By far one of the best novels I've read. Just finished it. It starts off a bit slow, but once it gets going, it's breathtaking. I'm a guy and there are parts where I'm nearly in tears. Books usually don't quite get me like this, but in here McCarthy makes the reader feel like part of the struggle. You can feel the cold of the wind, see the cold of their breathes and feel the fear in their hearts. Highly recommended book, especially for our materialistic society.
