Escapegrace on "The Road"

Chris of escapegrace runs this cool recurring feature, "52 books in 52 weeks." If you're looking for suggested reading -- and somehow can't find a book you like here at the CftAR -- 52b/52w is a good place to check for a smart reader's quick and clean reaction to some interesting books.

From the first entry in Chris' 2007 52b/52w edition, on Cormac McCarthy's The Road:
I was so invested in these characters that I would worry about them at work and then come home and be afraid to pick the book up because I was scared to see what was going to happen to them but then be unable to resist.
I felt the same way.

--Marshal Zeringue
