‘The Passage’ Justin Cronin


I’m a bit late to the party on this one! I want to say, right at the start of this review, this could easily have been a 5 star review!

I didn’t enjoy this character driven thriller as much as most just because of my own personal head space right now. I can totally see myself reading this in a less mentally taxing stage of my life and awarding 5 stars.

This is an apocalyptic horror/thriller which is a genre I love. The main characters are a depressed FBI agent and a little girl who we can see immediately is a special character with unusual importance in the fate of the world. Enter a vampire creating virus! Love it. This is so well written and I bow to Cronin’s use of character development!

The writing is very dense though and I did feel a bit like I was wading through deep water. But I understand the importance of the back stories of the characters… fleshing then out as it were. So I think it’s simply down to my own mental fatigue that I didn’t award ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and not the book at all!
