    1. THE PASSAGE is a lot like the month of March It comes in like a vampire thriller and goes out like a batty soap opera And it s big Spreading its bat wings, it measures in at 766 pages or at least the ARC version does TWILIGHT this ain t, and regular vampire fare it isn t either It s a hodgepodge of Bram Stoker, Tom Clancy, Stephen King, and John Steinbeck one if by vampires, two if by military games, three if by bloodbath, and four if by brotherly melodrama.Overall I liked it Honest I THE PASSAG [...]


    2. Oh, The Passage You promised me such wonderful things with your sparkly cover, your titillating title a passage to WHERE , and your massive hype Also your sizable heft, as you are a large, obese book, full of words and things I figured if I didn t like you, I could use you to stone evil doers in some town square somewhere How could I turn you down Your promises, though, were only partially fulfilled While I enjoyed stoning people in the village square with you, your cover was simply too Oh, The [...]

    6. when i read horror, i m usually looking for 1 cheap thrills or 2 surreal and metaphysical weirdness or, best of all, 3 an epic full of dread and melancholy there is plenty of the first sort and so much of it is trash but fun can be had with trashy things and i m no snob the second type can be a little hard to find, but there s a lot to be had as well, if you look in the right places, especially the past but the third kind, that s the hardest, i ve only found a few Declare, It, when i re [...]
