The passage

This was a gripping read, it wasn't exactly literature but the writing was exciting & sometimes beautiful. I enjoy Joan Didion & Isaac Bashevis Singer amongst others but I also like to read pure pleasure, Cronin's a good writer. The characters were well written, he kept the pace & tension up, you actually care about the characters. This book manages to remain totally original in a market saturated with zombie & vampire fiction, not to mention apocalyptic survivalist fiction. I like Steven King, I've always thought his books were a good quick read, his stories are good but often his characters are not well written, i enjoy King for fun but I think Justin Cronin's work surpasses kings & I think he's more like Peter Straub, M. R. James and Niel Gaiman. If you enjoy quality horror ( not a gore fest ) and adventure & a better take on the usual vampire cliches.

Brilliant

If you liked Stephen Kings The Stand you will love this book. Apocalyptic and epic. Can't wait for part 2 of the trilogy.
