I loved Stephen King's The Stand, so I had high hopes for the Passage, which had a similar early plot. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this book. I found Cronin's characters mostly unlikeable and joyless, the pacing of the novel dragged, and The Passage lacked the magical sense of hope that made The Stand (and its ilk) so much more compelling. By the time I was two-thirds of the way through this hefty tome, I just didn't really care what happened next.
