Favorite Quote: “The stories gets passed on and the truth gets passed over. As the saying goes. Which I reckon some would take as meanin that the truth cant compete. But I dont believe that. I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. You cant corrupt it because thats what it is.”

Why I Chose It: I read “The Road” by McCarthy a few years ago and it floored me…

Other Notes: …this story is a little more gritty but not as hard. The writing style and prose takes a little while to adjust to, but the telling is gripping once you acclimate.
