I absolutely love these stories and I loved the first one. However with the change in narrators I can't even get through chapter 2. The tone changes for the same characters and some of the narration is so startling and harsh it just yanks you out of the story. Total waste of $27.
change of tone for the same characters, monotone at times, very unpleasant pace, not a great storyteller.
Narrator should be replaced with one less scratchy, more soothing voice and more into his job.
Do you read the book before you dislike my reviews?
Whenever I eat at buffets, I never go for the fillers. I always fill up my colon with the good stuff. I'm really digging the Strain Trilogy and the second book is better than the first. "The Fall" is a different story from the first book. Instead of being action pack, this book tell us more of the story, which I really like. It almost feels like a diversion from the main plot and getting you ready for the end.
It gave me a break from the vampires, sucking up bloods and made my mind defer to somewhere else in their layers. Very complex beings and I cannot wait how it ends. I already bought the last book and debating if I should read something else to give myself a break, or just charge it. I think the reason why I like the second book better than the first because there is a slight side story of science fiction with the space station.
Hi, I'm an alumi of NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I'll give you guys the goods.
This series is amazing and very well written. Plot and setting very well done. As a New Yorker I felt the city was well represented and turned into a mystifying place. The Foe is hot on the heels of our hero's in this one and the odds seem stacked against them.
keeps you at the edge of your seat.
Excellent performance throughout the book.
The title is perfect.
Great story. Great characters. Great Performance.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
I enjoyed the first book and got the second thinking it should be good as well. It was so boring and kept going over things again and again using the different character. I just couldn't get into it and I don't know how it finished as I couldn't finish the book Not getting the 3rd one now.
Audible makes me love being stuck in traffic :)
I'm halfway through the third book and I've really enjoyed this trilogy so far. I liked the first one better, but only marginally so, and I think that's because I love the buildup in apocolyptic stories--the feeling of knowing the world is coming down around the characters before they know it and watching the way they observe and deal with the challenges they face.
The first book made me care deeply about the plights of the main protagonists, Zach, Eph, Nora, Setrakian, Fet and even Gus (who, I liked from the beginning, despite his criminal background). Because of that, the concluding events of the the second book made me sad for all of them and anxious to listen to the third book so I could learn their ultimate fates. Since for me, the hallmark of a good story is that it moves me (whether I laugh, cry, get angry, excited, whatever), I've really enjoyed The Strain Trilogy.
You have to listen to these stories. They are truly truly truly great to listen to. If you have listened to book 1 then you can not wait to listen to this. It is simply awesome the way the story evolves and the direction it takes. Highly highly recommend this series.
Very disappointed to not have Ron Perlman reading. It would have been nice if Daniel Oreskes would have pronounced the main character's name the same way it was pronounced in the 1st book! Complete let down!
I love a good murder mystery or any novel where good overcomes evil. Two of my favorite authors are Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker.
I think this book would make an excellent movie. The idea that people become vampires due to a virus is a new one for me. I enjoyed the characters, the plot and the pace. Very exciting!
a great sequal to a new twist on the vampire legend
the professor...great knowledge and brings the old schlor to the new age
his voice over wasnt as good as the first book..i would have Ron perlman did the second book his character voices were much better
