Okay, I liked his idea of how the "virus" works in the human body and how it's transmitted, etc. It was plausible to me! (Also creeped me out completely, lol!)

Carey (thetometraveller) | 27 comments Me too! Gross, gross, gross. I like the white blood that is just leftover plasma, unusable to them.

So interesting how two books, The Strain & The Passage, can take each take the concept of a Vampire virus apocolypse and have them be so totally different in execution. I think this one is squarely in the horror realm, where I'd put The Passage more in the genre of futuristic sci-fi. More like Dune or Waterworld?

Carey (thetometraveller) | 27 comments Not that I have read either one...but I've seen the movies. It is very weird, I love sci-fi on tv or movies (Star Trek, Doctor Who) but I hardly ever read it.

On page 323...I should finish up in a couple of hours.
