PASSAGE is a long book, but then, it needed to be. Because there is a lot going on between it's covers, and it's an ultimately very satisfying and emotionally moving read. It's neatly divided into three parts. The first is a rather leisurely introduction, which establishes the important characters (all of whom have important functions in the plot), and their relationships with each other. The tension really begins in Part Two, which ends with a plot twist too devious to spoil. In Part Three, the book shifts into overdrive, and it all ends with a climax that I completely adored. I avoided reading this book for quite a while, because the subject matter of Near Death Experiences just didn't interest me, but I finally gave in and read the book, and I'm really glad that I did!

Disappointing

It's a fascinating subject to be sure. But Willis is lost here. Something else- it seems that when Willis writes with an American accent instead of a British one, the magic dies... Based on the other Willis books I've read (5), and what other reviewers said here, ...
It's a fascinating subject to be sure. But Willis is lost here. Something else- it seems that when Willis writes with an American accent instead of a British one, the magic dies... Based on the other Willis books I've read (5), and what other reviewers said here, I got the book. I am VERY disappointed. The main lead in the book is a one-dimensional creature and the behavior of the supporting cast is not logical. Chapter one could be Chapter fifteen and nobody would know the difference. I am VERY VERY disappointed.

    400 pages too many

    This would have made a great short story - repeat - short story. Willis spends half the book having her main character avoid other characters by hiding in stairwells, and running around a maze of hallways in this hospital setting. The prose is basic and boring. The premise - having a near death experience on the Titanic is interesting, but the whole Titanic thing has been so overdone I just couldn't get excited about this either. Sorry folks. If you want to read this save your money and borrow it from the library.

    more from this reviewer

    Tedious and Boring with no payoff at the end.

    Boring, horrible characters. Monotonous dialogue and descriptions. Hundreds of pages where NOTHING HAPPENS at all.
