Review By David Perrotta,Just Press Play,May 2010

Degas is an Englishman by birth, but he has no trouble shifting from the Scottish locale of Skulduggery Pleasant to a completely credible American accent for McCarthy’s heart-rending, suspenseful story of a man and a boy struggling to live on in a post-apocalyptic America in which everything has died, save for a few sad and dangerous people.

McCarthy’s book is a meditation on love, loss, the will to live, obligation, ecology, and the essentials of morality and survival. Degas reads it with a great deal of heart, bringing to life the scared boy and his loving but increasingly desperate father. His reading might even make you cry. Not every narrator can do that.
