The Passage

I finished reading Justin Cronin's THE PASSAGE over the weekend. It's a very impressive piece of work, and one that's very engaging and absorbing. For the first time in recent memory, I actually stayed up (very) late to read. I honestly can't remember the last time I traded sleep for a book.

At the risk of hyperbole, I'm going out on a limb and saying THE PASSAGE is my new favorite postapocalyptic novel, right up there with (and maybe even topping) both THE ROAD and THE STAND. Maybe it's the zesty new freshness, or maybe it's just because this book has the potential to reclaim the contemporary vampire from all of the glimmery romantic TWILIGHT angst and reclaim his true and rightful monstrosity.

My one big regret--the novel's the first in a trilogy and according to Cronin's interview on Amazon, we have to wait two years for the next one. Dang.
