First, the story is just so layered and multi-faceted. It's so well-crafted that it feels like there is not a single thing that happens that does not have further significance. I literally didn't want to stop reading because I *had* to know what was next. Second, Scott Brick's narration is probably the best I've ever heard. It's flawless.
It is literally unlike any novel I've ever written. The Twelve isn't even similar to The Passage, at least the first half of it anyway.
It's such a finely nuanced performance. Every character, it seems, has his/her own voice and none of it is forced or awkward.
I don't know
There was a brief period I thought I wouldn't like this book. A lot of time was spent revisiting the initial infection time. I wanted the story to progress toward resolution, not revisit the past. However, not a word was wasted and it all come into play. I still liked The Passage better on the whole, but this book still remains a must-read.
