The Road

Started listening to The Road. It’s an audiobook.

Written by Cormac McCarthy. He wrote a book that was made into a great film. No Country for Old Men. It is dark. The Road is really dark.

Sometimes, you read a book or watch a film that takes place in apocalyptic times, but somehow everything turns out alright in the end – the guy gets the girl, mankind is saved, there are tears and kisses and the rebellion won.

I haven’t finished The Road yet. Can’t see it ending well.

It is really, really captivating. There is something about it that just rings true. What would the apocalypse be like? What would happen if civilization ended?

I’m pretty sure mankind would not be saved.

It’s OK.
