The Passage by Justin Cronin

The Passage

The first 300 pages of this book may be the best fiction I have ever read in my life. Cronin has a gift for characterization: you will find the characters real enough to invite to dinner and you will want to include the death row inmate and the prostitute because he portrays them so sympathetically.

The middle section of the book was muddled and convoluted.

By the last 100 pages, I was rolling my eyes at the stupidity of the plot.
