What do you think?

The Strain, by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan

I’m in the mood for a good Halloween read, and I came across this book.

Quoted from Amazon:

“The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

The Strain

They have always been here. Vampires. In secret and in darkness. Waiting. Now their time has come.

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

In two months–the world.”

Has anyone read this book?  Is it worth getting excited about?

    Wow. That certainly sounds interesting. I haven’t read it, though…

    Speaking of vampires, there’s an excellent movie with a plot that sounds somewhat similar. It’s called I Am Legend (2007), with Will Smith as a military virologist who’s combatting a deadly infection that transforms victims into flesh-eaters. I’m sure it sounds like some ridiculous B-movie, but it’s really not. 🙂 There are actually quite a few complex and interesting themes woven throughout it…
