I could have sworn I saw August announced as the release date earlier, but I guess I can wait a couple more months.
I looked it up a couple of weeks ago and it did say August, 2012. Oh well, I plan to reread The Passage anyway, and I've just acquired Guillermo del Toro's The Strain trilogy which looks pretty good.

The Strain is good but it's more action-packed and cinematic. The Passage's writing is better, but if you go into The Strain expecting a fun action vampire movie in book form, you'll enjoy it. The Strain reads almost like a novelization of a Del Toro movie that doesn't exist.

Yep I originally saw August too but the new dates official I got it from Justin's Twitter feed he doesn't explain why the change There is an exclusive extract in this weeks Entertainment weekly featuring Alicia hopefully it will make its way online as we can't get EW down here. The new cover is nice

Oh, yeah. This book was amazing. I listened to it on audio from the library. Isn't Ridley Scott doing the movie version?
Ridley Scott's company optioned the book, but it isn't clear yet whether he plans to direct a movie version of it himself, produce it while someone else (maybe Tony) directs, or develop it for TV. His company produced (or co-produced, can't remember) the Starz version of Pillars of the Earth. Personally, I think a TV miniseries on a premium channel would be a better fit for this book than a 2 hour movie adaptation.

Just a note that The Passage appears to be on sale downunder it's at Kobo and Borders for $4.99, I listened to it the first time round but am thinking of picking it up as an ebook to prepare for the sequel

Justin reads an extract from The Twelve



Unfortunately it's the same extract that's been circulating for a while and doesn't feature any previous characters.

The Passage by Justin Cronin

Hi anyone read this book yet? I'm about a third of the way through and i'm pretty impressed with it... an epic on the new face of vampires.


any thoughts on this?

I think there might already be a thread on this but I'm not sure.

I'm currently on my second read-through, getting ready for the second book next week. I agree, it's great. More of a literary take on vampires.

I read it. Thought the beginning was great - maybe the 1st 3rd to half (can't quite remember), then kinda shifts gears big time and I was less impressed after said shift.

Ya, don't get me wrong. I didn't hate it after the shift. Felt kind of disappointed though, as I was really looking forward to see how it all played out at that point in time. Plus I was invested and then kinda 'poof', gone.

Once the final book is published maybe I will give the Passage another go directly followed up with the next 2.
