I recently finished reading "The Road" which is the most recent book by Cormac McCarthy, the guy who wrote "No Country For Old Men". I can kind of see why he’s the "it" writer at the moment. He writes in a kind of "arty" style that makes you feel like you’re reading something more sophisticated and high brow than the usual commercial paperback.
It’s the story of a man and his boy walking along the road in a post-apocalyptic future, and just trying to survive. It was okay. They’re making it into a movie with Viggo Mortensen. I’ll be curious to see how that turns out.
