The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Father and son on a boring journey of survival. Boring. Got nothing out of it. 3 days of wasted time. Too much repetition throughout. Couldn't feel the proximity of the father-son relationship. Conversations were boring too.

Love the font type though. What put me off really, was the non existent quotation marks, the pages that went on and on without chapters (almost sounded like the story teller was rambling to himself and caught in his own world), and some weird combination of words (2 words made into 1).

This is by far, the only book which I didn't enjoy reading. Sorry McCarthy. I just couldn't and didn't get it.

My ratings? 1 out of 5 stars
