Publisher's Summary

Amy Harper Bellafonte is six years old, and her mother thinks she's the most important person in the whole world. She is.... Anthony Carter doesn't think he could ever be in a worse place than Death Row.... He's wrong. FBI agent Brad Wolgast thinks something beyond imagination is coming.... It is. The Passage.
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 called 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.

The main reason i gave this 5 stars is not because it was one of the best books i have read, although it certainly is great, but because this book is so bloody long and it never loses you, and there is no way for myself that it seems that long... great....

Listen, hold your breath, she is coming

I read this book a few years ago and couldn't put it down, then bought the audible edition in preparation for the sequel "The Twelve", to be released in Australia soon. I expected to fast forward through much of it, just wanting to re-familiarise myself with the storylines, plot and characters. I have been unable to separate myself from my iphone ever since. Scott Brick does a remarkable job narrating this complex, deeply human, apocolyptic but somehow real story of humankind destroying itself while trying to save itself. The story itself is vast in scope and scale taking the listener from the beginning of the end, travelling on waves of , connection, loss and grief while twisting through the horror of isolation and desolation. The novel leaves no stone unturned in its intricate and amazingly imagined evolution to a time when just a few people remain. The reader knows 'she is coming' but those who remain are yet to realise that their safe place, their world (enriched by just the right amount of modernity to make it believable) is about to become very, very different....
I had rated "The Passage" as one of my favourite sci-fi reads of all time and it still is, but listening to it has coloured in and defined the story, made the characters seem like close relatives and I just can't wait to see them again in "The Twelve".
