This paperback was given to me unregistered by my friend Snoopy56 when we met for lunch today. She had previously tried to register it without success as the site wasn't working properly but was happy for me to do the registering of it.
It tells the story of a father and son in a burned-out America, attempting to survive in a "brave new world". 'An exemplar of post-apocalyptic writing'.

REVIEW:- "I found this book very well-written but at the same time very harrowing and horrific at times. The author made me feel that I was with him and his son as they trudged along "the road" searching for food and shelter. Although the story was fairly repetitious it didn't get boring and I applauded the (un-named) father for his resilience and resourcefulness in meeting their needs I think the author very well described what would probably happen if such a disastrous happening should ever take place in the world. I thought the book had a fairly satisfactory ending but I would have liked to know a bit more about how things progressed for "the boy".
Reserved for another bookcrosser.

This book was posted to another bookcrosser.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Arrived safely along with its friends. I'm unsure as to whether or not I've already read it. I will have to check before I tackle it. Many thanks for sharing.
