The Passage ~ Justin Cronin


Picked from the N Y T Best Sellers Christmas List.
Thank you Santa!!!

Wow! A mammoth brick of a book at 766 pages!

Yes, it muddied itself towards the end as it set itself up for a sequel (the last 200 odd pages were trying). But it was a great read.

Well constructed premise with well written characters. Alphie compared it to an “I Am Legend” type of storyline ... taken further. Kind of vampire-virus dystopian world.

It is amazing that such a long book is just the first of a trilogy and you have to wonder/worry if the others will be as long or as good???? But this one was well written storytelling.
