The Road by Cormac McCarthy - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Road:

A walk after the apocalypse.

My favorite Cormac McCarthy quote from the book:

"This is what the good guys do. They keep trying. They don't give up."

Questions to ponder while reading The Road:

How long would it take before we stopped acting humanely?

Would you try?

My review of The Road:

A punch in the gut.

I am going out in the beginning.

Would it really last that long?
