The Road-movie!

Last year, I joined a book club with two other females(mmmmhuh). The three of us took a Sunday to go to downtown Petaluma to Barnes and Nobles and get a book for the club. Within an hour we agreed on a book called "The Road" written by Cormac McArthy. We all couldn't set the book down the rest of the week and never got to meet and talk about the book because we all read it before the first scheduled meeting. Well, According to USA today, the film is in its making and you can count me in for the midnight showing. The book is about an unnamed catastrophe on Earth and a father and a son traveling down the Road for shelter and a place to begin their new lives.With only a gun loaded with two bullets and a shopping cart with blankets and canned food, the journey seems impossible. The book really shows the love for a son and the sacrifices a father does to keep his young alive. I highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys reading before they go to sleep. I handed down the book to <3Aleksandra<3 from "Los Campesinos" with a love letter letting her know how beautiful she is this past July when they played in Pomona. I wonder if she popped open the book......
