really liked it

Recommended for: almost everyone.

Although, I received mixed reviews from people who had either read or heard about The Road, I decided to check it out anyway. I found that it started a bit slow, but was interesting from the first page as far as the plot.

I found that after the first few pages, I was hooked and the story was a pleasure to read.

For those hopeless romantics and those seeking the ultimate in happy endings, this novel is probably not for you. Depression and disappointment appear on nearly every page. In all honesty, isn't that more likely than action and excitement in a post-apocalyptic scenario?

Regardless, this is a great read. I recommend it to anyone who won't struggle with the lack of happiness in this novel.
