'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy is the most spellbinding andheartbreaking 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.
