The Road, written by Cormac McCarthy, is set in a war torn, futuristic American society. This adventure story is about a man and his son traversing a long and dangerous path across a wartorn America.
In their travels across America, the man and his son face many conflicts- internal and external. For example, they encounter many bands of traveling violent nomads. They also have fears that they may starve, freeze, or die due to natural conditions. With only a pistol to defend themselves, they must trust nobody but themselves as they embark on their journey.
I would give The Road the highest rating possible. I personally enjoyed reading this book, and I would recommend it to mature readers who enjoy adventure novels.
