In his internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed novel The Passage Justin Cronin constructed an unforgettable world transformed by a government experiment gone horribly wrong Now the scope widens and the intensity deepens as the epic story surges forward with The Twelve In the present day as the man made apocalypse unfolds three strangers navigate the chaos Lila a doctor and an expectant mother is so shattered by the spread of violenc Looking back at it I’m not even sure why I read this book The Passage left so little impression on me that I remembered almost nothing about it and could barely muster the energy to look on line for a summary of it So why read another 500 pages of that story Maybe it was the hype Or because I’m such a sucker for post apocalyptic storiesActually I now think that these books are like one of those B level restaurants that you end up eating at all the time but you don’t really know why The food is just OK and the price is right and it’s close to your house and you never got a nasty case of the screaming greasies after eating there but it’s not a place you’d recommend to any of your friends or pass up a decent frozen pizza for a meal there Much like one of these middle of the road restaurants provides gut pack for your belly these books are gut pack for the mind It’s not terrible but you can think of a lot better optionsWhich is weird because it’s a horror novel going for epic scale with no shortage of blood and monsters so you’d think it’d elicit some kind of response Instead it just kept reminding me of other things I liked A post apocalyptic world with a huge battle between good and evil is satisfying in The Stand Playing with the idea of different strains of vampires is done much better in Scott Snyder’s American Vampire comics The crazy vampire lady concept was a lot fun when Drusilla did it in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blade wielding Alicia certainly resembles Alice in the Resident Evil films You know a book isn’t entertaining you much when you start daydreaming about watching Resident Evil movies instead of reading itI don’t know if it’s because of his background writing the Serious Lit A Chur I haven’t read any of his other books but it felt like Cronin glumly slogged through this and that his pulse rate never jumped once If you’re going to write a post apocalyptic novel there needs to be a certain amount of inappropriate excitement involved I read something by Stephen King once where he talked about taking grim satisfaction in destroying the world in The Stand and when you read that you can feel the dark glee he took in just smashing the whole thing Cronin just doesn't seem like he’s that into it Why bother writing the end of civilization if you’re not gonna have some fun with itPart of the problem may be that Cronin skips over that phase for the most part He showed us the beginnings of the vampire plague but then jumped forward by decades so we never really got to see things come undone I think it’s telling that the part I enjoyed the most in both books was the glimpse we got of the world going belly up during the outbreak with Kittridge Danny the autistic bus driver and all the others That’s the one part of the book where the characters seemed distinctly different from one another and where there’s some real passion flowing Even though I found the character of Lila extremely annoying because a pregnant surgeon who avoids dealing the with the on going apocalypse by going crazy town banana pants and acting like nothing is wrong should be the first one to get her blood drained at least she evoked some kind of reaction from me Whereas the other characters in the book were essentially a big shrugThis book is such a yawn that I had a hard time deciding on whether to give it 2 or 3 stars I finally decided that giving it 2 stars would actually mean that I cared enough to downgrade it But I don’t This thing is the epitome of average so 3 stars it is
