Just finished reading the road.. Good book, it's a fast read , however a dark and heavy read, I enjoyed it. The relationship between father and son is touching and it does make you contemplate intensely.
I look forward to seeing the movie when it comes out on DVD Viggo Mortensen plays the father. As I read the book I could hear Viggo talking as the father.
I think most of you will like it also.

I'm a big fan of post apocalyptic fiction and I loved "The Road." The only down side to it is that it is so depressing you almost catch yourself tie a noose while reading it. It probably won't make the Oprah book club.
