Excellent book, but not for the faint of heart. I remember the first one had some slow parts, but I don't remember that in this book. Looking forward to the third (and sadly final) book.
This was a great continuation of The Passage trilogy. Justin Cronin has created an epic adventure with memorable characters and a gripping story.
Scott Brick could not have done a better job. His characters were dead on with my image of them and his performance was flawless. I know the third installment of this trilogy is not due but I'm on here tonight looking for more Scott Brick books.
Mr. Cronin's titles are pretty simple and that's the way it should be. Anything I would come up with would be too corny for this brilliant work.
Did I mention that I liked it?
John Hart's "The Last Child" doesn't disappoint. There were a lot of twists that I didn't see coming and I usually can predict them. You don't know the real story until the very last chapter.
Scott Sowers was a good choice for this southern story. He voices the characters just right. I do think he tends to enunciate words with a staccato. Listen (which I think you should) and you'll see what I mean.
It was a little slow to get started, but once it gets going, it doesn't let up.
Like others, I didn't think I was going to like the narrator. One of his voices definitely resembles a poor Dracula impression! Aside from the giggles I got every time he used that voice, I got to like him better.
I thought some of the sex was a little too graphic for my tastes and I wouldn't want my daughter to read it, but it wasn't enough to lower my rating.
Joe Bob says "check it out".
