Leave your thoughts about The Twelve (The Passage, #2) by Justin Cronin, as you are reading, just make sure you say what chapter & page you are on so that there are no spoilers. This way we can discuss as we read without ruining the ending for anyone. :)

Mia (MiaPea) | 359 comments I'm already on page 136, as I couldn't resist starting this book already! As with The Passage, I have a teensy bit of trouble with the transitions, but I'm finding this an easier read (after the 1st 20 pages or so of orienting myself) and very compelling.

Mia (MiaPea) | 359 comments Page 256 - really enjoying getting the back-story on a number of characters. He does still throw out a few teasers about what's going on, and I suspect that various questions won't be answered until book 3, but, so far, I'm enjoying it.

Mia (MiaPea) | 359 comments I finished today, but hesitate to comment until others have finished. I found it satisfying. :-) Now...on to The Dovekeepers!

Just started today & I'm excited!

This is so disjointed. I just finished the section with Grey Painting Lila's nursery. Maybe cause its been 2 years since the 1st one came out but I find it hard to remember all the characters.

Mia (MiaPea) | 359 comments I did a quick re-skim of book 1 before The Twelve. I found that I started getting more oriented and seeing how the characters/time periods fit together about midway through the book.

half way through it & now i'm hooked! So many twists & turns & surprises i'm just floored. I still hate that there are so many characters to keep track of. its tough especially since this jumps around in time.

Mia (MiaPea) | 359 comments Yes - it does jump around in time and it took me some time to get oriented, too. But then it sort of settles down a bit more into one time period and then you get hooked, right? (Funny - I usually don't have trouble keeping track of characters, but I seem to tangle Hollis, Michael, and Greer in my head at times!)

Diane | 9 comments so I just finished it and really enjoyed it. Due to its intensity I had to read it in pieces as I was always afraid of what was going to happen next. I am happy that Lila turned out the way that she did for some reason that character hooked me. Now to wait for the third installment.

Mia (MiaPea) | 359 comments Yay, Diane finished! I'm going to have to re-read the whole synopsis before book 3, because I need to keep events clear in my mind. I was also happy that Lila turned out the way she did. :-)
