The Road - Cormac McCarthy If you were to ask me my most hated book, I would reply, without second thought, The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

I hate how much love it gets. I grit my teeth and clench my jaw and hate this book with a passion that is scary. This is not English. This is not writing. This is not good story telling!

This is a gimmick. A gimmick parading around as literature. I get it, you can break the rules of grammar.

I hate it.

The arrogance of taking a language and mangling it. Art! you say. All in the name of art!

No. Art is done well. Art is done superbly without forsaking the foundations upon which it is built.

I hate this book. I hate this book with the passion of a thousand burning suns.
