I’m still going strong with my 2012 reading goal and just finished up The Passage (which should really count as two books since it comes in at almost 750 pages). Somewhere along the way I discovered that I really like books that are: 1) Set in some sort of post-apocalyptic waste land; 2) Survival stories; 3) Include zombies (or in this case vampires). A book doesn’t need to include all three but if it does I’m hooked, and this book had all three. I really didn’t like the ending of this book at all and felt like it was a huge let down – I had committed to 700+ pages and I deserved a decent ending. Then I learned that the book is actually part of a trilogy and the crappy ending was magically transformed into a cliff hanger!
