Re: AMF Book Club #1.5 - The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Finally finished The Road. After reading this I don't get the hype for this book at all. It would've been better if it was just a short story. The story really drags out with almost no substance. Just the same scenarios about searching for things over and over again.
