Cormac McCarthy's The Road

Our next book will be The Road by Cormac McCarthy. This book epitomises the phrase 'post apocalyptic' so its a perfect choice for us. 


Heres the synopsis:

This novel paints a bleak vision of a post-apocalyptic America; a land where no hope remains. A man and his son walk alone towards the coast, and this is the moving story of their journey. The Road is an unflinching exploration of human behavior - from ultimate destructiveness to extreme tenderness.


N.B. After several problems with Rain Bar (most notable being kicked out at 8pm at our last meet up) we now be making the Britons Protection our new location. Its a stone's throw from Rain Bar so it should be easy for most of you to find and it has got far more character and much friendlier bar staff! All in all it's a much better location for us.


Hope to see you all soon!

    First time attendee tomorrow but as fortune would have it I'm attending a workshop near the Central Library during the day with an end time of 4pm. I'm planning to catch a late train home so if anybody would like to help me kill some time prior to the meet I'll be hanging out at the Starbucks on Mount Street (unless there's a better alternative).
