    Under the Dome de Stephen King (jlparent)
    jlparent: The Passage reminded me greatly of "Under the Dome", with its intense look at how people cope in a 'new' world. Obviously it's also is hugely reminiscent of "The Stand" as already recommended.

Oh sweet baby Jesus

I could not put this book down. For the last several nights, I've managed 4-5 hours of sleep because I was compelled to keep reading. Very few authors do this to me (Patrick Rothfuss and Tiffany Reisz come to mind as far as addictions go), so when I say I was hooked, I mean it. This is beautiful apocalyptic science fantasy and a more realistic view of survival in a world that's gone to hell. You get the genesis, the cause, and the effects of a government experiment gone horrifically awry, and a healthy dose of complicated characters. I fell in love with so many of them. I truly can't wait to continue the saga. ( )

This book was completely an adventure to read. I started it without reading the synopsis, went in with no expectations, and was constantly surprised (in a good way) by the circumstances Justin Cronin thought up to put these characters through. Very wordy and very lengthy, which a lot of the time are characteristics that turn me off from a book, but the slow, winding way the story unfolded here create a comfortable atmosphere to really get to know and care about each character (of which there are MANY) and obfuscate which of the countless little details could crop up later in the story. You feel like you're truly along for the ride throughout the book. An unexpected bombshell at the ending ensures that I'll be reading the next one for sure.

Took me two months to read this, but the amount of time feels appropriate and I don't mind at all. ( )

I have to agree with the other reviewers. I really wanted to like this book and for the first bit, I enjoyed it quite a bit. I slogged my way through the middle and then perked back up towards the end. When I realized I had invested 900 pages of a trilogy I didn't care about I got sad and a little angry. It was ok. It wasn't terrible but I will not likely ever read the other two.

What can I say about this book? I have to read the next one!!!!! ( )
  nab6215 | Jan 18, 2022 |
This is an epic and part of the first in a trilogy. There will be other reviews of this that go into great detail. All I can say is that after the first few pages I felt at home. The prose is beautiful at times and the characters feel like old friends you haven't met yet. Thrilling. ( )

I turned The Passage's pages feverishly to find out what happened next.
afegit per simon_carr | editaThe Observer, Alice Fisher (Jul 18, 2010)
 
Cronin leaps back and forth in time, sprinkling his narrative with diaries, ­e-mail messages, maps, newspaper articles and legal documents. Sustaining such a long book is a tough endeavor, and every so often his prose slackens into inert phrases (“his mind would be tumbling like a dryer”). For the most part, though, he artfully unspools his plot’s complexities, and seemingly superfluous details come to connect in remarkable ways.

When all's said and done, The Passage is a wonderful idea for a book that – like too many American TV series – knows how good it is and therefore outstays its welcome. There are enough human themes (hope, love, survival, friendship, the power of dreams) to raise it well above the average horror, but its internal battle between the literary and the schlock will, I
 
T MAY already have the Stephen King stamp of approval and the Ridley Scott movie-script treatment but American author Justin Cronin's 800-page blockbuster The Passage comes from humble beginnings.

"Every book starts somewhere and this came from a dare of a nine-year-old child," he says of his daughter Iris, who wanted a story where a young girl saves the world.

When I have seen by Time's fell hand defac'd
the rich proud cost of outworn buried age;
When sometimes lofty towers I see down-raz'd,
And brass eternal slave to mortal rage;
When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the watery main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store;
When I have seen such interchange of state,
Or state itself confounded to decay;
Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate
That Time will come and take my love away.

-William Shakespeare, Sonnet 64
