    Hey All!

    I’m a senior at my school and my last written task for English (currently) is to read The Road and write a chapter intervention that ‘fills a gap’ within the novel. Attached is my current copy of my intervention and I was wondering if you all could give me some feedback as to whether you believe what I’ve written is within the characteristics and traits of the Man and Boy as well as the events. I know it needs to be more subtle and I’m working on this at the moment.

    Thanks guys so much for any help/opinions/views you give me! It’s greatly appreciated!!

    I think you’ve nicely captured the tone of McCarthy’s prose here, and I only had time this morning to give it a quick look, but I really think that building a fire inside an old wooden house is a very bad idea that McCarthy’s father, as described, would surely not endorse. He’s far too survival-savvy to entertain any gambit quite that fraught with risks.

    I’ll try to look at this again later this evening and provide a little more feedback for you.
