I have finished reading "The Passage" by Justin Cronin. There is so much to say about this novel. I couldn't put it down, though it is long, it compels you to keep reading. "I am Legend" meets "The Stand". The Passage is not your typical vampire novel. This novel is not on the same line as Twilight or True Blood. It is... about a military experiment gone very wrong, the end of the world as we know it. A great read!
