America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst the destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world that is utterly devastated.… (mais)

Beautiful and terrible. The best thing I've read this year. ( )
  ReaderWriterRunner | Jul 27, 2021 |
I own two McCarthy books, The Road and Blood Meridian. I decided that it was the right time to read one of them and I chose to go with The Road. I saw the movie when it first came out so I sort of knew what I was getting into before starting but I had heard a lot of good things about the book so I couldn't wait to get started.

The story is set in a post apocalyptic America which has been utterly destroyed. By what, we never find out but something massive has happened and our story focuses on a father and son making their way across the country. They rarely meet anyone along the way but those that they do meet are usually dangerous and only out for themselves. There is little in the way of character development and from memory we don't even learn the names of anyone. I found this a little hard to get on with but I assume this was done on purpose as it adds to the whole atmosphere of the book.

It's the atmosphere where the book really shines, everything feels gray, downbeat and oppressive. I rarely come across anything like this and it really stood out to me. I felt cold reading it and I could really picture what was happening to the characters. I did feel like a distant observer rather than in the thick of it though. The only other book ive read that had a similar feeling to me was Snow by Orhan Pamuk.

I found the storyline to be very slow moving, so much so that I found myself getting a little frustrated at times. I wouldn't say that I didn't enjoy the book but I don't think that it was my thing and that hurt my enjoyment of it. I can see why it is so popular and largely praised. ( )

Short, but with a lot of emotional impact and an interesting style. No quotation marks or usual dialogue decorations (She said, he exclaimed, etc...) makes dialogue staccato but forceful, which reinforces the stark setting and the utilitarian mindset of the characters. Very good. ( )

God damn. Here are the few things I can think to say about my experience, but everyone else details the book much better than I:

1) I often avoid books everyone I know LOVES as the hype ends up being insurmountable. This was not the case.

2) After enduring a shitstorm of a week, I was not emotionally ready to handle this book. Other books I've started to read when my personal life got in the way too much I've put down until I was ready later. The Road never gave me the option.

3) I found myself being grateful for the company of an infant for the first time ever when the moment came I finished this book.

4) I just can't put my finger on why the book moved me so. At first I thought the overuse of incomplete sentences and selective omission of apostrophes for only some contractions was going to drive me nuts. Not much action happens. And it all works. The understatement is soul-crushing. Again, refer to everyone else's reviews.

5) Just realized today that it's kinda funny I ended up reading this book right before Father's Day. And as happens with other books, I inadvertently coupled it with an appropriate but not quite appropriate song--this one got Life During Wartime. Sheesh. ( )

I'm a sucker for dystopian stories. I had a feeling the movie version wasn't going to be as dark as the book, but this made me appreciate how true to the book it was. ( )

But McCarthy’s latest effort, The Road, is a missed opportunity.
adicionado por eereed | editarThe New Criterion, Stefan Beck (Oct 3, 2011)
 
With only the corpse of a natural world to grapple with, McCarthy's father and son exist in a realm rarely seen in the ur-masculine literary tradition: the domestic. And from this unlikely vantage McCarthy makes a big, shockingly successful grab at the universal.
adicionado por eereed | editarSlate, Jennifer Egan (Oct 10, 2006)
 
“The Road” is a dynamic tale, offered in the often exalted prose that is McCarthy’s signature, but this time in restrained doses — short, vivid sentences, episodes only a few paragraphs or a few lines long, which is yet another departure for him.
 
Post-apocalyptic fiction isn't automatically better when written by Cormac McCarthy, but he does have a way of investing genre clichés with fine gray tones and morose poetry.
adicionado por eereed | editarA.V. Club, Noel Murray (Oct 5, 2006)
 
But even with its flaws, there's just no getting around it: The Road is a frightening, profound tale that drags us into places we don't want to go, forces us to think about questions we don't want to ask. Readers who sneer at McCarthy's mythic and biblical grandiosity will cringe at the ambition of The Road . At first I kept trying to scoff at it, too, but I was just whistling past the graveyard. Ultimately, my cynicism was overwhelmed by the visceral power of McCarthy's prose and the simple beauty of this hero's love for his son.

When he woke in the woods in the dark and the cold of the night he'd reach out to touch the child sleeping beside him.

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.
