I chose The Strain, a novel by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, because I’ve liked the films of del Toro. The Strain is the first book of a The Stain Trilogy.
I can tell you right away that I’m not going to read the other parts of the trilogy, The Fall and The Night Eternal. Vampire stories like The Strain are not for me. The atmosphere in the book was similar as in del Toro’s movies, oppressive. I did read the whole book, but it was quite hard. That’s about all I can say, I didn’t like.
