The Passage

Blogroll Me!
I am halfway through The Passage by Justin Cronin. It is much like reading a Stephen King Horror novel. It is an escape. I usually don't need to escape, but this summer I am going through a difficult transition and anything that can divert my attention from my upcoming move is a blessing. This book is so popular that I was about number 400 on a waiting list. The library purchased 80 some of them, so my wait was not more than a few weeks. I think I can say that the archetype vampire has been reinvented in the 21st century without giving away too much of the story. It is shocking to me that there is so much attention on vampirism these days. Perhaps the consumptive society we have made just calls for vampires to be popular.
