Cormac McCarthy is pissing me off

I am almost finished with this thing called a book - The Road - by Cormac McCarthy. It has been making rounds among friends and I was gifted it twice over. It is a quick read.

The thing is just PISSING me off. I have rarely reacted so negatively to a book before. I honestly can't remember the last art piece that got such an angry reaction out of me.

Every time I open it I get so depressed, I start mumbling under my breath, pondering the gray lackluster experience we call Life.

I have no idea why people adore this thing. I have no idea why it grates me so much. I love it for making me so itchy and hateful, I abhor it for pushing me to such lows. There is no coming up for air. No chapters. Just a string of words that keep getting worse and worse. No hope from beginning to end. And yet with all of this .... I am still reading.

I have to finish it, just so I can have a cohesive argument for or against it. His writing style is wonderful and original. He has a way with phrasing things... yes. But the story itself is haunting me to the point of direness.

Those of you that have read it already... what do you think of it?

I always wondered how Oprah has time to read all those books she recommends... lols, I wonder what she thought? Sorry, no thought provoking comments here...I can go get it though. The last book I read that ticked me off was quite thought provoking. "Mars & Venus on a Date" it started out great and then I got depressed and angry. Um, I am a woman. I am going to be a woman. Thank you very much. And you are a man and you will be a man. You don't go trying to change the breed of an animal, the same animal you chose to live with. You chose it because it suited you or should have... but, I digress...

I drop a cоmment each time I apprесiаte а article оn a sitе oг I have somеthing to
νaluable to contribute to the discussіon.
Usuаlly it is a rеsult of thе ѕincerness communiсated
in the post I bгowsed. And on this pοst "Cormac McCarthy is pissing me off".
I ωas actually moved enough to leave a comment :-P ӏ actually ԁo have а cοuple of questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks look like written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you list every one of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
