Book #26...

The Strain
Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan

Occasionally I'll take a look through Amazon or Barnes & Noble to see what other people are reading. This book popped up on the list and seemed to be getting some pretty good reviews, so I headed on over to the library to pick it up.

First of all, it's a vampire book. Actually, it's the first book in a trilogy and I don't know if you can classify it as a typical vampire book.

The basic idea is that a vampire virus (think outbreak) has been deliberately unleashed on New York and a few key people must band together to end it.

It's not a book for the faint of heart, but it was a very compelling and entertaining read. The unfortunate part is that part 2 & 3 don't release until 2010 and 2011 respectively.

And if vampires aren't your thing...don't judge me.
