RECENTLY READ: The Road

The Road - Cormac McCarthy

This is one of those books that everyone talks about and I push off reading until it seems like everyone's forgotten about it. 

At first, I wondered what exactly I was reading. I had heard it was a great book and it seemed to move slowly and like walking into a dark room, it took a while to adjust to my surroundings. Who are these people? What is happening? Where are they going?

Eventually, I started to feel for the two main characters in the novel - the child and the man. Their relationship strains on my heart. I'm not a mother, but I feel like I would do the same for anyone in my family.

The book left me with a lot of questions. My head is still swimming with them.

4 out of 5 stars. A book that leaves me feeling the way that The Road did is a good book. 

Goal #3 - 23 for 23 - 16/50

No. I haven't heard good things about it and I'm the worst at watching movies - 10 minutes in and I'm usually asleep.
