Synopsis:

Some unnamed catastrophe has scourged the world to a burnt-out cinder, inhabited by the last remnants of mankind and a very few surviving dogs and fungiThe sky is perpetually shrouded by dust and toxic particulates; the seasons are merely varied intensities of cold and dampnessBands of cannibals roam the roads and inhabit what few dwellings remain intact in the woods.

Review:

While certainly one of the darkest works I've read in recent years, The Road" is perhaps not as bleak as it first appears.
