I just finished reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. WOW! There are 766 pages in this huge book. It took me longer then normal to read, but I LOVED it. If you are into vampires (not the pretty boy kind), human experimentation in medicine and a great cast of charters then this book may be for you. It kind of reminded me of the series Uglies by Scott Westerfeld but for a much more grown up audience. The book is big, heavy and long and I will not lie, sometimes I wish he could have hurried it up a bit. Overall it was a great read and I have heard a 2nd book will show up in 2012. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. Now back to Hautman his book Rag Man came in my mailbox today!!!
