"This is no country he knows, and no place he ever wants to see, even in the shuttered madness of his worst dreams. But Richard Jane survived. He walks because he has no choice and at the end of this molten road, running along the spine of a burned, battered country, his son may be alive. The sky crawls with venomous cloud and burning rain while the land is a scorched sprawl of rubble and corpses. Rats have risen from the depths to gorge on the carrion, and a glittering dust coats everything. It hides a terrible secret as new horrors take root. He walks on, with one hope."--Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

A tamer version of "The Unblemished" that shows England after an unknown destructive force. Bleak and grainy, but with excellent writing and breathable characters.

A tamer version of "The Unblemished" that shows England after an unknown destructive force. This novel makes Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" look like "Spot Goes To The Farm." Bleak and grainy, but as with his other works, excellent writing and breathable characters.

This book made me cry.

The last time I cried was in Swampscott, MA in 1998.

This book is that good.
