Winner: The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Shortlisted were Alice McDermott's After This and Richard Powers' The Echo Maker.

Details here.

This is the book I was rooting for to win the Pulitzer. I'm excited that 1) I loved this book and 2) I completed it before it was announced the winner (and before Oprah)! I don't have an "official" review of it yet because I listened to it on audio and wanted to re-read the print version. The only reason I rated it a 4.5 instead of a 5 is because I can't stand the lack of punctuation (one of the reasons I listened to the audiobook).

The Road is a very deserving winner!
