I know this is a tough listen. It gets right to the grittiest part of humanity, survival. There are so many things that stick with me as I finish this book. It is worth every minute. Cormac McCarthy is a masterful writer.
I've read the book & loved it. And love this audio version just as much. It was wonderful the second time to see/find even more in Cormac McCarthy's wonderful book. The narration is excellent & brings the story to life. (Story- such a lame word for a book that touches one's soul.)
This is a very bleak and depressing story of the relationship between a father and son in a post-apocalytptic world. At first I found it difficult to get into, but after a while I became quite engrossed. A beautifully written and narrated work.
I listened to this book after seeing the movie. The book is much better and explains interesting details more than the movie does, even though I really liked the movie. Great narration and a lovingly told story. I do wish it was longer or that there is going to be a sequel or pre-quel of some kind. The whole concept is easy to get caught up in... what would you save, what would you do....
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Cormac McCarthy is one of the great writers of the 20th Century. A beautiful written book. The movie does it justice and Tom Stechschulte is perfect reading this book. Makes you think how fragile our civilisation is.
This novel squeezes meaning and value out of the crevices of this father-son relationship in the face of well told horrors of the apocalyptic end of the world.
Had never heard of the novel, knew about the movie finally watched and was impressed enough to grabb the audio book novel, sometimes i dont know what is better the novel or the movie,?.
I cannot imagine a better way of 'enjoying' this novel. While I appreciated it, the movie did not do this work the justice this reader did this piece. McCarthy is incredible. The perfect combination. While I did not read the text I will be forever pleased I listened to this book. Thank you to Tom Stechschulte for translating this unspeakably bleak scenario into one of love and hope transcending words. Hmmm - How about reading "Child of God" next? Please?
