FREE READ The Strain 108 CHARACTERS The Strain Damente todo o planeta Guillermo del Toro visionário realizador e Chuck Hogan escritor premiado conjugam imaginações neste romance arrojado e épico sobre uma assustadora batalha entre homens e vampiros ue ameaça toda a Humanidade É o primeiro volume de uma empolgante trilogia e um extraordinário acontecimento literário internacion. This is the first of a planned trilogy The director of Pan s Labyrinth and an award winning mystery author brings their vision to the vampire tale Del Toro and friend from Geek Nation The Strain is a fast entertaining read with a twist to the rationale for vampirism that is fun if a bit derivative In fact a lot of this book is derivative cobbling together elements from a host of books and films There is a scene that is reminiscent of the haunted ship seuence in Dracula In the original a ship that is carrying Dracula s coffin home soil and Drac himself makes it to its destination but the ship is completely depopulated In this one an airplane manages to land but all the passengers succumb to an instantaneous malady that appears to kill all but four of the people aboard Fans of Alien will recognize a smile at how these vamps bite their prey The subcutaneous suigglies that appear here will be familiar to anyone with the SyFy channel in their cable package The New York setting brings together hints of 911 with the sort of I Am Legend scenario of one or a few real humans holding off the vampiric hordes There is a strong element of 24 Days here as well How long will it be before the entire city and then the nation is overtaken by the bloodsuckers And the vamps here seem to share considerable DNA with zombies There is a hint of Underworld and even Anne Rice in that there is mention of battles between factions of the undead No doubt fodder for volumes 2 and 3While I found the freuent homages they are homages right not crass copying to prior works tiresome after the first batch I enjoyed some of the mechanisms presented as ways of dispatching the blood hungry and the added nuance to how mirrors work And the name Eldritch Palmer summons not only Lovecraft but Philip K Dick s The Three Stigmata of Palmer EldritchJonathan Hyde as Eldritch Palmer from MashablecomdelToro and Hogan have fun with darkness from the dark cave that first takes the evil giant Sardu to the darkness of the death plane to the darkness of the solar eclipse They head to the appropriate underworld of the New York infrastructure and counterpoint a bit with the skyscraper home of a prime baddie A solar eclipse is imminent actually the next one in NYC is not until 2079 and some people ascribe the extant madness to that event There are plenty of nifty visuals here to be expected given that one author is such a master of visual mediaDavid Bradley as Abraham Selvakian from The Mental AtticOur Van Helsing is Abraham Selvakian an old pawnbroker and Talmudic scholar The authors go a bit overboard with some of their naming Our CDC hero is Ephrain Goodweather ReallyCorey Stoll at Ephrain Goodweather From IGNI enjoyed the vampire mechanism explanation but I felt a strong compulsion not to look too closely I expect it would not hold up to any but the most cursory inspection And how did all the passengers on that plane suffer the same fate at the same time Surely someone saw someone else being harmed and left his or her seat at the very least the Master from The Strain WikiaThe TV show from which the above images were all taken is fun as is the book but for both book and show you will definitely have to check your brain before jumping in And what s that wormy thing on your arm

FREE READ The Strain 108 CHARACTERS The Strain Um Boeing 777 proveniente de Berlim aterra no aeroporto JFK e de repente pára na pista As janelas estão fechadas As luzes estão apagadas Ninguém responde às chamadas da torre de controlo Nenhum passageiro atende o telemóvel Parece ue o avião deixou de existir O ue os investigadores encontram lá dentro gela lhes o sangueO ue ao pri. Imagine that you re reading one of those Twilight books as Edward is whispering chaste sweet nothings into Bella s ear and it was oh so romantic and couldn t you just die OMG OMG OMG Suddenly Edward s head flips back and his throat opens up like he just became a Pez dispenser A six foot stingersucker thing flies out and it zaps that silly girl right in a major artery and drains her dry in about twenty seconds while parasitic worms take over her corpse and turn her into a mindless bloodsucking meatbag And that is why Guillermo Del Toro will never direct one of the Twilight movies Too bad because I d pay good money to see thatDel Toro who directed several horror movies as well as the critically acclaimed but extremely gruesome Pan s Labyrinth apparently was tired of the vampires being castrated by hordes of adoring teenage girls and set out to make them monsters again And he does a pretty good jobA Boeing 777 lands in New York but most of the passengers are dead Before you can say Bela Lugosi a CDC doctor is getting lessons from a Van Helsing wannabe named Setrakian on the best way to deal with the vamps which are essentially a parasitic virus run amok with a Master bloodsucker as the main villain pulling the strings to launch a full scale vampire apocalypseThe book had a fresh take on the vampire story and Del Toro and co author Chuck Hogan do a good job of mixing some Old World vampire mysticism with 21st century science and tech Especially creepy is the way that Manhattan is soon being uietly overrun during the initial outbreak It s got a Stephen King Salem s Lot vibe in those descriptionsHowever Del Toro borrowed liberally from some of his movies most noticeably Mimic and Blade II The characters are B movie thin especially the hero who is also saddled with a bad sub plot of a custody fight for his son His ex wife and the social service worker can t understand why a potential viral outbreak might cause a CDC doctor to have to reschedule an appointment or two The opening set up with a plane load of dead passengers has been used twice before that I know of in Nelson DeMille s The Lion s Game and Fringe in its pilot episodeSo the story seemed overly familiar in a lot of ways and the writing isn t especially great but it s got a lot of momentum and is loaded with enough gore and ultra violence to make vampires nasty again It s the first in a trilogy and it was enough fun that I ll be checking out the next two
