Once upon a time, said Abraham Setrakian’s grandmother, there was a giant. Young Abraham’s eyes brightened, and immediately the cabbage borscht in the wooden bowl got tastier, or at least less garlicky. He was a pale boy, underweight and sickly. His grandmother, intent on fattening him, sat across from him while he ate his soup, entertaining him by spinning a yarn

Comments to eBook The Strain: Book One of The Strain Trilogy

I think that people too often attempt to apply harsh literary standards to fiction and what is essentially supposed to be simple entertainment and that often leads to bad reviews. If you are used to reading Moby Dick and the Scarlet Letter, then books like this might be tripe to you. However, I was thoroughly entertained and I really enjoyed the story! What I liked best was the intro. This book had one of the most intriguing, engrossing, and scary intros I have read in a very long time!

The only problem I had with this book was 1) the pacing...it seemed to bog down at times and lose its momentum...and 2) I had seen the concept before (Blade II). That being said, I've already purchased book 2 and will be finishing the story with book 3!!

I really wish I could give this book a better review. I thought the first book in the series was a lot of fun and the second one was decent enough to prompt me to buy the 3rd. Sadly, though, I think this series dies with a whimper.

I want to avoid spoilers, but let me just say that books like this tend to be written to maximize the final showdown/climax type of thing and sometimes that works, but when the build-up and payoff don't connect it's worse than just having a more real, honest, or nebulous ending (the kind of thing you would see in more "serious" fiction). That was my feeling about this one...Hogan seems like a decent storyteller, but this was combination of dialing it in and trying too hard.

Lastly, I REALLY hate to say this, but this is a rare example in which the television show is better than the books.

I read this series long before they made a TV show about it, in fact, I still haven't actually seen the show (but I'd like to!).

I really enjoyed the first two books, but the third book fell short for me. Fet and Gus were the only two people that I cared about at that point because the rest of the characters, whether it was through their attitudes or their storyline, became boring and unlikeable. I did finish the book, but I found myself wishing that it was shorter or that I was closer to the end, it wasn't holding my attention like the first two in the series.

Speaking of the ending, I won't give it away but it was very predictable.

If you enjoy the show (hopefully it's fairly similar to the books!), then please give the book series a try! I know the third book may fall a little short in quality but as a whole the series is very interesting and well researched. The first two books build an amazing world inside your head and you'll want to find out what happens next, just be warned that the third book may disappoint slightly.

NON-Spoiler
I felt the first two books were great. The events carried me through and I almost read the series in one sitting. I felt the same way about book 3, until I got to the ending. I felt that, by the time I got to the ending, there were so many holes that I was left wanting. Sure, the story ended, but the plot at the end was riddled with questions. I actually felt that I should have not read book three and just waited for the third season for some closure.

SPOILER:
What I feel killed book three for me was when after the nuclear bomb detonated. Michael (the murdered one) shows up with the other angel and takes the combined form of the Master (Ozryel) and resurrects him. Ozryel, along with the other ancients, were responsible for the woes experienced by the human race. Heck, the Master was responsible for innumerable deaths and suffering of human beings. And then what?? They fly back up to heaven. That's it.

The Epilogue was nice, but it couldn't fill the whole I felt after reading that the angel was let back into heaven. Made no sense to me. If I would have known about that kind of ending I would have stopped at book 2. Next time I'll check the reviews.

I bought the 1st two books and loved them. A lot of the things that go on in the TV show are there but, some are different. So, when I purchased the 3rd installment of The Strain, I immediately started reading on my Kindle. I just couldn't put it down! I had to stop and charge my Kindle right in the midst of so much tension and excitement. I actually read it in 3 days. That's how good it is! I don't want to reveal some of the plot line but, I am amazed about how the Ancients and the Master were created!! I love these three books and if there are any more books by this author, I will buy them immediately! Buy it! Don't listen to some of these bad reviews. If you want to read a book that keeps you intensely interested, this is IT!
