"very dark but very beautiful "
really enjoyed this. when you think about the story it's very simple but the way the descriptions and emotions are wrote grip you all the way through. it's an extremely beautiful story of a father and son and the narrator depicts each of them in a way that makes you feel the emotion between them. would recommend.
"A bitterly bleak masterpiece"
Hopelessness and a rich yet desolate landscape are captured magnificently with deft, clipped prose. The narration is sublime and charged with a grizzled, gritty tone that compliments the story perfectly.
Recommend for A levels curriculum. Brings the story to life, well read like the gruffness of the man.
Dark and depressing, I was recommended this story and it just didn't do it for me. It feels like the most used words in the boom are ash and scared.
Very well written. Great performance. Thoroughly recommend this. I was gripped from word one to the end.
"Brutal but brilliant"
This is a fantastic book. Brutal and sparse with barely a drop of hope. Great narration too.
Sparse but powerful prose, littered with deep insights. Loved it. It often reminded me of the way Hemmingway wrote. definitely planning to check out some more of his work.
"Well written, well read, but well sad!"
It was a short and quite simple story, but the themes are really human and quite deep.
The characters are few and far between, but you do get a growing sense of who the man and boy are as the story progresses, which is what I liked best.
Yes, his performance on 'No Country For Old Men' was fantastic.
I tend to listen on my commute, so no, not really. However it is short enough to get through in one day if you wanted to.
Although this story has stayed with me and I think about it often, I sometimes wonder if I would say I 'enjoyed' it because I found it SO SAD! Fathers with young sons beware! But it really is well written and a good story. I didn't think it was as good as 'No Country For Old Men' though.
"Heart warming and breathtaking experience."
It changes you perception of life to the point where you feel as if in a way it has impacted your own luxurious life that we live into toady.an amazing book by far proceeded my expectations.
"Great post apocolypse read"
It did what I expected of it
Well described and compelling
He had the required level of somberness
I was moved throughout
