it was amazing

The Road makes the The Road Warrior look like The Little Mermaid in comparison. Absolutely the bleakest, most depressing bit of writing I've ever come across, and I mean that in a nice way. I like the fact that he never explains just what happened. His physical descriptions of simple actions are what I like most about McCarthy. I have to say that the story itself wasn't well executed. There really wasn't too much in the way of a plot.
