This novel is about nothing...the typical messiah stuff wrapped around nonsensical futuristic gobbly-gook! The reading is surprisingly poor...good readers that seem to forget thei characters from chapter to chapter and sometimes page to page. Avoid this noel! Ender's Game is 100x more interesting!
I almost always finish a book. However, after 15 hours of non-stop nothingness I had to put down The Passage. Next time I pick it up will be moments before take off on a red-eye flight across several time zones. I am assured of almost immediate sleep without the hang over left by meds.
Short and sweet: this novel is absolutely awful. If you liked Brown's previous novels, do yourself a favor and DO NOT buy this novel.
Listening to the excellent narration was a pleasure. (However, I kept thinking I was following Alex Cross, not Agent Pierce.)
The story is interesting, but not compelling. The bad-guys are bad, but not interesting. The good-guys are predictable, but not too bright.
All in all it is a good time. I suggest you stop listening before the Epilogue.
