Jaime Agusto Zobel de Ayala, the big boss of Ayala Corporation, mentions The Passage by Justin Cronin as one of his favorite book this year (2010). I agree.
He also introduce me to reading the Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. And this Cronin’s book is also a trilogy.
“A military experiment gone wrong leads to a post-apocalyptic world where only the fittest survive. It is an epic of sorts and as much a story of survival as it is about the dangers of unfettered science. What kept me riveted was its cinematic sweep and its surprisingly engaging prose. Part thriller, part adventure but with well-written characters. It keeps you fascinated from beginning to end. However, expect much carnage as hunter and prey twist and turn throughout.”
