Just Finished "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy  

Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" is a beautifully written story; very moving and sad. The vivid imagery will stay with me for a very long time.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Road

The Road is a 2006 novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocalyptic tale of a journey taken by a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed all civilization and, apparently, most life on earth. The novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.

I *love* that book. If ever a book deserved to be called haunting...
There' supposedly a movie coming based on it, we'll hope they don't butcher it.
