Publisher's Summary

Amy Harper Bellafonte is six years old, and her mother thinks she's the most important person in the whole world. She is.... Anthony Carter doesn't think he could ever be in a worse place than Death Row. He's wrong.... FBI agent Brad Wolgast thinks something beyond imagination is coming. It is.... The Passage.
Deep in the jungles of eastern Colombia, Professor Jonas Lear has finally found what he's been searching for - and wishes to God he hadn't. In Memphis, Tennessee, a six-year-old girl called Amy is left at the convent of the Sisters of Mercy and wonders why her mother has abandoned her. In a maximum security jail in Nevada, a convicted murderer, Giles Babcock, has the same strange nightmare, over and over again, while he waits for a lethal injection. In a remote community in the California mountains, a young man called Peter waits for his beloved brother to return home - so he can kill him. Bound together in ways they cannot comprehend, for each of them a door is about to open into a future they could not have imagined.
And a journey is about to begin. An epic journey that will take them through a world transformed by man's darkest dreams, to the very heart of what it means to be human. And beyond. The Passage.

I normally buy unabridged versions of audio-books as I prefer to listen to all an authors words not just what an editor decides so I was slightly miffed to realise I had bought the abridged version of The Passage. I have, however read some reviews that the book is perhaps too long. The abridged version though really keeps a great pace and I found it incredibly difficult to stop listening. The story is just fantastic with wonderful characters and I cant wait for Justin Cronin to write the rest of the trilogy.

Resident Evil but better !!!!

Just finished the abridged version of this book .. I was actually late for work sitting in the car park waiting to hear the last 15 mins. It seems to have brought together elements of a number of sci fi horrors together with a good story to explain WHY?, but the whole thing is a success and well worth the Listen ..I'm even thinking of buying the unabridged version to do it all again
