I recently read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. My friend Margo sent it to me and once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. OK that's a bit of an exaggeration but I started on the 10th and finished on the 15th. 300 odd pages, bold lettering, easy reading, not much dialogue. It was beautiful yet dark and hopeless, primal and instinctual. What really hooked me was Mr. McCarthy's writing style and the way he created the setting in which the story took place.
