I read THE ROAD as a straight story. Maybe it's allegorical. I didn't find it postmodern.

************** The boy is a Christ-image, isn't he? There are several allusions to this. He swims in the lake. That's baptism. He shows more compassion for people than his world-wise father. When he's sick, it's three days and nights. That's resurrection in my book. But as you say, just a straight story is a great way to read it.
