I didn't know this was a "vampire" book. If I had known, I wouldn't have bought it. That said, I was totally engrossed about a third of the way through. Not very happy about the ending... but a really good listen.
The Passage wasn't perfect, and it wasn't great literature - but it was involving, easy to follow, and fun. Pretty much the definition of a good summer read. At times it seemed more like a series of short stories woven together, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
This story seemed to drag on and on. I kinda got tired of everyone of the characters towards the middle and wanted to hear how it ended.
Good characters, well written, but I couldn't help feeling pretty creeped out by some of the details that seemed unnecessary and were there just to creep the reader out. It left me feeling unfinished. So what is Peter?
I really enjoyed this book. Scott Brick is excellent as always, and the story was extremely well done. However, I felt that the ending was pretty much cut short by realizing the book needed to get to print. So many questions were posed in the last few chapters for it to end so abruptly with no further explanation.
This book kept my interest from beginning to end. I was dissapointed at the ending, only because I cannot wait for the next book to come out. I am also studying virology right now so it does scare me a little considering that militaries DO play with viruses.
The Passage is a long dry listen with a lousy ending. At best it is a slow action adventure and worst it is a broken record repeating the same word over and over and over again. I would not recommend this.
Amazing story, made all the better by the best narration I think I've ever heard in an audiobook. Don't hesitate, this one is a winner.
