Wow, just finally read this.
Happy stuff isn't it?
Yeah - I enjoyed it because I love apocalyptic shit but I have to kill the voice that is dying to find out what exactly happened to cause the world to turn to shit. I also want to know WHERE they are but that's really not the point, obviously.
The point is the humanity or lackthereof that comes with being stuck in a hopeless, frightening world with nothing to do but figure out ways to survive until you can't any more and you die.
But I'll be damned if reading this book now that I have a son vs. having read it before my son makes it a completely different experience.
I went with Yellowstone erupting.
Which means they would be traveling east.
You're right in that isn't really the point though, it's whatever/wherever you want it to be, which McCarthy did on purpose.
And having kids has for years made it impossible for me to get through watching or reading many things.
A second viewing of Sophie's choice? It's not gonna hai.
