    "Class act....Captivating"

    Justin Cronin is a master author who has got me hooked on a genre which I would have never read or lister to. Now I can't wait to start book 3!!!

    "Good but could do better . B-"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't think I could pin it down to just one. They all have a part to play.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The epilogue has a couple of smokey eyed moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I have enjoyed the first two books and I will be starting book three very soon.

    However, I do feel there is a little too much convenience in the story with certain elements. I don't want to provide any spoilers but Justin could have been less obvious in some of his plot choices and character arcs.

    Given the environment in which the story is set and the enemies the characters face, their ability to survive is borderline miraculous. Maybe in a post "Game of Thrones" era I expect more ruthlessness in the way major characters are dealt with.

    Even so it is a compelling story and one I would recommend to my family and friends.

    "Amazing!"

    I read the first two books of this trilogy a few years ago and enjoyed them so much I have re read them while waiting for the final instalment which I am about to start now. I highly recommend these books to anyone who loves intelligent well written adult horror fiction.

    "Great book"

    Initially I struggled with the narrator's staccato story telling style (sorry, unintentional alliteration) and put off listening to this book several times but once I got used to it I managed to immerse myself fully into the story. This book has definitely surpassed my expectations, overly anticipated books often disappoint but this one didn't. I particularity like Justin Cronin's writing style, the movement between time and characters could be confusing but instead it flowed easily creating a rich and meandering novel full of surprises. I can't wait for the next instalment.

    "Superb writing but a bit slow in places"

    There is no doubt that Cronin writes superbly and there are passages in this novel that are incredibly exciting and sometimes very emotionally affecting at the same time. I was genuinely in tears at least three times listening to this book. My only criticism is that at times it did feel a bit slow, but I wouldn't let that put you off - it is worth it for the overall experience. Scott Brick's reading of the novel is astonishingly good. I have actually tried to use some of his techniques in reading to my daughter and am enjoying the experience much more for it, so that is an unexpected bonus!
