The latest book picked for Oprah's Book Club is Cormac McCarthy's The Road. I'm pretty sure this is the first science fiction book, and first out and out genre novel, named to the prestigous club. I'm really curious what all of those Oprah readers will think of McCarthy's dark post-apocalyptic story. This is pretty cool.
However, as it is almost assured to reach the best-seller lists and stay there for a while, will the Oprah sticker turn away some people the book would otherwise appeal to?
