the road

"There were times when he sat watching the boy sleep that he would begin to sob uncontrollably but it wasnt about death. He wasnt sure what it was about but he though it was about beauty or about goodness."

it's been a while since i have written about any books. i just had to quickly write up a post about cormac mccarthy's the road. the above quote from the book best describes the novel. it is one of the best stories i have read in years and is perhaps the most beautiful narrative ever written of the goodness and light that can exist in the darkest of times.
