An unnamed man walks with his son through a post-apocalyptic landscape looking for food and shelter, haunted by memories of life before the cataclysm. The man protects his child from a world that incrementally comes into focus as the evil surrounding them begins first as sparse suggestions of danger and turns later into harrowing descriptions of violence.

This book is hard to read – but so is William Goldman’s Lord of the Flies or George Orwell’s 1984.
