The Last Kind Words

The Twelve - Justin Cronin After The Passage introduced bio engineered vampires (virals) who unleash the apocalypse across America, Cronin has taken this environment and made it dull...

The book is far to long with characters who just blend into each other (Michael, Hollis, Peter, it also has one of the most annoying characters i've read this year Lila Kyle a pregnant surgeon in denial with the collapse of America and we have pages of her deciding what paint to buy for a nursery.

The jump between era's could have worked well but having characters fade away half way through never to return didnt work especially when it was the most interesting section of the book.

Perhaps this is just the slow middle book of the trilogy and the third will have a more epic feel, not sure if i have the will to find out.
