  • Description

    The Road is a post-apocalyptic story of a father and his young son as they try to survive and make their way through a world destroyed by an unnamed catastrophe.

    Summary of the Book

    In the months that followed the apocalypse, a father takes his young son south, through empty roads to try and find a way to survive. Their meagre possessions are in the knapsacks and the supermarket cart they take with them. The father fears that they will fall into the hands of cannibals, for most of the survivors have resorted to the barbaric act because of hunger. The land is covered with ash and has no living animals or plants. They carry a pistol with 2 bullets, and the father instructs the son to use it on himself if he falls into the hands of cannibals. They follow the road, not knowing where it leads and not knowing if they are truly alone.
