So much for Oprah's Book Pick
She picked "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. Here's the first line or two from the review on Amazon for this critically acclaimed book.
"Cormac McCarthy sets his new novel, The Road, in a post-apocalyptic blight of gray skies that drizzle ash, a world in which all matter of wildlife is extinct, starvation is not only prevalent but nearly all-encompassing, and marauding bands of cannibals roam the environment with pieces of human flesh stuck between their teeth. If this sounds oppressive and dispiriting, it is."
Now doesn't that sound like a fun book club read???
"Myrtle, will you re-read the passage about how the little girl got her flesh ripped off her body by her step-dad's teeth while I re-heat the Velveeta nacho cheese dip? Thanks, hon."
