Read & Download The Night Eternal ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Over de aarde is een nucleaire winter neergedaald Afgezien van één uur zonlicht per dag is de hele wereld in duist. 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 our little gang of survivorsvampire huntersso called hope for the human race is fighting with each other Eph has turned into some kind of alcoholic druggie due to his son being kidnapped by his vamp wife Everyone s irritated with him because he s never where he s supposed to be Which begs the uestion why would you all be separated anyway Everyone has his own little hide out which I thought was weird If vamps are looking for you why would you split up Isn t there strength in numbers Who guards your back while you re sleeping if everyone is hanging out at his own hidey hole in different areas of NYC Two years have passed since the nuclear explosions took place in the second book I don t know what our intrepid vamp hunters were doing during that time other than Eph who raiding pharmacies and hospitals for drugs apparently because the authors have no idea either The vamps are busy turning humans into cattle for their feedings and setting up different camps Also which made no sense to me apparently whatever humans aren t in camps as food or being used as labor are allowed to go about their daily lives and go to work and there is still electricity and limited internet and tv broadcasts all reruns Huh What jobs This is explained by the authors as a way of keeping the humans in line the vamps give them some semblance of their old lives as a way of keeping them under control That makes no damn sense Why would the vamps have to cater to humans It s uite clear the vamps are physically advanced and are pretty much in charge of the world Also now that there s very little sunlight due to the destroyed environment the vamps are pretty much out all the time So where are these humans going on the subways What jobs are they working Are they getting paid Is there still a government All uestions worthy of being asked but do not get answered Also extremely annoying is the Harleuin romance that crops up almost immediately Nora and Eph used to be a couple but ever since he turned druggie she and Fet have been making goo goo eyes at each other Okay fine but this turns into a weirdo love triangle with Eph finding out and getting jealous and there s an absolutely ridiculous scene in which Fet and Nora are reunited after something stupid happens and the passage goes something like this Nora knew now was not the time to give into her feelings for Fet but she couldn t help herself and they kissed Really Oh gag And of course Eph is lurking in the shadows and when he sees them kiss he vows revenge WTF How much awful could this book be A whole lotta nothing happens in this book Nothing makes sense and I skimmed a lot of it just reading enough to keep track of the plot such as it was There s a whole senseless subplot in which Nora needs to escape her hiding place where she s been keeping her mother with her This makes NO SENSE AT ALL Supposedly the future of the human race depends on their actions yet this woman keeps her mother with her Mom has dementia and can t do much except be a burden If Nora and the authors had half a brain they would have allowed Nora to euthanize Mom Her death by Nora s hand would be peaceful and painless than what would happen if the vamps caught her old people are useless the vamps drain them and then kill them But oh no Nora drags Mom around with her while trying to escape the vamps tracking her and you can guess how well that turns out I figure the authors allowed this to happen because they needed Nora to get captured so she could be sent to the camp so what happens there can happen which is dumb but again the whole book is dumb Eph s son has been hanging with The Master and he s turned into a little shithead he was or less brain washed but still I can t forgive him for killing the zoo animals and I don t care what happens to him I actually hoped a vamp would get mad and eat him The book ends just as stupidly as it began and I m beginning to think authors who get lost in their plots and can t figure a way out turn to religion specifically Christianity and even specifically the story of Sodom and Gomorrah from the Bible I don t really know how that story and these different angels connected to the plot because I didn t care enough to read those parts of the book the infamous interludes Suffice it to say the authors wrapped it neatly with a bow by borrowing Christian theology and somehow working vampires into it I won t comment on the end of the novel except to say it smacked of being written in a hurry just to finish off the book and be done with it And that s how I read it uickly so I could be done with it Awful boring dumb horrible book I will be deleting it from my Nook libraryAttention to those who want to comment on my reviewI enjoy comments I do But if you want to explain to me the plot of this stupid book please don t comment at all I understood it Really I did I just thought it didn t work for many reasons which I explain in my review If you want to argue my REASONS for not liking the plot fine But uit trying to explain the plot to me Just because I didn t like the book doesn t mean I m an idiot who didn t understand it I m sorry that I have to add this cranky comment to my review but I m tired of having the book explained to me by people who loved the book If you loved it great If you can t handle dissent then stick to reading reviews that agree with your point of view To those of you who didn t agree with me but managed to leave thoughtful

Read & Download The Night Eternal ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Dernis houdt zich een desperaat netwerk van vrije mensen schuil Zij blijven verzet bieden hoe hopeloos het ook lijkt. 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 resistThe trilogy as a whole is entertaining Certainly not with great literary uality but it will make under Guillermo del Toro s direction a heart stopping movie The writing is not bad I presume that the primary author is Chuck Hogan and based only on the one novel of his that I have read Prince of Thieves he is talented As in Prince of Thieves the action in the trilogy is charged breathless and easy to follow All three books are uick reads that will keep you turning pages to the lastHere is the real strength of the trilogy The vampires creations I assume from the imagination of Guillermo del Toro are great They look as vampires should look They act as vampires should act No handsome men or beautiful women romancing here They suck blood and nothing else preferably type B And they smell badActually the vampires in the trilogy are not all the same There is an hierarchy with the Master at the top then the strigoi who are linked to the Master telepathically There are also feelers vampiric children blinded and who scramble on all fours and who are also under the direct control of the Master This array of the undead makes human existence exceedingly problematic To be turned is not a pleasant experience Worms that carry the vampiric virus pass from the vampire to the target through a huge stinger that rolls out of the vampire s mouth much like a frog s tongue extends to catch his food And once turned the targets loose many of the features that mark them as human ears noses hair genitals opaue skin refined digits Also as all vampires starting with Brian Stoker s Dracula they don t react well to silver or to daylight or ultraviolet lightThe Master has some uniue characteristics that the strigoi lack He can and has changed bodies his essence survives body jumps This ability has an importance in volume 3 He alone travels with a casket layered with dirt from his home of origin He thinks strategizes and reasons He communicates telepathically He is fixated on one of the humans Dr Eph Goodweather although it is never clear exactly whyThe band of humans if the truth be known is no attractive in regard to its souls than the vamps who really don t have souls We like them because they are human and in short measure by the end of the first volume they become as agile killing and stalking vampires as Bruce Willis would be if he had a part in the action The action in volume 3 takes place 2 years after the ending of volume 2 By then our band of humans is ragged worn and mal nourished One Dr Goodweather a recovering alcoholic even pops vicodin with regularity But they barely show their deteriorated or drugged condition when confronting the strigoi they can take out gaggles of them in short order as if they were in the top of their form The authors have given humanity s defenders some back history to flesh them out a bit although even then we would still not take them home to meet our Moms They are just not overly loveable as a group or as individualsThe trilogy is really about action and not people good versus evil in the broadest brush strokes And by volume 3 the authors have enfolded the Master into a creation myth rooted in the Judeo Christian tradition Turns out there is a God He just is not pulling the strings as aggressively as one might anticipate He did however have a hand unwittingly it would seem in creating vampires And he eventually intervenes after a fashion although through a glass darklyI presume that there are some loose and dead ends that are never fully explained by the authors but I can t pull any up as an example I was tracking several myself but they were all eventually explained or less by the end of volume 3 I have a sense however that the world of The Stain is not as tightly nor sophisticatedly constructed as something Margaret Atwood has doneHad it not been for Guillermo del Toro s name on the first entry in the trilogy I am smitten by his Pam s Labyrinth I probably would not have bought the book With the movie certain to hit the screens there is no reason to tackle the original text unless you are at the end of your to read list or unless you are really looking for an undemanding but page turning read The Angel and the Prince years after the ending of volume 2 By then our band of humans is ragged worn and mal nourished One Dr Goodweather a recovering alcoholic even pops vicodin with regularity But they barely show their deteriorated or drugged condition when confronting the strigoi they can take

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 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 ashamed to put on paper If a monkey had drunken sex with the Old Testament this would have been the aborted offspring For the love of all that s unholy do not read this book You ve been warned Oh Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan You roped me in with your awesome tense first book You kept me going through deprivation and fear in the second And then you give me this drivel The vampire plague goes from a biological threat to Biblical baloney Eph goes from a character I feel for and root for to someone I want to kick seven kinds of hell out of I actually root for the vampires to bite his ass His son is a douche Nora and her exterminator lover are 2 dimensional as they come This isn t a story about degradation for a purpose that I could handle This book just SUCKED Don t read it uit at 1 or 2 DO NOT READ THIS BOOK
