For fans of apocolyptic novels, this is a new one out and a little different. It almost reads like poetry, but still tells a story. It's about a man and his son following a road south after a nuclear holocaust. There are no quotation marks for the dialogue which adds to the overall effectiveness of the book. It's not very long, but every page should be savored and thought about.

I've just started it, but it's a different kind of book for me.

Cormac Mccarthy kicks ass. Probably one of the greatest living writers. If you like The Road check out No Country For Old Men by the same guy. The Coen brothers are making a movie based on it. It's about a hunter who stumbles across a couple million dollars at the site of a drug deal gone bad and ends up running for his life from one of the most badass villians in recent memory. The plot is kind of standard but, like you mentioned earier, the writing is poetic. There is some pretty kickass action too.

Damn it's something else. Very dry and emotional at the same time.

I'm surprised more of you haven't checked this one out.

What about you Johnny ?
