So far in the book, the man dreams of a woman he once knew, but he soon wakes, claiming that dreaming is not good. The next day the father fixes some brooms to his cart so they can sweep away limbs when they move down the road. A while later they come to the edge of a city, and the father finds some blankets inside a house. The next stop is a supermarket where they try in vain to find a new cart; however, the father does recover a can of coke, which he gives to his son. They then come to the house where the father grew up. The boy is scared to go in, but follows his father anyway. What book reminds me of a game called the last of us because the main character in book are a older man and a kid surviving through a post apocalyptic world and that is the same plot as the last of us. A comparison between the book's government and today's government is that in the road there is no government where today society still strives so we have a government.
The book tells the story of a father and son traveling through a post apocalyptic America. They scavenge for food, clothes, and shelter all while traveling toward the coast in hopes of finding something better. The father develops a bad cough from the horrid weather. He’s shot by an arrow and eventually dies from complications brought on by his poor health. He passes on his last piece of fatherly advice and his son has no choice but to meet new companions and continue the journey. I have read a dystonian novel before and it wasn´t nearly as good as this book. Some similarities between our society and the book is that they are both set on earth and it looks to be set in the present or set 4 years back.
