The Road by Cormac McCarthy

After dipping in and out of various autobiographies, long magazine articles and bits of newspaper, sitting down in one sitting to devour this book was a massive shock. A gripping apocalyptic tale, focused on just two characters - a father and a son - but covering an enormous range of profound questions: good and evil; unquestioning love; our environmental stewardship of earth; and the existence of God. A truly amazing and mesmerising book. 10/10
