The Road and The Beach Dec. 2009

Have you read this?

When it was given to me, my friend Gigi said "Read this."
"Read this now!"  "Everyone in the world should read this."
If only. . .

Cormac McCarthey is one of my all-time most favorite writers,
he knows how to break the rules and magnificently make it work!

This is a powerful book that will stay with you forever!

Not only that, it won a Pulitzer Prize!!!

If you need more coaxing,
go to Amazon and read the first page.

The Beach

I will be out-of-pocket for a few days,
visiting friends, eating shrimp and ceviche on the beach,
and having an all 'round good time at
Playa Melaque!

More to follow when I get back.


  1. Amazing, I just picked up a copy of "The Road" a couple of days ago because I also love McCarthy, even though sometimes his stories are unbelievably tragic. Now I feel like setting aside the two other books I'm reading and getting right into it.

  2. Steve - I'll look for you. I'll be riding with Sparky and staying with friends then Shoe.

    1st Mate - Ooh, read it. Tell me what you think of it. I couldn't put it down. I'm interested in what you think about the ending.

  3. Trailrunner,

    I stared it and had to put it down, it made me way too anxious. Paul read it though and loved it. Maybe I should pick it up again, I just don't do too well with really scary stuff.
