The Passage, by Justin Cronin

I was curious about this book since reading a few reviews in the WSJ and Washington Post, both favorable.  For the first third of the book I could see why it had received such good reviews.  The character development, sense of foreboding, overall storytelling, all were fantastic.  Then the book takes a strange jump 100 years in the future, and character development comes to a close.  I plowed through the rest of the book, but didn't enjoy it very much. 
I had no idea it was set up as a multi-volume (trilogy?) but I doubt if I'll continue with the series.
