It's been sitting on my shelf since 2006. It's now a major motion picture. But I've finally started reading Cormac McCarthy's The Road. And I'm loving it.
It's exciting, dark, suspenseful, and subtly gruesome.
But what made me first get into it was his writing style. McCarthy follows his own rules. If he had turned this book in to my 7th grade English teacher, it would have come back covered in red ink.
Take this randomly selected paragraph for example.
