2007 Cormac McCarthy The only reason I read this was because it was on the List. The previews of the movie looked horror-ish and I'm not a big fan of those sorts of movies. But the book turned out to be a good read. A father and his son set out to find warmer weather after an Apocalypse. Bleak, as are all the McCarthy books I've read to date, but still worth reading.
