The Passage (The Passage, #1)The Passage by Justin Cronin
My rating: 2 of 5 stars.

Why did I pick this up now, so many years after release? Well, vampires!

Plus, I got caught in the hype machine of marketing the latest novel and figured I had to start at the beginning.

To be completely frank, this book gets off to a cracking start. While I didn’t find Cronin the most engaging writer, the plot and story had more hooks than a pirate party.

But halfway through the book, with all the subtlety of “From Dusk till Dawn”, you are slapped in the face with a dystopian future drama that feels very high-school.

It was a slog to finish this book and I only got there because of some inane compulsion to finish everything I start. Sometimes I want to give myself an upper-cut.
