The Strain: Book One Of The Strain Trilogy

by Guillermo Del Toro

HarperCollins | September 20, 2011 | Trade Paperback

The Strain: Book One Of The Strain Trilogy is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.

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 all-consuming wildfire—–lethal, merciless, hungry . . . vampiric. And in a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, an aged Holocaust survivor knows that the war he has been dreading his entire life is finally here.

In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country. In two months . . . the world.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I did not like this book The online book reviews for The Strain have been great. I beg to diifer. I found the first book in the trilogy tedious. It starts slow and never really picks up. The authors seem to love to write and write, but there were many runs of pages where little happened, where the story did not advance. Their writing was pretty average at best. I found the characters dull and the so-called horror rather mundane. It was all I could do to get to the end of this book, and nothing will convince me to read number two or three of the trilogy.

Editorial Reviews

“He elevated gothic horror to art. . . . Bilingual, bicultural, multigenre, he has a voice that feels both fresh and ancient.”
