@jeffmueller which one? I’ve read about US 61 and maybe others.
@jason I cheated. I read The Road.
@jeffmueller what’d you think? I hated it.
@jason I liked it! I think it helps to be in a certain frame of mind while reading it (depressed and anxious about human frailty and the inevitability of death worked well).
@jeffmueller those facets worked for me. I just thought it was a lazy effort, from a writing standpoint.

@jason Wasn't it an admitted lazy effort? I think he said he wrote it very quickly after a trip through west Texas with his son.
@jeffmueller could be. I haven’t heard that, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
