An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy—abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape—but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.

    First part of the book engages. Then, around 600 pages in,( more than 2,000 pages on IBooks) sags like a beaten up old Turkish Army cot. Boring, confusing, and you could care less about these people. How this trilogy succeeds is beyond this readers comprehension. So dull, I didn't even finish it and deleted it from my library.

    This was an amazing read ! It's probably the longest (881 pages) that I have read in quite awhile. Great story line, great characters and fun to read. I will say that there were a couple of places where it bogged down but it picked right back up and moved forward. Can't wait wait to read the second book of this series. I highly recommend it but make sure you are willing to make the time commitment.

    This has to be one of the best books I have ever read. I was completely swept away by the whole concept of this story. So well written, so descriptive, so beautiful in so many ways - yet horrifying and so suspenseful, I just couldn't put it down. Highly, highly recommend this book!

    This is the first book to make me completely emotionally invested in the characters. So much so that I found myself grieving this deaths or misfortunes and having nightmares if I had to leave off reading in a tense place. I can't wait to read The Twelve, and hopefully finally get to the bottom of the mystery that is Amy. Thank you, Mr Cronin, for a thoroughly fantastic ride!
  • Loooooong Paragraphs.....

    It's an okay story and I would normally give it three stars. I mean let's face it, I finished the stupid book, didn't I? But wow! It has some of the longest paragraphs I have ever seen in the history of literature. I mean, a couple of the paragraphs are reminiscent of War and Peace itself! Many, many times I would simply flip through the pages, three or four at a time, and feel like I missed nothing in the story plot. Buy it at your own risk.
