Highlights the book's theme
Would I recomend this book?
"Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Road, is a brilliant evocation of what the world might be like in the times after civilization ends. Unlike most post-apocalyptic literature, which tends toward unlikely, cookie-cutter fantasies, The Road gives us a bare, impossibly brutal world that feels true." -Review by The Quarterly Conversation.

I would recomend this book to people that like
the Walking Dead
because this has a good resemblence to that show.
Shows the developement of how reality would be like if an apocalypse occurs

The Road and surrounding is grey.
South, to the coast.
"The Road from his other works is McCarthy’s ability to capture moments of lyrical and emotional beauty in a father and son’s haunted relationship even as a silent cloud of death covers the world in darkness." -BestSeller Review
This impacted the world by being one of the earlier books to describe the future in shambles.
