The Road

I read a lot of books. I truly enjoy just being in bed and reading. Last year, probably my favorite book was 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy. It is a fabulous simplistic disturbing book about a post apocalyptic world. It is the story of a dad and his boy out in the world trying to survive. Fabulous and difficult.

Well, they are coming out with the movie. I want to see it, but it is tough...the cast looks good. Anyway, here is the trailer for those interested. If you haven't read the book and the trailer looks good, go and get the book and read it before you see it:

Dorien--the book is intense and it is a difficult book...but it probably won't give you nightmares. How is that for hedging my bets?

It is written in a different style as well, but I think it is worth a read and it would not take long to finish it.
