    Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster-care system. Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years. Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that, in order to inherit the wealth of his father's estate, he must marry a woman before he turns 35.

    No

    He made the characters sound low budget.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of E Lynn Harris's books and this being his last book was not good. It lacked so much and was very predictable. The ending left me unsatisfied. I do not recommend you soil your memory of this author with this book.

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Strain the most enjoyable?

    Listening to this book was hard. Ron Perlman's voice is great however it was bland and not enough distinction between the characters. I found myself going back to verify that a female character was in play. It got frustrating so I just let the story play. If a a female were to narrate along with Ron this could have been better.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Strain?

    The hispanic boy escaping and then being saved by the vamps. I also like how the neighborhood rat trapper is used. Very good characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ron Perlman?

    Ron Perlman is a good choice however a female should have accompanied.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Strain and why?

    Hispanic boy and the rat trapper.


    Any additional comments?

    The book at times seems like a script and since this doesnt occur often maybe it's a fluke. During this period of script sounding it's dragging the book.

    The characters come together to make an interesting team and if you can get past the narrator voice, it makes for a good listen.
