The road ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,343 libraries worldwide
A holocaust has destroyed the world. Civilization lies in ruins. Nothing grows. The Man and his young son, the Boy, struggle across the devastated, post-apocalyptic landscape, pushing their belongings in a shopping cart, hoping to reach the coast. It is almost impossible to find any food. Life on the road is a deadly game of hide, seek, and devour with bloodthirsty bands of roving, starving, survivalist types, many of whom have fallen into cannibalism. The Man carries the curse of remembering the world as it once was, while for the Boy, the world has always been destroyed, any intimation that life was once different is foreign to his existence. Love--of the Man and Boy for each other--is the one testament to a humanity that remains, even in the face of total chaos.

19th-century "folklore collectors" Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm are con artists. They perform exorcisms of "evil enchantments" (for a healthy fee) while wandering about in French-occupied Germany during the Napoleonic wars. Wilhelm is a swashbuckling cad with an answer for everything, while Jacob is a dreamer who looks at life through fairytale-tinted spectacles. When French Gen. Delatombe gets wise to the schemes of Team Grimm, he presents them with a real-life mystery to solve or face the executioner's ax: children in a village have been disappearing--now the brothers' lives depend on finding out why. The charlatans must accept the burden of vanquishing what they claim as real, and find themselves ensnared in a genuinely supernatural crisis in a dark forest, amid fantastical marvels and truly enchanted flora and fauna.
