something from the sketchbook:

i finished THE ROAD yesterday and it was good but it also took me some time to get into it.
from the wiki entry:

"It is a post-apocalyptic tale describing a journey taken by a father and his young son over a period of several months across a landscape blasted years before by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed civilization and, seemingly, most life on earth."

Its hard to write something about this book. There is not much dialog, not much "action".
But it conveys something real between the main protagonists and you really get a glimpse of the shattering loneliness they both endure.
Its also going to be a movie and i´m looking forward to seeing it being translated to the big screen.
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN turned out great, this could be just as good.
