King Recommends THE PASSAGE

Wow, Cemetary Dance is really excited about their new novel "The Passage" by Justin Cronin's. I haven't read this, but with the King recommendation, it sure looks like it will be going on my reading list. Here's what Stephen King
"Every so often a novel-reader's novel comes along: an enthralling, entertaining story wedded to simple, supple prose, both informed by tremendous imagination. Summer is the perfect time for such books, and this year readers can enjoy the gift of Justin Cronin’s The Passage. Read fifteen pages and you will find yourself captivated; read thirty and you will find yourself taken prisoner and reading late into the night. It has the vividness that only epic works of fantasy and imagination can achieve. What else can I say? This: read this book and the ordinary world disappears."
The book is $27.00
Also. . . check out the link from Lilja's library where King surprises Cronin on the phone. Cool.

  1. Page three, third paragraph: 'a dashboard like a SPACESHIP and cars seats like BUTTER?!?!' Captivated? Prisoner? Really, Mr. King? Really now? Well, the ordinary world certainly disappears alright, too bad it has taken some of you with it.
