The Twelve (The Passage Trilogy #2) by Justin Cronin
The Twelve (The Passage Trilogy #2)

BillMaine, March 16, 2012

Coming out in December of 2012? Come on! We can't wait that long. I'm over 60; never liked horror-type books. I live in the land of Stephen King and, although my sons begged me to read at least one of his books to see what all the excitement was about (Tommyknockers...what a mistake that was), I've never read another of Mr. King's books of that genre.

Then Mr. Cronin writes The Passage. I loved it. I couldn't put it down. I bought an extra edition just so I could give it away (yes, to one of my sons so he knew how this type of book should really be written.)

Rush this into print. We can stand a few typos and misplaced commas. But we really need to jump into the next segment. And please don't make us wait equally as long for part 3.
