Scary good

Love this book and the author. Don't let the length of the book scare you away. Every page is stellar.

Getting totally into Book=over 700 pages

Is really worth reading all pages 2 hit the reasons for reading this book. The 700+ pages 2 get to the meat... Is worth it!

Right now husband & I are hoping 2 get next book [before end-of-world 2012 (giggle)] very soon. Hopefully, won't have 2 go through stand alone style (history) of book and it will give us the grist [meat] of final story.

Something borrowed, something new.

A young writer writes two well-received, but poor-selling literary novels. What does he do for a follow-up? Pens an epic-length, post-apocalyptic, vampire extravaganza!

Though I found The Passage to be highly derivative (Mr. Cronin seems to borrow often and shamelessly from many popular and literary sources), the story only picks up steam as it hums along. Though the beginning dragged a bit, I really felt he hit his stride by Part III. The outpost of humanity hanging on by a thread, while hope and ancient technology slowly fades, was simply un-put-down-able. The characters, also, were well fleshed out and sympathetic-- even, to some extent, the vampires.

The ending? Well let?s not spoil things, shall we? Read The Passage for the adventure and suspense if nothing else.
