The film tells the story of a man (Viggo Mortensen) and his young son (Kodi Smit McPhee.) traveling through a desperate, post-apocalyptic world. The flap jacket on the book describes the setting as “burned America.”The film co-stars Robert Duvall and Charlize Theron, and Guy Pearce.

This looks rather good. I need to read the book!

  1. @nyokki: Do yourself a favor and read the damn book before October. The sooner the better, as they will be releasing more and more footage as we get closer.

    This book is a quick read, and a very easy one to make personal. It’s not difficult to impose your own relationships over those of the characters in the book. Watching a bunch of clips of Viggo will eventually spoil that.

    Anyhow, probably the best book I read last year.

  2. @suicydking: I’m buying the book this weekend. I just realized, while reading the article, that my taste in books is almost opposite and unconnected to my taste in movies. I tend to read books that will prolly never make it to the movies. In books I like depth, complexity and fully fleshed out characters. IOW, I expect my books to be ‘good’. Movies, not so much. The movies I like tend to be graphic, simple/straightforward, characters that are relatively understandable and make me think (but not too much;)) Hmm, weird.
