    The Road -- just got it. It's different...but put it this way, I've barely put it down to get a drink and now to check my emails. Its really a wild ride as far as writing style. Hard to explain, but the imagery is huge, the grammar...uh, let's just say if you're a stickler for grammar and don't allow artistry with words/rules, you will be annoyed, maybe. lol

    great book so far. Not heard of the movie until I looked it up.

    I read the book and found the story to be rather depressing and somewhat hackneyed as there are common threads already explored in the multitude of post apocalypse stories.
