Do you read the book before you dislike my reviews?
The last book in The Strain Trilogy is like watching an vampire episode on CW. I'm surprised that FX bought the rights to the show and not the frog network. Neediness to say, I was very disappointed in "The Night Eternal." It seems like that the series lost steam and just became another vampire story with a treasure hunt for the lost book. The dialogue didn't fit the action and I was hoping for a lot more.
I really liked the first two installments from Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, but the last passage was a complete let down with a bad ending. This could had been my summer read to break up the same books that I've been reading all year long, but I was disappointed in "The Night Eternal."
It became somewhere in the middle of Anne Rice and Ayn Rand. Somewhat too Gothic and too much ideological nonsense.
I couldn't handle neither of it. It's too bad because I really liked the beginning and the middle of The Strain Trilogy a lot, but the end did not hold up on its own.
Only if you read the other two books. I lost interest after the 100th vampire battle in this book. Was good up until about half way...then drags on. So tired of hearing about the kids vamp mom, his issues with dad, and so on.
The story was dull and slow compared to the first two books.
I honestly can't remember.
If part of the trilogy, then yes.
Books 1 and 2 much more engaging than this book.
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.
I really enjoyed the entire series. This novel was no exception it was a great ending to a wild, dark, and enjoyable ride.
I loved this series! The first book in most series is usually the best because its all a mystery. You get to uncover your heroes, your villains, your basic story. Books that follow have a hard time bringing new terrifying twists to the characters, the plot, and the outlook on success. Each book in this series uncovers more of the creepy vision laid out by the master. You even learn of his origins and realize the hope of defeating him is ... bleak. Especially by a sympathetic but flawed meager human. Between the human blood camps, the hero exterminator, the ancient professor with a to the death mission, and finally the reveal of your fallen angel so addicted to human blood he tries to reshape the earth to satiate himself, this series is one of the best. I enjoyed the heck out of it.
Audible makes me love being stuck in traffic :)
I really enjoyed all three books. I have to admit that I liked the first book the best, but I think that's just because I dig the suspense of buildup so much so that endings rarely deliver. Anyway, this ending was great. Good resolution, but not a Hollywood, everything-is-all-unicorns-and-rainbows now ending. It's a believable ending that accepts the situation in which the story thrust the characters. Also, I didn't really get the backstory about the angels and I struggled with the logistics of destroying the body remnants. But other than that, it was good.
All three books we fabulous. Thrilling, suspenseful and creative. I didn't want the story to end.
Say something about yourself!
I loved book 1, I liked this book and got through it just because I wanted to find out what happened to everyone. but I wish he would have stayed on track, and made the story as interesting as the first one. only get this book if you have read 1 and 2 and you want to see how it ends... it is ok.
Not sure I would recommend the series as book three was a bit of a letdown.
