I'm a terrible person because I didn't really like The Road and I'm not sure how I feel about Cormac McCarthy Honestly I think there's something wrong with me I just finished reading The Road today it only took a couple of hours to get through because it's not that long a book and I think it was a good way to read it because I felt really immersed in the story which is told like one long run on nightmare of poetic import The characters don't get uotation marks when they speak and for some reason McCarthy also does away with the apostrophes in words like couldn't and shouldn't I'm still not really sure why that was necessary it seemed a little unjustified The story is set in a post apocalyptic world but the apocalypse itself is never really described or explained I still don't really know why the world is the way it is as the story begins other than that everything suddenly started burning and there are few survivors What survivors remain are generally split into good guys and bad guys the good guys are just trying to get by and the bad guys usually kill and eat people and steal their things A man and his boy are walking south yet we never really know why to get to what Even the man whose plan this is never explains the rationale than once when he thinks that it will be warmer there We're meant to think that they're in America I think only there's little indicators of an American world or otherwise At one point near the end of the book most of the artifacts they find are written in Spanish which led me to think they had made it to Mexico possibly but it still snows there I think which would be unusual In other words there are few concrete details and a lot of small conversations between the man and the boy the man usually says we have to keep going or we have to stay and the boy says i'm scared or don't leave me and the man says Don't be scared or Okay That was probably my biggest frustration with the book the mundane repetitiveness of the dialogue While many will argue that that criticism is exactly what the author intended along with the amorphous location and lack of details in order to bring about the black ethos of the novel's post apocalypse I just felt like it made for an uninteresting read The language is definitely poetic and it's peppered with abstract observations about the world or life or death but I wasn't very moved by them or the story I didn't feel like I got to know the characters any better as the story went along they remained distant to me emotionally endless travelers that I could empathize with as you would empathize with any soul wandering a post apocalyptic desert but I didn't really feel close to anything that happened because the narrative's disjointed and abstract tone just pushed me away as much as it made me reflect on apocalypse I read José Saramago's novel Blindness a year or two ago and to be honest felt that it dealt with mass epidemic of an apocalyptic nature in a much convincing original and powerful way It contains language of stunning beauty dialogue that lacks distinction and punctuation and dire situations but the characters are infinitely real compelling and the situations far disturbing What McCarthy only hints at Saramago dares to depict throughout BlindnessSo like I said I'm sure I'm a terrible person and there's just something that I'm not getting but I was really disappointed by The Road and generally find McCarthy and unenjoyable read
