Easy reading, somehow i kept on choosing these kind of book lately. Oh well..there's time for everything.The funny thing about this book is how it made rethink 2012 the movie. Reading about children being sent away to safety during the war reminded me that chilldren are the crucial link to mankind's future. The Passage by Justin Cronin used it also numbers of other WWII stories including Narnia. When the goimg gets tough you jolly well protect your future by protecting your children. This is where 2012 amazes me. They protect the art and the animal but they didn't protect mankind by alloting significant number of children? Doesn't sound like thinking to the future to me.Anyway this has became such an OT review I better stop.
