Any Cormac McCarthy Fans?

While most readers have heard of and/or seen the film adaptation of McCarthy's No Country for Old Men, a smaller number probably knows any of the author's other works. And it's a shame. Do yourself a favor and actually read a few of his books. The All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing, and Cities of the Plains trilogy is great. But his best work is probably the Pulitzer Prize winning The Road. It's the tale of a father and his son struggling to survive in post-apocalyptic America. And it's coming to theaters next month (October 16). After No Country for Old Men, it's hard not to be at least a little bit excited about this movie. Viggo Mortnesen and Charlize Theron will star. Here's the trailer:
