I decided to start posting book reviews. I've been posting them on [info]wales_tooth and I will continue to post there (sorry to those of you who'll get them twice) but I want to keep this in my journal as well.

If you want to see other reviews, feel free to friend me or visit me in my goodreads page

The Road The Road by Cormac McCarthy

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
It took me a little while to get into the flow of this book. I think my mistake was reading it after Stephen King's "The Stand". It was really just a coincidence since I started reading both book without knowing what they were about but of course, I couldn't help by making comparisons between the two.

In the end, though, I managed to get into the world of The Road. I started appreciating the things that bothered me at first (mostly the lack of proper names) and quite enjoyed the tale. It's one of those books that leaves much unsaid. A lot os implied and I both love and hate that narrative style. All in all is a very good read, chilling at times and thought provoking.
