Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

The Road best ever!

This is by far the best book I have ever read in my life. I was so moved by the writing of McCarthy that I have been been stuck searching for another book to read. Every book I read does not compare to The Road. Does anyone have any suggestions on a book similar to this one?? I need something that makes me can't wait to read the next page consumed with the horror of what I am reading.

Hi Sarah,

If you want to stick with McCarthy, pick up Blood Meridian next. There's plenty of horror in it!

Re: The Road best ever! similar books

Poetic prose like Cormac's The Road:

 

*  Ron Hansen's MARIETTE IN ECTASY

*  Cecilia Dart-Thornton's The Well of Tears

 

I'm always looking for similar poetic fiction. Very hard to find.

Have come across some but either it was a horror story or

contained lewdness and that is against my morals.
