Fantastic story. can't wait for the last one. Thank you author and the great narrayor
I finished The Passage and couldn't wait to get started on The Twelve. The narration is superb, Scott Brick has the perfect voice for this and is so easy to listen to. Loved everything about it and now have the final book in my basket and am waiting for my next credit to appear any day now.
Earphones are charged up and at the ready - can't wait to listen to the final part of this trilogy.
The second book in The Passage trilogy improves on the excellent first, drawing the various characters out and giving them compelling arcs.
Whilst still a very long read (listen!?) this book is faster paced than the first, with altogether more happening throughout.
Cannot recommend highly enough, but I would still suggest listening at 1.25x pace as, at normal speed, the narration can be a tad ponderous
Bring on the City of Mirrors!!
"Flawless performance of a fantastic book"
Flyers! Where to start with my review? Firstly, Scott Brick is an excellent narrator. He brings characters to life, he creates images in my mind that I wouldn't particularly get from reading the book.
Secondly, I have never cried over a book before... until now. I feel a deep connection with the characters and even on my second read through I cried at the second to last chapter of The Twelve.
In preparation for the third and final book (which has been released today) I have listened back through The Passage and The Twelve and both have been just as good, if not better than the first time I listened to them.
Definitely my favourite book trilogy of all time.
"Equally as good as The Passage."
As I enjoyed The Passage so much I thought The Twelve may be disappointing . I needn't have worried as it was equally as good and has left me longing for the third part. Not long now - can't wait. These books are by far the best I have read in a long time.
"Intriguing - captured my attention"
I thoroughly enjoyed this the second in the post apocalyptic series. Many unexpected twists. I liked the format of the story - tales within tales.
"Needed to listen to the passage again before this."
I would recommend this to a friend who has read the first in the trilogy, "The Passage" but would suggest if there has been a gap to re read the first again. With a gap between publication and many different characters I got confused. I've made a mental note that when the third is released to listen to the first two back to back again first.
Didn't have any particular favourites. Tried not to in case something bad happened to the lol!
I love Scott brick as a narrator and hope he reads the final one when published too.
"I'm so pissed!"
I was soooooo looking forward to reading book 3 the last in the trilogy... But it hasn't been written yet!!!!!!!! Come on Justin, get your finger out, I need to know.
"Starting to think of other things to do..........."
l am certainly not in a rush to get to part 3 of this trilogy
"Omg do have to stick with this book."
Was this worth reading, yes but you really had to hold in there and be patient for it to pay off. I loved the first book this one was much tougher to stick with I really hope the third one is back on pace.
Excellent narration as before and recording quality was very good.
