The best book I have read in....ages

'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy is the most spellbinding and heartbreaking book I have read in years. It's about a father and his young son travelling across America in a post apocalyptic world, where most of the population are dead and the sun never shines through the ashen polluted atmosphere. It sounds sensationalist but it's so gripping because the two central characters are so real. I fell in love with the wee boy.

I have to go now. Nice Man is cajoling me to watch some TV, now that Hughster is asleep.

I've been meaning to read The Road for ages...I'll have to make space for it on my very long Want To Read list!

Thanks for the recommendation -
