We’ve seen several movies in the cinemas recently that deal with apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic scenarios. Aside from 2012 (with John Cusack), we’ve seen The Road (with Viggo Mortensen from Lord of The Rings) and now Book of Eli (with Denzel Washington).
The Road is based on the book by Cormac McCarthy, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2007.
About the book The Road
This is new territory for author Cormac McCarthy: a post apocalyptic landscape where readers meet a man who recalls a better world and a boy who doesn’t. With all the trademarks of vintage McCarthy—a man and his young son, a blasted American landscape, sparse prose that is at once brutal and tender—The Road further cements McCarthy’s stature as one of America’s greatest living novelists.
The Road is set in a post-apocalyptic blight of gray skies that drizzle ash, a world in which all matter of wildlife is extinct, starvation is not only prevalent but nearly all-encompassing, and marauding bands of cannibals roam the environment with pieces of human flesh stuck between their teeth. Sound interesting?
McCarthy is probably best known for his novel No Country for Old Men, which was also made into a movie.
