The Passage Trilogy by Justin Cronin

Hi Everyone,

Okay, so has anyone else read this trilogy? I didn't discover it until the third book was about to come out and I binge read all three of them. While I reading, I always thought that these books would make great films. I just don't know if they are a little too dark and gruesome for the big screen. Thoughts?

A little too dark and gruesome for the big screen? Apparently you are not familiar with Hollywood. Just kidding, but last weekend a film about a serial child killer broke all previous box office records for a fall release. Dark and Gruesome is what the big screen loves.

LOL! Very true! I can't say I am much for horror flicks. I think Cronin created a pretty compelling world.

I totally love the series! It's just so brutal in a kind of necessary way(?) Since the world they live and all. If it made to Hollywood I would have great expectations.
