The Passage - Justin Cronin (4.5 Stars)

Hat tip to my brother for recommending this book to me.

The book is set in a post-apocalyptic world where an army experiment has failed with terrible consequences. The book starts just before everything goes wrong and we get some sense of the people involved and their motivations. The story then jumps forward 100 years and we see the remains of humanity and what it has become.

This book seemed to take a little while to get going but when the action kicked in it was very dramatic. It is a vampire story but not Twilighty in anyway. Some stuff I did find a bit odd e.g. the whole Sister Lacey storyline but it is a very engaging story and well worth a read.

4.5 Stars :)
