Reviews

"[A] blockbuster."--The New York Times Book Review

"Mythic storytelling."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Magnificent . . . Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them. . . . The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King's apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy's The Road: a story about human beings trying to generate new hope in a world from which all hope has long since been burnt."--Time

"The type of big, engrossing read that will have you leaving the lights on late into the night."--The Dallas Morning News

"Addictive."--Men's Journal

"Cronin's unguessable plot and appealing characters will seize your heart and mind."--Parade

"Cronin has given us what could be the best book of the summer. Don't wait to dive into The Passage."--USA Today

"Great storytelling . . . vital, tender, and compelling."--O: The Oprah Magazine

"Cronin gets it just right; the combination of attentive realism and doomsday stakes makes for a mesmerizing experience."--Salon

"Magnificently unnerving . . . A The Stand-meets-The Road journey."--Entertainment Weekly

"Imagine Michael Crichton crossbreeding Stephen King's The Stand and Salem's Lot in that lab on Jurassic Park, with rich infusions of Robert McCammon's Swan Song, Battlestar Galactica and even Cormac McCarthy's The Road."--The Washington Post
