Band of Brothers, by Ambrose. Only about 60 pages in but so far it's quite good.

An unnamed father and his young son journey across a grim post-apocalyptic landscape, some years after a major unexplained cataclysm has destroyed civilization and most life on Earth. The land is filled with ash and devoid of living animals and vegetation. Many of the remaining human survivors have resorted to cannibalism, scavenging the detritus of city and country alike for flesh. The boy's mother, pregnant with him at the time of the disaster, gave up hope and committed suicide some time before the story begins, despite the father's pleas. Much of the book is written in the third person, with references to "the father" and "the son" or to "the man" and "the boy".
Realizing that they would not survive the oncoming winter where they are, the father takes the boy south along empty roads towards the sea, carrying their meager possessions in their knapsacks and in a supermarket cart. The man coughs blood from time to time and eventually realizes he is dying, yet still struggles to protect his son from the constant threats of attack, exposure, and starvation.
They have a revolver, but only two rounds. The boy has been told to use the gun on himself if necessary to avoid falling into the hands of cannibals. During their trek, the father uses one bullet to kill a man who stumbles upon them and poses a grave threat. Fleeing from the man's companions, they have to abandon most of their possessions. As they are near death from starvation, the man finds an unlooted underground bunker filled with food and other necessities. However, it is too exposed, so they only stay a few days.
In the face of these obstacles, the man repeatedly reassures the boy that they are "the good guys" who are "carrying the fire". On their journey, the duo scrounge for food, evade roving bands, and contend with horrors such as a newborn infant roasted on a spit, and captives being gradually harvested as food.
Although the man and the boy eventually reach the sea, their situation does not improve. They head back inland, but the man succumbs to an illness. Before he dies, the father tells the boy that he can continue to speak with him in his imagination after he is gone. The boy holds wake over the corpse for days, with no idea of what to do next.
On the third day, the grieving boy encounters a man who says he has been tracking the pair. The man, who has a woman and two children of his own, a boy and a girl, convinces the boy that he is one of the "good guys" and takes him under his protection.

UNBROKEN.


WOW! What a story. Highly recommended. It can be a little slow, but the things people are subjected to and survive are just mind-blowing.

I just finished Unbroken as well. It was a great book. Kept me up a few nights making me think how lucky I have been and made me appreciate older folks even more.

Bought a book that had Carrie, Salem's Lot and The Shining all under one cover. It's been years since I read these Stephen King stories. Damn good reads

Just finished The Stand. What a grind.

I almost feel bad saying that it's one of those, "it's more about the journey than the destination" books because I thought the ending was a little weak.

Being that it's Stephen King I expected

Just finished American Gods, and I have to say, it was excellent. Very well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
