    Analysis:
    Our theme is perhaps the most relevent and appropriate theme for "The Road". The journey that the man and his son take is a true quest. They are traveling with a purpose, and the purpose is to live. There is no other motivation that is stronger than the will to live, and the need to protect your offspring. The object of their quest is to get to the coast, to escape the cold of winter. All of these quotes that we chose relate to the journey that the man and his son take. They show the hardships that the characters go through, as well as their experiences on the road. The characters don't have an exact plan, they just know that they are going to the coast. This is how "The Road is a quest".

    Explanation: Like most father/son relationships the man and son don't need to talk in order to bond. The lack of dialogue in the book helps set the mood and tone for the challenges that they must overcome together.

    Discussion Questions:1. How would the book be different if the relationship between the two was mother and daughter instead of father and son?2. How would it be different if the boy was a teenager instead of a little boy?
