The Road is the astonishing post-apocalyptic novel by Cormac McCarthy, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
A father and his young son walk alone through burned America, heading slowly for the coast. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. They have nothing but a pistol to defend themselves against the men who stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food - and each other.

Here's what you say about us...

Cormac McCarthy is the author of ten acclaimed novels, most recently The Road. Among his honours are the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for lifetime achievement in American literature.

The first great masterpiece of the globally warmed generation. Here is an American classic which, at a stroke, makes McCarthy a contender for the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Andrew O’Hagan

McCarthy conjures from this pitiless flight the miracle of unswerving humanity. Gripping beyond belief.
Sunday Telegraph - Chris Cleave

One of the most shocking and harrowing but ultimately redemptive books I have read. It is an intensely intimate story. It is also a warning.
Observer Books of the Year - Kirsty Wark

So good that it will devour you. It is incandescent.
Daily Telegraph

You will read on, absolutely convinced, thrilled, mesmerized. All the modern novel can do is done here.
Guardian - Alan Warner

A masterpiece that will soon be considered a classic.
