REVIEW: THE STRAIN BY GUILLERMO DEL TORO


THE STRAIN
STRAIN TRILOGY BK 1
GUILLERMO DEL TORO & CHUCK HOGAN
GENRE: HORROR

SYNOPSIS

At New York's JFK Airport an arriving Boeing 777 taxiing along a runway suddenly stops dead. All the shades have been drawn, all communication channels have mysteriously gone quiet. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of a CDC rapid-response team investigating biological threats, boards the darkened plane...and what he finds makes his blood run cold.

A terrifying contagion has come to the unsuspecting city, an unstoppable plague that will spread like an all-consuming wildfire—lethal, merciless, hungry...vampiric.

And in a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem an aged Holocaust survivor knows the war he has been dreading his entire life is finally here.





MY TAKE



I can't wait to read the next book in The Strain trilogy! From beginning to end, this book is 585 pages and I finished it in 3 short days. That is how engrossed I was with this story! The vampires in this story are of the terrifying variety with a twist.

Some have complained that this book reads more like a movie script, but I didn't find that to be so. I think some expect it to be as such just by seeing Guillermo Del Toro's name on the cover.

Highly recommended!
