Books 15 - 16 / 100

15. The Road - Cormac McCarthy
              Bleak, depressing, nothing much happens besides the end of the world and the human race. 
              I loved it.  Such great descriptions.  Some really scary scenes, and honestly, it was scarier for the lack of explanations.  Made it seem more like a nightmare.  

16. Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything in Italy, India, and Indonesia - Elizabeth Gilbert
              I didn't think I'd like this book.  But then I read an interview with the author and she was just so rockin' that I started reading the book right away.  And it was great.  First, she's funny.  Normally, I wouldn't be too interested in someone else's spiritual journey, but it never felt preachy.  Even when she was talking about serious stuff, she made me laugh.  But second, I found her story of depression and recovery to be compelling and true to my experiences.  I recommend it.
