Cormac McCarthy on the Law of Attraction?

After ensuring the Secret, the planet smasher of a book made up of spittle and post-it notes is everyone's birthday present for the past few months; Oprah is going to have at Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
In keeping with the Rhonda Byrne title it seems the few who survived the end of the world in McCarthy's novel projected negative thoughts at some time in their lives or previous lives and were responsible for their lot. Or some twaddle like that.
They should have just applied the "principles" of the Law of Attraction and wished for a Benz.
One novelty hit pretty much guarantees another.
I just don't see that there's any difference.

It probably bears noting that the Road is in the championship match in the Tournament against Gary Shteyngart's Absurdistan. I'd bet the proverbial farm on this one.
