About this item

""It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born.""
First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear--of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.
As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he's done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey--spanning miles and decades--towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.
With The Passage, award-winning author Justin Cronin has written both a relentlessly suspenseful adventure and an epic chronicle of human endurance in the face of unprecedented catastrophe and unimaginable danger. Its inventive storytelling, masterful prose, and depth of human insight mark it as a crucial and transcendent work of modern fiction.

I'm not done yet, but so far this book is unreal. Fantastic character development along with a unique and page-turning plot. I'm usually good at knowing what is going to happen next, but this book keeps you on the edge of your seat guessing and biting your nails the entire time.

Kind of like a cross between "I Am Legend" and "Year Zero". Story of a military science experiment gone masively wrong. Imagine undying smart virus-infected vampires (not zombies), hunting the "last" bastion of humanity. Interesting conclusion, that left me wanting more...

This book is right up there with Stephen King's The Stand! It is, dare I say, the best apocalyptic book I've read. Go buy it now!!!
