habe. Immerhin erweist sich der Autor auch bei der völlig verwüsteten, verkohlten Landschaft, durch die ein Vater und sein Sohn nach einem nicht näher beschriebenen Krieg irren, noch als virtuoser Beschwörer der - in diesem Fall zerstörten - Natur, so der Rezensent bewundernd. Allerdings findet er den alles durchziehenden Ernst und die stets auf existentiellem Niveau schwingenden Dialoge auf die Dauer ziemlich anstrengend. Im Roman geht es stets ums nackte Überleben und um die Frage, angesichts der Katastrophe noch moralisch integer zu bleiben, meint Rühle, der einen kleinen Scherz hin und wieder zu schätzen gewusst hätte. Die Versatzstücke aus dem Horrorgenre kratzen zudem am Niveau des Romans, und am Ende hat der Rezensent gar den Eindruck, bei einem Hollywoodschinken a la "Conan, der Barbar" gelandet zu sein.

Für Angela Schader spaltet sich das Werk von Cormac McCarthy in den Insidertipp und den Bestseller, und sie macht deutlich, wo ihre Sympathien liegen. "Die Straße" bedient ihrer Einschätzung nach wieder das breite Publikum, was ihr Missfallen erregt. Vater und Sohn sind seit Jahren auf dem Weg durch eine völlig zerstörte Welt an die Küste, wo sie sich ein leichteres Leben und vor allem Sicherheit vor der allgegenwärtigen Gefahr, Kannibalen anheim zu fallen, erhoffen. Für die Rezensentin operiert der Roman mit einer allzu eindeutigen Moral, Gut und Böse seien zu eindimensional zugeordnet. Auch wenn, wie Schader einräumt, das Buch insbesondere in seinen endzeitlichen Szenarien sehr fesselnd ist, findet sie, dass es gerade durch seine Konzentration auf die Beziehung zwischen Vater und Sohn und wegen des abenteuerlichen Settings über Jugendbuch-Niveau kaum hinausgeht. Auch das etwas gezwungenen Happy End, das die Rezensentin fairer Weise nicht verrät, scheint ihr als Schwäche und so ist sie von dem Roman, der wie sie findet der Konstruktion nach einiges zu versprechen schien, ziemlich enttäuscht.

He'd not have thought the value of the smallest thing predicated on a world to come. It surprised him. That the space which these things occupied was itself an expectation (149).
From daydreams on the road there was no waking. He plodded on. He could remember everything of her save her scent. Seated in a theatre with her beside him leaning forward listening to the music. Gold scrollwork and sconces and the tall columnar folds of the drapes at either side of the stage. She held his hand in her lap and he could feel the tops of her stockings through the thin stuff of her summer dress. Freeze this frame. Now call down your dark and your cold and be damned.
He pulled the boy closer. Just remember that the things you put into your head are there forever, he said. You might want to think about that.

You forget some things, don't you?

Yes. You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget.
It took two days to cross that ashen scabland. The road beyond fell away on every side. It's snowing, the boy said. He looked at the sky. A single gray flake sifting down. He caught it in his hand and watched it expire there like the last host of christendom.
He thought if he lived long enough the world at last would be lost. Like the dying world the newly blind inhabit, all of it slowly fading from memory.
