The Road

March 5, 2008

This book has a tale of it’s own for me.  Albeit not a very interesting one, but I’m going to lay it down for you anyways.

I have owned it for a while without ever getting round to reading it.  In fact I even loaned it to my mother who read it, though I can’t for the life of me remember what she thought of it.  I recently saw the superb film, ‘No Country For Old Men’, and realised that the author of the book, Cormac McCarthy, that film is based on…. yes, I think you get where I’m going.  So this received a boost up my ‘to read’ list.  And thus, I am reading it now.  And very good it is too.

I am hoping to get The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx as well as The Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peak tomorrow.  The latter prompted by an excellent program on BBC 4 about fantasy.
