ABOUT THIS BOOK Set in the smoking ashes of a postapocalyptic America, Cormac McCarthy's The Road tells the story of a man and his son's journey toward the sea and an uncertain salvation. The world they pass through is a ghastly vision of scorched countryside and blasted cities "held by cores of blackened looters who tunneled. 'One for the road' sounds as though it might be a 'ye olde' expression used by medieval travellers when leaving an inn or by a Dickensian character taking a swig of grog before disappearing into a London fog. There is a suggestion that this phrase derives from the supposed practice of offering condemned felons a final drink at pubs on the way.

    'One More For the Road': *** a would-be author thinks he has an idea for the perfect book. How does that work out for him and his publisher? 'Time Intervening': **** an old man, a boy, a young man, and some little children keep meeting. 'The Enemy in the Wheat': /5(8). They have no real way of knowing where they are, but the boy recognizes the man’s tendency to be over-optimistic in his presence. The cooking infant is perhaps the most horrifying image of the book. These travelers did not seem to be the violent kind of “bad guys,” but they have still sacrificed all humanity and decency for survival’s sake.

It took me a long time to get through The Road, a post-apocalyptic journey of a father and son pushing a shopping cart south, through the .hill where the road crested and where they could see out over the darkening country to the south, standing there in the wind, wrapped in their blankets, watching for any sign of a fire or a lamp.

Everything.
