Devastating or Is It Just Me?

Is Cormac McCarthy's novel 'The Road' a most devastating read or is it just me?

That is the question.

Of course it's not just me.

It's a brilliant brilliant book. Even on the most basic level of a survival and horror story, it's gripping and totally memorable.

But it pretty much shook me to the core.

I think this is becuase I must be roughly the same age as the man in the book and one of my sons must be roughly the same age as the boy. I identified with it all far too much for my own good, I think.

That song by Aslan 'How can I protect you in this crazy world' kept coming to mind...

Anyway, I commend this book onto you, dear Blog-Surfer, I really do.
