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)

New review/thoughts from my April 2024 read: https://tbindc.substack.com/p/the-road

Below - review from July 5th, 2023.

The Road is a stunning book. It is dark, cold, and in many ways horrible. The love of the father for the son does radiate through it and ruptures off of the page. The most anxiety-inducing and bone-chilling questions imaginable by a parent are raised directly ("Can you do it? When the time comes? Can you?") and indirectly.

The vignettes of interaction with other human show the frailty of life without our social contract and suggests how fragile it is. To me, it also suggests its durability over generations, with the child's internal sense of morality so strong - even buoying the father at times.

I'll have a lot more to say about sons and fathers and how this book reads when your own father has paled in comparison to this one in my substack. That said, fatherhood both practically and somewhat cosmically are major themes. Closing with two of my favorite quotes/sections from this readthrough:

"Do you think that your fathers are watching? That they weigh you in their ledgerbook? Against what? There is no book and your fathers are dead in the ground." (pg 196)

"He rose and build back the fire and sat beside the boy and pulled the blankets over him and brushed back his filthy hair. I think maybe they are watching, he said. They are watching for a thing that even death cannot undo and if they do not see it they will turn away from us and they will not come back." (pg 210).

More soon. ( )

I found the portrayal of a truly miserable dystopia quite compelling. However, the book is very light on story, without giving too much away, they get hungry, they find some food, they hide from someone on the road, repeat 3 or 4 times . The story only moves on right at the very end, literally the last page and it's predictable. Interaction between the man and boy is trying and repetitive and McCarthy's writing style for the dialogue is weird. Luckily the book is fairly short. ( )

An excellent post-apocalypse novel about a man and his son traveling on foot across a country (probably the USA) trying to survive. We never know what happened to kill off everyone and everything, but can assume it was probably a nuclear holocaust, due to the ash everywhere and the description towards the end of the buildings in a city standing at angles due to the metal melting. An excellent story and a very fast read. ( )

My favorite aspect of the Road as audiobook was the emotional aspect. You know the father feels like he needs to protect his son at all costs, and this little boy who still has an adorable amount of hope and innocence in him that is not stifled by the brutality of the world they now face. This narrator was able to portray the two characters' unmitigated hope and fear in a way that was heart breaking and profoundly deeply personal. And reflective..............

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.
