Road

(Pocket)

Beskrivelse:

A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged, nuclear landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is grey. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food - and each other. "The Road" is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, 'each other's world entire', are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

    McCarthys prosa är lyrik och en stark kontrast mot det döda, skugglandskapet som utgör fonden i denna roman. Historien greppar dig och släpper dig inte i första taget. Även om romanen på ytan kan verka som en djupdykning ner i svart hopplöshet där det enda som betyder något är att överleva en dag till, skimrar hoppet för mänskligheten fram i relationen mellan far och son på Vägen.
