My Review: The Passage

The Passage by Justin Cronin


“It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born.”

First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.

My Rating:  3 stars

The Passage is a very long book 843 pages on my nook.  The book was written in 3 parts, which each part could have stood on its own.  I thought this was a very good read, the plot was very interesting.  The ending of this book is what made it 3 stars instead of 4 stars.  I felt that it was rushed.

 Just Nook It! Theresa

  3. That's crazy a book that's 843 pages could seem rushed! It definitely sounds like an interesting concept though and I've never heard of this one before, so thanks for the review. :)

  4. I loved The Passage! I can't wait to get my hands on book 2. Maybe that ending has something to do with it...

  5. This sounds suspenseful esp if the ending would have been better.
