Ros has already given you the last line, so I'm probably too late to 
save you checking that way, but I also have the Bantam hb and it is 
594 pages long.  As Ros said, you would *not* want to read _Passage_ 
unless you were sure you had every page!    Your post gave me the 
nicest flashback of reading the book pretty much straight through 
(though I did manage to put it down to sleep, I didn't while cooking 
dinner, at some risk to physical well-being), absolutely and 
completely engrossed.  For all I can see several faults with my 
critical mind, it still blows me away.
