What the community says about The Passage

    "I will rate it 2 because I think I felt compelled to abandon before the end. Its not that bad, I found the first half is very good but then it descended into the realms of dull, futuristic nonsense of the type that completely switches me off. I keep waiting for SOMETHING to happen, but nothing does."

    "This book is epic! The characters really draw you in. It is a doomsday novel, yes, and horror as well. It is a long book, at 785 pages, but don't let that put you off if you live shorter reads. It starts off a little slow, but keep reading, because once the pace picks up you cannot put it down. I highly recommend it. "

    "Although I have yet to read this book, it's been recommended to me many times by friends who, like me, enjoy horror fiction and vampires quite a bit. I am a fan of stories that take time to unfold, and this being part of a trilogy of not short books gives me faith that this will be a long and winding road. That said, I feel like there are a lot of other vampire novels which should be mentioned before this one, or any other other more modern novels which have come from vampires being more in fashion. What about Dracula, or I, Dracula?"

    "The Passage is one of the most unique post apocalyptic titles I've ever read. It is absolutely amazing. I finished this book in no time as I could not put it down. "

    "People love these kinds of books but I am not just into them. The Passage is one of the best sellers books of Justin Cronin who has written many books like The Passage. It is really hard to call them as a scary book, but I would consider it to be in the category of thriller and suspense."

    "Hands down, The Passage is proof-positive that, when placed in the right hands, one can still fashion diamonds from classic vampire tropes. At first blush, one might consider a 800-page dystopian thriller chock full of immortal, light-sensitive vampires; biblical undertones; an audacious time-jump that spans a century between the first third of the book and the remainder of the story; and the fate of the world resting squarely on the shoulders of an enigmatic preteen girl is too ambitious an endeavor. But Houston novelist Justin Cronin can seemingly do no wrong, and successfully sustains the narrative by defying expectations every step of the way. The Passage is one of the finest written examples of apocalyptic horror—lurid, meditative, and epic in scope. Despite being a vampire saga, the book is peppered with such human themes as love, hope, destiny, friendship, and sufficient pathos to satisfy top-notch literature enthusiasts. The language is both poetic and beautiful, the dialogue believable and appealing, while the narrative shifts tempo—both in style and time period—in order to keep things intriguing"
