The Passage, by Justin Cronin

This book reminded me a LOT of Stephen King’s The Stand. Some sort of vampire-creating virus gets loose, destroying the earth, people head to Las Vegas, that type of thing.

And coming in at nearly 800 pages, the length is a lot like The Stand, too.

But even with that, and maybe it’s the oxycodone talking, but I really enjoyed it. The time scope is actually longer than King’s work, and the writing is more character-driven and interesting.

Fun book for summer reading.
