The Road By: Cormac McCarthy

I really really wanted to like this book, but i found that i was dissapointed. After reading "No Country for Old Men", i had high expectations and i felt let down. I needed time after reading this to really think about how i wanted to rate it and what i wanted to say in the review. I honestly felt like it missed out on a lot of key elements for me, particurally the beginning and the ending i felt were really weak. What led to this whole postapocalyptic world and what caused humans to be dangerous and eat other human beings. Also the ending didn't satisfy what happened to the boy, his father passed away, but what the heck happened to him?? did he make it or didn't he? I just really thought this book would be more then it was, and left me dissapointed.

3 out of 5 stars


  1. I was excited for this book but my husband and I watched the movie and now I am not interested in the book either. I agree, it was sort of a let down without much explanation.

  2. i haven't seen the movie but have no real desire too, it was very disapointing to me, i liked no country for old men by him (book and movie) much better!!
