It’s 1:00 a.m. and I have to be up early, but I am still reading this book, I CAN’T PUT IT DOWN! What is wrong with me? I don’t want to do anything but read The Passage (Ballantine, $25) by Justin Cronin. I don’t want to go out, I don’t want to go to work, I don’t want to sleep. If you think you don’t like horror fiction, think again--I guarantee that once you read the first few pages of this book you, too, will be hooked. Cronin’s is a story about a virus the army hopes will turn soldiers into super-weapons. The only problem is that, once infected, humans become super-scary, bloodsucking creatures. When the American population is exposed to and then ravaged by the virus, only small enclaves of people survive. The tale of how these survivors go on is utterly enthralling, adventurous, creepy, and exciting.
