Those familiar with McCarthy's unique spare writing style will find Tom Stechschulte's performance of THE ROAD a good fit. Stechschulte's voice maintains a somber, growling quality that suits the mournful story of a father and son, two survivors journeying across a scorched America. McCarthy's riveting descriptions of setting and characters are delivered at a measured pace and with a rich depth that is appealing from opening line to closing scene. Although the story's subject matter is truly bleak, Stechschulte's capable performance is offered in an accessible tone that complements McCarthy's skilled prose. In a way, McCarthy and Stechschulte share a common gift. Both are masters at conveying significant meaning with little fanfare and peerless results.
