    One thought on “Die Nacht”

    1. I am amazed that a series which started so well with The Strain ended so badly. The second book was disappointing, but sometimes the middle book of a trilogy is, but The Night Eternal is simply awful. Mostly I was bored because not much happened in the book. Not only is it not scary or interesting, but it didn't make any kind of logical sense, and yes, even vampire apocalyptic novels should follow some sort of logic. So much is wrong with this novel I'm not sure where to start. Let's see. First, [...]

    2. A bit spoilerish but not too dangerousDisappointing end. Not just the ending of the trilogy but the whole book. It tasted so different if compared with the predecessors. I don't even know where to start pointing out the things I dislike from this book. The archangels and Sodom & Gomora & Old Testament tales are so ridiculous I spent much time frowning and shaking my head. Too much deus ex machina here and there. Why can't the authors make an original tale of the vampire creation? And the [...]

    3. A great cataclysmic finale to a story of biblical proportions, a story thats unearths a history as old as mankind. A father and a son separated across the Atlantic, are two important characters in this third and grand finale of a book. The father Dr Ephraim Goodweather, once a prominent epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has a very important role, for the end of times is near either for the humans or the vampire race. For some reason, which will be unveiled in th [...]

    4. One of the worst books I've ever read. Be warned, the following is full of spoilers!This book is FULL of plot holes - like suddenly, an epidemiologist is a freaking ninja, able to wield a sword against tens of vampires at the same time (even though said vampires have 6-foot long stingers, so). The vampire blood is now caustic (since when??) and vampires frow wattles (???) even though the Ancients didn't have theseAlso, apparently the UK is largely vampire-free, due to being an island. FYI, geogr [...]

    5. My original review is below. I revisited this book and, though I thought it impossible, my loathing has only grown. I now hate this book and the catastrophic end it brought more than Donald Trump hates our President. More than the Kardashians hate privacy. More than hippies hate soap. More than children hate broccoli. This book is an abomination that made me stupider to read it. This book is a tragedy filled with faux mystical nonsense that the hack writers of the Left Behind series would feel a [...]

    6. Η επικράτηση του Αφέντη έφερε τη βασιλεία του σκοταδιού και την ανατροπή της φυσικής τάξης μέρας και νύχτας. Τίποτε δεν είναι το ίδιο σε έναν κόσμο που ο ήλιος έχει χαθεί πίσω από ένα αδιαπέραστο πέπλο στάχτης, σε ένα ρημαγμένο περιβάλλον που αποτελεί πια τον ιδανικό βιότοπ [...]

    7. Book 3 The Night Eternal of The Strain trilogy resumes with the resistance and The Born (Mr. Quinlan) out to find and destroy The Master at his site of origin, but there is a traitor among them and another with his own agenda.While there is a bit more history and background information than necessary on how "it" all began in this finale, it was still full of action and very entertaining if you like this genre and accept it for what it is.The ending was not exactly what I had hoped for, (view spo [...]

    8. The Strain Trilogy is comprised of three separate volumes published between 2009 and 2011: The Strain (2009); The Fall (2010); and The Night Eternal (2011). Written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, it chronicles a vampiric takeover of the world and the efforts of a band of humans to resist.The trilogy as a whole is entertaining. Certainly not with great literary quality but it will make, under Guillermo del Toro’s direction, a heart-stopping movie. The writing is not bad. I presume that [...]

    9. Interested in more of my reviews? Visit my blog!Night Eternal: the final installation in the Strain Trilogy. As the title may tell you, you’re in for a very dark and desolate journey. I will keep this short and sweet as much of this novel needs to be experienced firsthand, instead of through a review.The StorylineAs the story opens, Dr. Ephraim (Eph) Goodweather is still reeling from the loss of his son, Zachary. Due to the vampire nature, his mother Kelly came back for him after she had alrea [...]

    10. After reading book two, I concluded that perhaps my love of The Strain was a result of hatred of friendly (and sparkly) vampires and being read by Ron Perleman. I can't rule out the former, but the lack of Perleman did not lessen my enjoyment ofThe Night Eternal . It is always difficult for me to know how to review books that are continuations of a series since by book three it is likely unfair to evaluate whether the book can stand alone. In fact, who would expect it to? Listening/reading 2 hou [...]

    11. Реалната ми оценка за трилогията "Напаст" е някъде ~ 3,5. Щеше ми се апокалиптичната картина, в която вампирите стават владетели на света, да има по-голям размах (спомнете си какво стори с един грипен вирус чичо Кинг в "Сблъсък"), но не би Главният герой Еф Гудуедър за две години ( [...]

    12. I've read through a few of the negative reviews about this final book in the trilogy, and although I saw some valid points, I didn't see anything to sway me from giving this book a good rating.I enjoyed the entire trilogy and the last book was very good, IMHO. It was a page-turner with plenty of action and intrigue, and I enjoyed the biblical implications (whereas others didn't). I liked how the authors explained the rising of the first vampires. It was uniquely different from what we've heard i [...]

    13. Η μυθοπλασια φανταστική. Τα πολλά μικρά λαθακια που οδηγουσαν σε ατοπα, δεν εξηγηθηκαν στο τρίτο μέρος της τριλογίας.

    14. "The vampires have established themselves at top of the food chain, Tescos is out, express blood banks are in. Humans are now the cattle."I found myself rooting for Eph to kick the Masters arse towards the end. What a blaze of glory the ending had. I know, I know, I've said several times how dull this novel is, how much it borrows from Del Toro's other works and genres. I couldn't help it. Damn it, I feel somehow, tainted. Anyway, so The Night Eternal is the last in Del Toro and Hogan's The Stra [...]

    15. I am a HUGE vampire fan (real vampires, not those glittery pieces of crap that are in those dumb ass twilight books), and found this series to be a great read. I like the twist on the traditional vampire story with some old legendy stuff thrown in. In my life I have bought less than a dozen brand new books in hardcover (when they first came out) and this series (after reading the first book) was one in which I just couldn't wait for the paperback version to come out because I had to buy it. I ra [...]

    16. I can't believe it's over! With a satisfying ending, this last book of "The Strain" trilogy did not let me downexcept by ending! It was thoroughly suspenseful--the last twenty percent or so really had me at the edge of my seat. No spoilers from me, but wowI didn't expect that ending! Now I can't wait for the television series that's expected to air this summer on FX. I hope it will closely mirror the book, unlike many other series based on books.Again, I highly recommend this amazing series. It' [...]

    17. Longer review: biteintobooks/2017This series was a rollercoaster ride! I loved to read this series together with Zwaantina.I can tell you this; it's a unique series in the vampire-themed books. I loved the fact that del Toro and Hogan weren't scared to make the world in this book AWEFUL. I wouldn't want to live there.The book really builds up to an ending that could go either way. I felt like the world was lost forever, and a "good" ending wasn't possible in my opinion.You should read this serie [...]

    18. Review of a book received from the Vine program in exchange for an honest review, review written 2011.Two years have passed since the fall of The Night Eternal. The Master has consolidated his control over humanity by the wholesale slaughter of the leaders, the intelligentsia, the scientists – anyone who might challenge his supremacy – and of those who are elderly or infirm or otherwise incapable of being contributing members of society. In the meantime, humans are controlled by the vampire [...]

    19. I will add my voice to the chorus who found this final book in the Strain Trilogy to be a great disappointment. One of my major complaints regards the Biblical origin story that Guillermo and Hogan have concocted, since it cheapens one of the great premises on which the original book rests: that the vampires have a detailed, real-world biology. Additionally, the plot is sloppily constructed, as with the chapter that, late in the game, describes how Eph's son is developing OCD; in no previous cha [...]

    20. Finally finished this one. It was a bit of a slow-starter, not as fast paced as the first two in the trilogy. Perhaps because this one takes place two years down the line and there was some story line that needed to be added, maybe because there was a seven month gap between reading the second book and starting the third. All I know for sure is, once this book got going, it really got going. About a third of the way in I started reading it at every possible opportunity, as I had with the other t [...]

    21. This is the 3rd installment in The Strain trilogy.Once again we fjnd the ragged, but slowly diminishing, band of survivors fighging a seemingly insurmountable legion of blood sucking evil led by the hellish Master.This was extremely engaginf and well written and rounded out the series perfectly.On the whole, the trilogy was also very entertaining, and I would recommend it to anyone who is tired of vampire cliches, as this story creates an interesting new take on the tried and true formula. And t [...]

    22. Excelente historia, mantiene el suspenso hasta el final, aunque un par d capítulos antes d que termine se va adivinando.Pero para mi opinión esta bien ese final, lástima por algunos personajes principales (q no voy a poner cuales son xa no spoilear)Me alegra q esa hdp d Kelly al fin se muera. Y nada más. Muy buena saga, disfrute de la lectura d los tres libros. Atrapante, intrigante y mantiene el suspenso todo el tiempo.

    23. Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s sci-fi vampire trilogy The Strain started off really strong with the first book, “The Strain”. It kind of lost some steam in the second book, “The Fall”. I was hoping that they saved the best for last with the third book, “The Night Eternal”, that it would blow me away with the epic global vampire-human battle for which they seemed to be setting up. It didn’t blow me away, honestly. It kind of made me wish that the book would just end. Okay, t [...]

    24. Que mejor manera de terminar una saga de esta clase, que no sea con un libro de este nivel. No mucho que decir, una obra increíble, todo y más de lo que esperaba de un autor como este.Todo lo más horrible a imaginar de una saga de vampiros, está aquí.Si eres admirador del cine de Guillermo del Toro, dale una oportunidad y notarás el maestro que es.Espectacular.

    25. "The Night Eternal", the end of the Strain Trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan is a fine read. Taken on it's own, it's actually quite a good novel about a post-apocalyptic New York City ruled by the iron first of an ancient vampire. However, when the two novels of the trilogy that preceded this one are taken into consideration, it is quite obvious that this is the weakest of the three.Still, one cannot overlook the good and what this book does good, it does quite well; for instance, th [...]

    26. A strong start to this book but eventually took a turn where it kind of became abit like Lost.This series has been a mixed bag and although the series was enjoyable at times it just came across as abit silly. I did kind of space these books out abit too much reading one each year so at times it took me a few chapters to kind of remember what happened to certain characters.The vampires in this series are without a doubt 'The Reapers' from Blade 2 and is even co-written by the Del Toro who directe [...]

    27. I don't have much to say about the third book in this trilogy, except to say that it really loses steam. I loved the first two books, but this one barely held my interest long enough to finish it. And it ended the way I thought it would with a generic feeling survivors epilogue. I'm glad it's over so I can start something more entertaining.

    28. Oh, was I excited to get this book! I loved the first book in the series, The Strain – recommended it to everyone who was tired of sparkly vampires. The Fall was a little less successful (often the case with the middle book in a series), but still a very good read. I have been anxiously awaiting the final installment, in part because I figure the movie can’t be far behind.The Night Eternal begins two years after The Fall ends. The Master has orchestrated the end of the human race and institu [...]

    29. It's not a very good end for a trilogy which had started off so strong at the very beginning, but I'm still glad that I'd finished reading the three whole books. I still like the concept and the worldview offered by the author, I also quite like the ending as well.One of the authors, Guillermo del Toro, is a famous director. Perhaps due to the fact that I am not a fan of his movies so I actually think The Strain Trilogy is better excised than del Toro's movies (I've watched three of them).I foun [...]
