An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy—abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape—but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.

Although I didn't buy this book from iBooks, I have read it and think it's probably one of the best books I've read in the past couple of years. The second part of the book seemed a bit disjointed but the authors second book in the series goes into more detail about the 'middle' part of the story. Anyway, read it, you'll be staying up late on a night to get through it as quick as you can. Five out of five. Looking forward to the next installment.
Can't wait for the next one
I read this last summer when it came out and I was transfixed. Justin Cronin has created an amazing world and populated it with engaging, fully-realized characters. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
was fantastic. Justin Cronin is a genius. Greatest vampire book ever written.
