The Passage by Justin Cronin

★★★★★

i>It had never occurred to her that God would cry, but of course that was wrong. God would be crying all the time. He would cry and cry and never stop.

I don’t normally like vampire books. Vampires have become integrated in a formula for an instant best seller, thanks to books like Twilight, much like World War Z and zombies. So I avoid books like these in general.

However, The Passage is so much more than a vampire book. It is a book that focuses more on courage, relationships, heartbreak, survival and hope. It isn’t a small book by any means, having approximately 800 pages but it is a book that I enjoyed so much those pages just flew by, leaving me wanting more because Cronin can WRITE.

It takes a great author to introduce you to a character who may only be present for a few chapters in the book, but remains with you.

We live, we die. Somewhere along the way, if we’re lucky, we may find someone to help lighten the load.

I don’t want to reveal too much about this book as part of what makes this book amazing is the slow unfolding of events. This is my second time reading through, so that should tell you how much I enjoyed it. It is quite an undertaking, but I feel like it is completely worth it.
