Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

The story was very good, but the narrator had a lot of weird pauses in his reading. It was like random commas were thrown into the book and he was having to adjust for them.

First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

What made the experience of listening to The Passage the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the fact that I could sync my listening between my Kindle and my Audible account. The story is really good, very engrossing, so I did not want to put it down. Having the ability to both read and listen made the experience very enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Passage?

I do not want to write out the most memorable part as it would be a spoiler, but this author is very good at writing cliff-hangers. He does a good job at making you want to continue with the book so you can find out what happens next.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

The author is quite adept at presenting information in great detail. If you are a person who just wants the facts, and only the facts, this book may not be for you. The author includes a lot of extraneous information in his story-telling, but to me it seemed to fill out the story and make it more believable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The narrator has some of the worst inflection I have heard. He reads every sentence as if it is a life changing statement, as each one is of the utmost importance and has all the wonder of the world packed into it. Sometimes, a sentence is just a sentence. When I listen to an audio book, I like to hear some change in tone while the narrator is reading, but not full fledged heart-felt emotion with every.single.sentence.
