The Road is a post-apocalyptic novel by American writer Cormac book details the journey of a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unspecified cataclysm that has destroyed most of civilization and, in Author: Cormac McCarthy.   Characters in On the Road smoke cigarettes and pot, and take Benzedrine; one section, a couple of characters use heroin, and the book describes them shooting up and their demeanor before and after their fix. Most characters also drink alcohol to excess (beer, port, many unspecified "drinks").5/5.

One of my favorite books in my early teens was The Giver by Lois Lowry. I even found a signed copy at a recycled book store for $ and it has held a place of honor on my bookshelf. I recently re-read it for the first time since I was a teenager, and I cant help but feel a little uncomfortable. It is far more disturbing than I remember. On the Road by Jack Kerouac is the exhilarating novel that defined the Beat Generation and is a major motion picture starring Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Sam Riley, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range.

  The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Roadis the profoundly moving story of a journey. It /5().   It's the ultimate pairing: Cormac McCarthy plus the apocalypse. As an author who has delivered some of the darkest moments in modern fiction via books like Blood Meridian and Child of God, McCarthy seems uniquely suited to an exploration of what the world might be like at its The Road, he has developed this nightmarish scenario into an affecting and compassionate novel, as an .

One for the Road: Revised Edition Paperback – October 5, by Tony Horwitz (Author)/5(56). `Two for the Road' is an interesting book because it not only condenses the experiences they have had on the road, but also provides the reader with a huge amount of information about the history and customs of small-town America/5(30).

Barron Lerner's book "One for the Road" is a study of the politics, legal policies and procedures of dealing with intoxicated automobile drivers. To my knowledge it is the first academic study dedicated to analyzing the real cost-to the intoxicated driver, to society, and to the victims-of drinking and by:   One marginally effective way to get across it is by hitchhiking.

But hitchhiking is never just hitchhiking, a theory solidly proven by Tony Horwitz in his book One for the Road. Early in this travel narrative, he notes that hitchhiking east to west across Australia is the countrys answer to Route 66 and the Appalachians/5. Two for the Road book.

The novel begins with the man and boy in the woods, the boy asleep, as the two of them are making their journey along the road Read more at.

The Road is a magnificent book. The bond between the man and his boy is at once wholly remarkable and yet also unremarkable, because it is what nature intended. Their unconditional love for each other, the man’s sacrifices for and loyalty to his son, and the boy’s unshakeable trust in his father are as humanly humbling as they are beautiful.

The Only Road casts clear light on the desperate road to freedom for children trapped in the horrors of gang violence in Central America.

Alexandra Diaz is an Americas Award Winner, and her book won the Pura Belpre HonorKate Calina/5(52). The Road is a brutally astonishing work.

I very much enjoyed [and appreciated] the `new arrivals' need to reconnect with their countrymen. The characters resonate and the book has a strong, rich theme. The one caveat this reader has is how Tremain chose her ending. However, some readers may rejoice in by: A roadbook is a diagrammatic book typically used by rally co-drivers and overland travelers to navigate across uncertain terrain.

Usually, the roadbook consists of several pages of tulip-diagrams [clarification needed], GPS co-ordinates and written instructions to assist in navigation.

In rally sport, the term pacenotes is more usual. Shorn of history and context, Cormac McCarthy's other nine novels could be cast as rungs, with The Road as a pinnacle.

This is a very great novel, but one. The Only Road written by Alexandra Diaz was a book I knew I had to include in my collection of WOW books after reading. It's no wonder that this book has received countless awards. Ideally, I would have this book in a fifth-grade class/5.

The Road Summary. The Road opens after some unknown apocalyptic event has struck. The first few pages of the novel situate us in the landscape: ash, isolation, and a long road to travel. You could say the novel alternates between two settings: the road and excursions away from the road into houses or other possible food mother lodes.

In On the Road he actually muses about how much he wishes that he could have been born "a Negro in the antebellum South," living a simple life free from worry, and does so seemingly without any sense of irony.

On every page, the book is about how Kerouac (a young, white, middle-class, solipsistic alcoholic) feels, and nothing more/5(K).Janet Evanovich (b.
