'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy

"[Cormac McCarthy's] past works have made me flinch, wonder, shudder, and think. This one is no exeption. The Road also moved me deeply. Could be his best book. What a vision of an entirely possible human experience, written in bleak and beautiful prose."

From Jorey, who listens to KUAR in Little Rock, Ark.
