Just read the Twelve, and then re-read the Passage. Obviously should have had the patience to do it the other way around, but I will say it actually made me appreciate the Passage more. I have a couple questions - I apologize if the answers were explicitly stated somewhere in the book or in another thread:
1. How did Hollis survive the Roswell Massacre?
2. Is Wolgast a ghost, familiar or viral? If a viral, when did he get turned?
3. And, finally, what's the deal with Carter and the boat - I read this super-fast and I sort of don't get it? I'll take anyone's best theories.
