A lot of people have had some issues with the way this book was written but I thought that was what made it stand apart from others and really added to the feeling of the book. Neither of the main characters have names, quotes are never used, and most scenes are very quick and only a few paragraphs with short sentences. That format really helped convey how bleak, cold, and dying the word had become. Instead of just describing how desolate the world had become McCarthy really conveys this through his writing style and it really helped connect me more with the book.
