I kept waiting for all the pieces of this story to pull together and make some sense - but that really didn't happen. As long as it was (and I DO love long books), you would think that there would be some meaty and satisfying ending, but it just seemed as if the author got tired of writing, or had a deadline or some other issue that had nothing to do with the story (truly, there wasn't much of a story - just lots of rambling). Anyway - it ended abruptly and I said to myself, WTF! Not only that, but what a depressing, hopeless and non-redeeming environment. Well, it passed the time on the freeway, but I would not recommend this book - rather boring, rambling, pointless and without a logical or reasonable conclusion. I will give it two stars for the sheer effort - possibly mine, not his, lol..
From my reading history my perfect book would include; a space ship piloted by Ender Wiggin, that is infested by Zombies, who are being hunted by Drizzt Do'Urden and Lestat, while Joe Ledger and Amy Harper Bellafonte try to keep the ship from distroying Middleguard. The Sequal would be from Bean's perspective, with an epilogue by Malcolm Gladwell.
If you like post-apocalyptic zombie books and movies you will love this book. I know it's about vampires but it wouldn't take a lot of rewriting to make into a George A. Romero Movie.
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.
