SCOUTE. is one of my absolute favorite online magazines. It's dark, it's smart and it's on point.

In the current issue, you will find an article by Eugene Rabkin reviewing The Road, a book by Cormac McCarthy that has recently been made into a movie. Rabkins descriptions of the book have me enthralled to the point of shivers. Here's some of what he says:

"They represent humanity. They carry the heavy load of moral conduct on their shoulders."
"Everything in the world is dark, the sun is barely visible, the clouds are constant, and the ash makes everything gray."

Sure it's a little grim for these flowery, sunny Spring days but a good read is a good read and I am off to the book store to pick up a copy in preperation for the film release later this year.
