The Passage

A pogo print of the book I have just finished reading-"The Passage" by Justin Cronin. Nearly a thousand pages long and I finished it in about a week and a half! The quote from ''The Saffron Sea'' is most appropriate for this post-apocalytic story.

''If now is happy be glad, before it becomes then.''

This book is one of those that I couldn't put down. It reminded me a lot of Stephen King-in the gripping nature of the story and in the way the relationships in the book are portrayed and used to make a fantastical story believeable. It is the first in a trilogy but the second isn't out yet!
