Mr. McCarthy does an excellent job of creating a post-apocalyptic world. However, I would have liked to have just a little more emotion (getting in the characters' heads). But then again, given the circumstances of the story, it's understandable how there wouldn't be much emotion left in the characters. Don't get me wrong. There IS emotion. It's just more understood than written.
It's because of this I didn't fully connect with the characters. But that's okay. It was still a very enjoyable read and I absolutely recommend this book.
