God damn Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" is something. Usually the first word that comes to mind when I want to praise the quality of an author's writing is "beautiful", but that's the wrong word for this book. Nor is it ugly. It's only lethally sharp, and poisoned, and aimed at your gut.

It's a good book. You should read it.
