    Under the Dome de Stephen King (jlparent)
    jlparent: The Passage reminded me greatly of "Under the Dome", with its intense look at how people cope in a 'new' world. Obviously it's also is hugely reminiscent of "The Stand" as already recommended.

This book had some lulls, but I couldn't put it down. I love post-apocalyptic fiction and I kept coming back to read more. It had the feel of an episodic TV series, Cronin has a way of really making you visualize each scene and the drama of the survivors trying to get by in a world ravaged by vampire/zombies called "virals". I hope it takes another year for the next book to be released, I need a break! The last 300 pages went by quickly, I just couldn't stop reading. ( )

A great book. I think it sits very strongly against the inevitable comparison with Stephen King's :The Stand. I agree with other reviews here that the middle segment set in the first colony doesn't really work as well as the rest of the novel - I think it is because it introduces so many new characters so quickly and (as is bourne out as you read the novel) many of them do not really feature in the rest of the story. You can't help wondering why Cronin dwells on this storyline so long.

But they key players eventually get the story underway again and we all breathe sigh of relief and get treated to some excellent plot twists and great set pieces beautifully balanced with some acute and heartfelt observations on the human condition which what really lifts the novel to it's status above and beyond the standard vampire/zombie apocalypse.

Cannot wait for the sequel. ( )

Summary: End Of Days. Virus manipulated by US military creates vampires who create lots and lots of corpses (as well as quite a few more vampires, duh). Some humans survive. One survivor, also deliberately infected with said virus, did not become a homicidal blood-sucking monster. But is this person special because of how they responded to the virus, or were they already special? And what does humanity do to adapt to their new status as prey?

963 pages?! I'm not much of a genre fiction reader these days, although I do try to read broadly. But bloody hell, I'd forgotten how very EPIC some of these books could be. I will read the next instalment, though not for a while. I also gather (from the little teaser included at the end of this house-brick of a book) that Cronin is going to do that thing I HATE which is start Book Two with completely new characters and I predict it will be many dozens of pages at least before I get to read anything about the characters from Book One, in whom I'm now deeply emotionally invested. Damn you, author!

Justin Cronin made me care about his characters as though they were real people. To me, this is always a mark of a good storyteller. The broader brush strokes of the plot aren't especially original. It's the subtler elements of character development, (and a Game-Of-Thrones-esque capacity to kill off characters just when you really start to love them) that won me over. The journeys taken by our various heroes and anti-heroes had sufficiently high stakes for me to nervously bite my lips as I read, wondering if this was the night everyone was going to die horribly or if they'd miraculously survive to greet the dawn. And if they did, what would the next day bring?

I will also say that this story owes a massive debt to Stephen King. This is not a bad thing. The guy is a master storyteller. ( )

I turned The Passage's pages feverishly to find out what happened next.

Cronin leaps back and forth in time, sprinkling his narrative with diaries, ­e-mail messages, maps, newspaper articles and legal documents. Sustaining such a long book is a tough endeavor, and every so often his prose slackens into inert phrases (“his mind would be tumbling like a dryer”). For the most part, though, he artfully unspools his plot’s complexities, and seemingly superfluous details come to connect in remarkable ways.

When all's said and done, The Passage is a wonderful idea for a book that – like too many American TV series – knows how good it is and therefore outstays its welcome. There are enough human themes (hope, love, survival, friendship, the power of dreams) to raise it well above the average horror, but its internal battle between the literary and the schlock will, I
 
T MAY already have the Stephen King stamp of approval and the Ridley Scott movie-script treatment but American author Justin Cronin's 800-page blockbuster The Passage comes from humble beginnings.

"Every book starts somewhere and this came from a dare of a nine-year-old child," he says of his daughter Iris, who wanted a story where a young girl saves the world.

When I have seen by Time's fell hand defac'd
the rich proud cost of outworn buried age;
When sometimes lofty towers I see down-raz'd,
And brass eternal slave to mortal rage;
When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the watery main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store;
When I have seen such interchange of state,
Or state itself confounded to decay;
Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate
That Time will come and take my love away.

-William Shakespeare, Sonnet 64
