Beschreibung

“It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born.”
First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.
As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.
With The Passage, award-winning author Justin Cronin has written both a relentlessly suspenseful adventure and an epic chronicle of human endurance in the face of unprecedented catastrophe and unimaginable danger. Its inventive storytelling, masterful prose, and depth of human insight mark it as a crucial and transcendent work of modern fiction.

Kritikerstimmen

“Read this book and the ordinary world disappears.” (Stephen King)
“Magnificently unnerving . . . The Stand meets The Road.” (Entertainment Weekly)
“Justin Cronin has written a wild, headlong, sweeping extravaganza of a novel. The Passage is the literary equivalent of a unicorn: a bona fide thriller that is sharply written, deeply humane, ablaze with big ideas, and absolutely impossible to put down.” (Jennifer Egan, author of A Visit from the Goon Squad)

I think I have never had a book more times in my hands than this one. It always found me no matter if I was at a train station or at a local bookstore it was just there and it wanted to be read. I finally gave in and started listening to it.

THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS:


Initially I was confused. Every chapter is written from a different point of view but it's interesting nonetheless. Especially Amy warmed my heart and the connection she has to Wolgast who became a somewhat father substitute was relatable and heartwarming. This made the first quarter of the book worth reading.

From there on I was just bored out of my mind and I don't even know why. Justin Cronin proved in the first part of the story that he is able to write a good story and characters that you can relate to. But this? I couldn't care less about the colonists. Every chapter I was hoping those damn virals would finally destroy this camp but noooo...

Luckily Amy showed up again and then it was an up and down for me.

It wasn't a bad book but it could have been cut down a bit.

At this point I'm not sure if I will continue with this series.

Tolles Hörbuch, sehr gut gelesen!

Nachdem die deutsche Version gekürzt ist, habe ich die englische gehört und habe es nicht bereut.
Wenn man halbwegs gut Englisch kann kommt man gut rein, weil es wirklich sehr gut gelesen ist. Ein paar Vokabel habe ich nachgeschlagen und mir gemerkt, ...auch kein Schaden.
Die Geschichte ist toll und ich mag nicht nur SF, Fantasy und schon gar keine Vampirgeschichten!
