Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD Makes It to the Movies

Posted by webmaster
Opening today in theaters is the movie version of Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road, the story of a father and son trying to survive in a world devastated by a nuclear holocaust. Are you planning to see it on your own or with your book club? Tell us about it in the comments section. reviewer Tom Callahan had this to say about the book: "McCarthy illuminates the ultimate nightmare that has haunted mankind since August 1945. This is a dystopian look at America, or what would be left of America, after a nuclear war. This is a book that stares, unblinking, straight into the abyss. It is a masterpiece. The Road might be one of the most powerful anti-war novels ever written."
