Deep in the jungles of eastern Colombia, Professor Jonas Lear has finally found what he's been searching for - and wishes to God he hadn't. In Memphis, Tennessee, a six-year-old girl called Amy is left at the convent of the Sisters of Mercy and wonders why her mother has abandoned her. In a maximum security jail in Nevada, a convicted murderer, Giles Babcock, has the same strange nightmare, over and over again, while he waits for a lethal injection. In a remote community in the California mountains, a young man called Peter waits for his beloved brother to return home - so he can kill him. Bound together in ways they cannot comprehend, for each of them a door is about to open into a future they could not have imagined.
And a journey is about to begin. An epic journey that will take them through a world transformed by man's darkest dreams, to the very heart of what it means to be human. And beyond. The Passage.

I normally buy unabridged versions of audio-books as I prefer to listen to all an authors words not just what an editor decides so I was slightly miffed to realise I had bought the abridged version of The Passage. I have, however read some reviews that the book is perhaps too long. The abridged version though really keeps a great pace and I found it incredibly difficult to stop listening. The story is just fantastic with wonderful characters and I cant wait for Justin Cronin to write the rest of the trilogy.

Resident Evil but better !!!!
Just finished the abridged version of this book .. I was actually late for work sitting in the car park waiting to hear the last 15 mins. It seems to have brought together elements of a number of sci fi horrors together with a good story to explain WHY?, but the whole thing is a success and well worth the Listen ..I'm even thinking of buying the unabridged version to do it all again
