Review: The Strain By: Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan

The Strain (The Strain Trilogy, #1)The Strain by Guillermo del Toro
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Want an intense thriller that you just can't put down? This is it!
Forget about Angel and all the friendly vamps that have entered into movies and books, this one takes you back to the orginal - to the fear, the hunger, the hunting, and the disease that marks them.
An airline goes down at JFK, everything is normal, until it shuts down completely. Blinds are drawn, no power, no air, no 911 calls from inside. Unlikely heroes enter into the book and a strange sense of doom is awaiting. Once the bodies are removed and put into morgues stranger things occur, like them rising.
I could not put this down. I was enthralled, horrified, and devoured the book (and the series) in no time. I am a big fan of del Toro and the deeper meaning within the characters, the images, and the story. With Halloween around the corner, I recommend this series to fill you with the spirit.
