Description

Un padre y su hijo caminan solos por una América devastada. Nada se mueve en el paisaje quemado salvo cenizas en el viento. El cielo es oscuro, la nieve gris, y el frío es capaz de romper las rocas. Su destino es la costa, aunque no saben qué, si algo, les espera allí. No tienen nada; sólo una pistola para defenderse contra las bandas que acechan la carretera, las ropas que llevan puestas, un carrito con comida, y el uno al otro.La carretera es la historia profundamente conmovedora de un viaje. Un libro que atrevidamente imagina un futuro en el que no queda esperanza, pero en el que un padre y un hijo que sólo se tienen a sí mismos, sobreviven por amor.

Publishers Weekly Review

Nov 10, 2008 – McCarthy here offers a prescient account of a man and his son trying to survive in a devastated country where food is scarce and everyone has become a scavenger. The term "survival of the fittest" rings true here-very few people remain, and friends are extinct. Essentially, this is a story about nature vs. nurture, commitment and promises, and though there aren't many characters, there is abundant life in the prose. We are reminded how McCarthy has mastered the world outside of our domestic and social circles, with each description reading as if he had pulled a scene from the landscape and pasted it in the book. He uses metaphors the way some writers use punctuation, sprinkling them about with an artist's eye, showing us that literature from the heart still exists.
