The Twelve

The Twelve - Justin Cronin The Twelve by Justin Cronin is the long awaited sequel to The Passage which was a book I really enjoyed as Justin Cronin really brought the story and its characters to life, It was a book that I recommended to many as it was so well written.

So the long awaited sequel, The Twelve was a book I just could not wait to read. I had pre ordered my copy as just in case an apocalyptic event occurred and I would not make it to the bookstore!
Sadly to say I was disappointed with this Novel, it is nothing like the Passage. While the book starts out quite well the writing becomes repetitive. The book has way too many characters that are difficult to follow and I felt absolutely no connection or passion for any of them and to be honest was hoping a batch of virals would come along and weed out a few of these lifeless characters and inject a little bit of fear and action into a somewhat boring, overwritten and long tedious novel.

This is the second part of a trilogy but I doubt very much I will invest my money or time in the third book.
