Richard Matheson may be the most underrated genre writer ever. Terror Stories , What Dreams May Come - just to name a few, you realize how unique and diverse his talent was.

I haven't seen the movie which I understand is nothing like the book, which is too bad because I think the story is worthy of a good film.

Aug 15, Carol. SciFi and Fantasy Book Club monthly read. There are some excellent reviews out there. I know I was complaining about sqeeing and gifs recently, but I can't help but think a classic book like this could use a little modern reviewing.

I'm a little mixed in my reading reactions to a novella that feels more like a self-conscious allegorical tale than truly innovative storytelling.

The short, choppy prose suited the narrator, but gave a more limited ambiance to the setting. Given the protagonist Neville's relatively easy ability in m There are some excellent reviews out there.

Given the protagonist Neville's relatively easy ability in moving around the world seems to take a little siphoned gas and he's go to go , I felt like it was an incomplete story that left me with many questions about the world.

I do appreciate the sophisticated way Neville's personal history is blended in to the current experience, an impressive contrast to many writers who feel the need for long expository paragraphs, but I would have liked more.

The limited description leaves something lacking, perhaps the extent of the devastation. Is it enough that Neville feels isolated?

Do we need the steps of how he got there? What does 'humanity' mean if you are the only human? Why try to survive? I'm not sure, and as Neville poses these questions, I found myself wondering what he had done to find other survivors, the timeline of catastrophe, the extent of the world breakdown.

The spare depiction make me feel like it was more of a metaphorical tale, a study in the psychology of the individual and his coping with isolation and meaning without context of society.

In this respect, the movie was more able to give the visual sense of complete loneliness and the frustration of working for a potentially futile goal.

It was also hard to have sympathy for Neville. Truly an Everyman, he drowned his emotion in alcohol as often as he attempted to control circumstance.

I didn't admire or respect him; he was dogged but not creative or thoughtful. The lapses into existential questioning only reinforced the emotional distance.

The ending was a surprise; perhaps more likeable than that of the movie, but also more self-conscious and created. There wasn't much build to the ending; there was very little sense of the "types" of vampires through the story--I had more of a sense of Neville's drinking preferences than the vampires.

Still, it is a classic, so I'm glad I took the time to read it, but it feels a little too much like reading The Metamorphosis for my taste. Cross posted at http: Wells por la naturaleza del apocalipsis que en este caso proviene de Marte.

I realize this is one of the "classics" of science fiction or science fantasy and I don't care. I read it years ago and while I find the writing in places rates my recognition of it's quality I don't care for the book.

Years ago, you see, my husband had wanted to talk about the book, probably when the most recent adaptation to movie form had come out, and I am well known for not reading horror, so it wasn't an unreasonable assumption that I would never read this.

I turned the first page of "I Am Legend" with zero knowledge of what Hollywood did to it because a friend of mine gave me an important warning.

The story is Robert Neville's, the last man on Earth after a strange plague has turned every other human being into a vampire.

He lives in a carefully barricaded house, stuffed wi Let me being this review by saying that I never saw any of the movie adaptations of this book.

He lives in a carefully barricaded house, stuffed with canned and frozen food, books and records, as well as a hothouse full of garlic.

He spends his days in the same monotonous way: When he's not doing that, he's using up all his stakes to kill the sleeping vampires in their dens.

His nights are spend listening to the vampires crawling around his house, fighting among each other and trying to lure him out. He's kind of on the edge of going insane when the book begins: He manages to hang on to sanity when he decides to approach the vampire situation from a scientific point of view: This goal carries him forward, until the day he finds himself face to face with someone else who can walk in the day time.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the prose: Matheson is succinct, but also very elegant, and he does built dramatic ramp ups of tension when you least expect it.

He also conveys Neville's emotions very well: I won't spoil anything, but there's an obvious lesson in this book: But more than the simple morals message, the thing that really stuck with me was the atmosphere of decay, paranoia and white-knuckle resistance to madness.

It would be so easy for Neville to give up: But he resists, he holes up, he fights back. The so-called twist can have more than one meaning: I also loved the way this book is a very self-aware vampire story.

Neville gets to wondering what the deal is with the stakes and the garlic, and can't find any rational reason for their effectiveness.

This little wink to the absurdity of the legends was a really nice touch of dark humor in what could have otherwise been a way too serious and depressing book.

If you like vampire stories, this is a classic that you shouldn't miss! A quick, but riveting read with a great ending. I still haven't watched any of the movies, and frankly, I don't intend to.

Following the outbreak of an incurable plague that has mutated every other human on earth into bloodthirsty, nocturnal creatures, Robert Neville must scavenge for food and supplies during the day, whilst hiding in his boarded-up, vampire-proof home at night.

Living a solitary life for so long is not easy, and so he is constantly on the look-out for fellow survivors This was a bu "The strength of the vampire is that no one will believe in him.

This was a buddy-read with my bestest friend, Abbie. We chose this because she is literally a speed-demon and if we had chose a long book, I would be lagging behind for too long!

Turns out, I did lag behind anyway because even though we both finished I Am Legend pretty close to each other, my edition also had a selection of short stories written by Richard Matheson.

So I'm only now "finishing" the entire book. I had watched the movie I Am Legend a number of years ago.

All I can remember about it is Will Smith and a dog Although what I've found really weird about my reading experience is that I did not cast Will Smith as the role of Richard Neville in my head - Abbie said she did.

I really liked this book, which was surprising to me given that its basically focused on one character. Usually I would find the lack of dialogue and conversation quite boring - although we did get some flashbacks to before the plague, which I particularly enjoyed, with some scenes being quite chilling.

Similar to what Abbie said, the constant drinking and throwing whiskey around and smashing glasses did start to grate on me after a while.

I understand his alcoholism - I'm pretty certain I might succumb to addiction myself if I was the lone survivor of some plague, but it just gets repetitive after a while.

What was disturbing to me was his weird fascination with the female "vampires" - DUDE. What the fuck is wrong with you!!

Okay, so I feel like the last paragraph had a lot of complaining, so I'll talk about what I loved. I was geeking out over Richard's thoughts about what possibly caused the plague.

He was basically conducting his own research and it was like reading my day-to-day experiences in the lab - disappointment after disappointment.

A theory that seems so promising quickly dispelled. Microbiology and bacteria are my forte, so his research around this area had me nodding along in agreement.

So that was awesome. The "vampires" themselves were pretty damn scary. I got confused at times because I was like "Are they vampires or zombies?

Or a mixture of both? As for the ending I was blown away. One of the best endings I've ever read in a book.

It felt completely out of left-field and left me a bit gobsmacked. I Am Legend was a great, quick read and I have to give it 5 stars out of 5.

Matheson's writing is simply outstanding and I want to read more. With regards to the short stories, some were great and some were not so great.

Prey was a brilliant short story, it reminded me of Battleground by Stephen King. Dance of the Dead was also pretty eerie. I didn't really include the short stories when giving my rating for this book, as I simply wanted to rate I Am Legend as a standalone book.

More Richard Matheson is definitely on my radar. Now for another buddy read with Sadie, Mindi and Ashley from bookstagram - can't wait!

One guy against a world filled with vampires. I went into this book with an expectation of action. When the story had action scenes, they were done very well, and there is a wonderfully suspenseful and thrilling chase scene in the first half of the book.

However, action, suspense and thrills were absent for most of the rest of the book. There is sad reminiscing of his past life.

There is a long drawn out sequence of attempting to befriend a stray dog. There is lots of time spent getting drunk, list One guy against a world filled with vampires.

There is lots of time spent getting drunk, listening to classical music while complaining about the vampires. The vampires mostly lack charisma, being more dumb brutes, than anything else view spoiler [ until late in the novel.

There is not enough here for me to rate it higher. Not a disaster, has a neat twist at the end, has some good sequences - but, I found it a bit of a snooze fest.

Quickly he pushed a metal wagon up and down the silent, dust-thick aisles, the heavy smell of decay setting his teeth on edge, making him breathe through his mouth.

I have not seen the film yet but the title is very apt, if a little on the nose, perhaps. The above quote is an example of the feeling of loneliness that pervades throughout the narrative.

The vampires are created by view spoiler [a bacterial infection hide spoiler ]. For most of the book, there is no dialogue to speak of, we just follow Neville around, dispatching vampires in the daytime, doing research, locking himself in and getting blotto after sundown, feeling miserable all the time.

Is there a point to such an existence? Neville asks himself that from time to time and there is no obvious answer, he is simply not to suicidal type.

I Am Legend is a classic of several genres, sci-fi, horror, vampires, and post-apocalypse. I love the scientific rationalization of the classic vampire lore, the need for blood, the aversion to garlic and the cross, the stake through the heart etc.

The overtly supernatural lore like transformation into bats and the lack of reflection are dismissed as superstition. In a world full of vampires with only one human being who is the monster really?

The narrative is well paced, without a dull moment, but it is by no means an action-packed thriller. Neville is something of an antihero, some of his actions and behavior are quite questionable and even downright reprehensible but the circumstances do make him quite a tragic and sympathetic figure.

There are some dramatic plot developments which I certainly will not elaborate on, and an ending which leaves you thinking about the morality of the tale.

I Am Legend is, of course, highly recommended. Talking about the various film adaptations: Four are listed at Wikipedia: It does star Vincent Price, and the Price is always right!

In both the Omega Man and the Will Smith movies the vampires are replaced entirely. The movie replaced them with light-sensitive goth weirdo hipsters, while the movie replaced them with big eared monsters.

At least the Heston movie is a hoot. One of them Neville found inside a display freezer. When he saw the man lying there in this enamel coffin, he had to laugh; it seemed such a funny place to hide.

Later, he thought of what a humorless world it was when he could find amusement in such a thing. He had forty-seven stakes. He was his own ethic.

Aug 21, Vanessa J. I enjoy being alone. There's some kind of peace in loneliness. I'm never more happy than when I'm by myself. I've said, though, that if the loneliness if forced upon me, it's not so glorious.

Robert Neville's situation is similar to this latter one. In both books, the hero is, or believes to be, the last man on Earth.

The rest of humanity had died because of a plague. Yes, you read that right: A plague of vampires. Vampires who had a scientific basis rather than a supernatural one, and I must say, it worked better that way, because I don't think the introduction of supernatural beings would have done good to the book, especially since it is horror science fiction sigh, like my favourite book series ever.

Vampires have always been seen as monsters. As they're monsters to our eyes, there comes this question: Are they in fact the monsters, or is it us?

In this book, something similar is addressed. But are his needs any more shocking than the needs of other animals and men?

Is he worse than the manufacturer who set up belated foundations with the money he made by handing bombs and guns to suicidal nationalists?

Really, now, search your soul; lovie—is the vampire so bad? All he does is drink blood. Why, then, this unkind prejudice, this thoughtless bias?

He has no means of support, no measures for proper education, he has not the, voting franchise. No wonder he is compelled to seek out a predatory nocturnal existence.

Of course, in my honest opinion I'm trying to be the less biased as I can , it worked better in The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey, because the answer to that question was more developed and included things that only made the series very dark.

Th hero also questioned himself why he went on living - he being the last man he knew alive, there was no point in continuing his life, is it?

He found himself wondering again why he chose to go on living. I won't say, of course, yet I'm still trying to process that finale because I have confused feelings - does it really make sense and is that the way everything should have ended?

In the meanwhile, I recommend this book, and if you in fact read it, I would not complain if you came to this review to tell me your opininon about the ending.

View all 12 comments. This is a vampire tale, but one very unique to this genre. The last survivor in a plague that left humanity dead--or, undead--Richard Neville has spent the past three years learning everything he can about what caused this change.

Many are the days when he wonders why he even bothers to go on, when everyone around him is "lost". In a world of monotonous horror there could be no salvation in wild dreaming.

Just when you think you've read it all, a classic tale such as this comes your way I never would have expected the internal dialogue of the last man alive to be as captivating as this book was.

Robert Neville is alone, the last uninfected human left as far as he knows, and every day is a struggle to keep it that way.

His anger, depression, frustration and fear are thrown up against the desire to live almost every moment of every day and there are some when you're not sure which will win.

Some of the issues brought up are unique to the fact that Robert Neville is a man alone in I never would have expected the internal dialogue of the last man alive to be as captivating as this book was.

Some of the issues brought up are unique to the fact that Robert Neville is a man alone in the world and many weren't concepts I'd considered before.

Celibacy isn't something I've ever thought of as a potential problem in a post-apocalypse setting because there are usually a number of human survivors.

What do you do when you're the only one? He drowns his emotional pain and shock in whiskey which is probably how he stayed sane through the first year of being alone.

Isolation is a terrible thing that breaks minds and I'm not sure why it didn't break Robert Neville. The only explanation I can think of is that he had chores and music and he used booze as an anaesthetic.

I found his exploration into the workings of the germ and learning from books rather remarkable. I didn't find it at all unbelievable, but I was very impressed at his ability to learn so much with no help from an experienced hand.

I thought the explanation for the infection was novel and interesting. I found the distinction between the living and dead infected brilliant, and I was always interested in any theory Robert Neville posed because it was always well thought out and well presented.

The idea that the living were actually psychologically rather than physically changed was fascinating. If you consider how mass hysteria can produce physical symptoms of illness it makes perfect sense that many of the living would simply go crazy and think they too were monsters of the night.

I found the part of the story when he find the dog and tries to win him over very touching and heartbreaking. There's little else to say about it. It was beautifully done and one of the most powerful parts of the book for me.

I didn't ever stop being suspicious of the girl. I knew she'd be the end of Robert Neville though I didn't know how exactly. The questions of how you come to deal with loneliness and what an intrusion company can be was very cleverly done.

When you're used to your life being just so and you get the thing you've been wanting for so long, suddenly you can really ask yourself if you really wanted it after all.

I found it emotionally unsatisfying at first, but it made a huge impact! He really was the outsider now and his death was a necessary part of the formation of the new society.

I didn't really expect or need him to live happily ever after, but I was sad to see him die. He survived so much for so long.

But he was outnumbered and a threat they had to get rid of. I usually avoid spoilers, but the meat of this story is in the story. It's a fantastic read and I highly recommend it.

A novel that has been both heavily criticized and revered, I Am Legend straddles an uneasy line between Horror and Science Fiction.

However, there is no denying its influence, nor its simple charm. In comparison with some of the 'vampire' drivel being served up today, this little novel is indeed legend.

I know that the science isn't sound, but Matheson has done a terrific job of introducing new ways to broach the subject of vampirism.

And has ever a novel captured loneliness such as this? This book has been made into four seperate film adaptations.

All of which deviate significantly from the novel. Why meddle with brilliance? I read this AFTER seeing all four films, and none of those movies had anywhere near the impact the book did on me.

It's dark, and gritty, and bleak. Its tells a tale of human loss and suffering and our stubborn will to survive.

You could quite easily pick this up in another 50 years time and think it were set in the near future.

It's incredibly This book has been made into four seperate film adaptations. It's incredibly well written and I was a little stunned when I found out it was first published in the 50's.

Brings to mind the old adage 'they don't make 'em like they used to! If you're at all interested in visiting the origins of these incredibly popular genres, start here.

Be prepared to feel a little depressed afterwards though. Four fifths of the way through and the only thing on my mind was how incredibly boring and one-dimensional Robert Neville is.

You would think that someone forced into solitude and surrounded by death and insanity would have a wonderfully colourful and twisted mind - if you're going to have a book revolving around a single character, make him a really good one.

So, it wasn't until he began chasing, abusing and kidnapping a woman in the name of science everything in this book was tunnel-viewed 'i Four fifths of the way through and the only thing on my mind was how incredibly boring and one-dimensional Robert Neville is.

The band signed a record deal with the German label SPV. The 14 songs also included the four songs from the Pandemonium EP.

In the run-up to the release, one already had the chance to listen to all songs of the album by means of a specially programmed streaming app at Facebook.

Laura Vargas from the Chilean band Sacramento appears as guest singer. On December 24, the band released their EP Goliath's End , which can be downloaded for free from the band's website.

The In Legend songs on their debut album are strongly heavy metal -influenced, however with a total lack of the guitar sounds of typical metal bands.

Instead, In Legend focus on the piano as the main instrument. In contrast to that, his right hand and his vocals create catchy melodies.

Apart from metal influences, the sound also contains elements from classical music , rock , alternative , and pop. In Legend often use a strong symbolism and repetitive elements.

For example, the hammer is a metaphorical leitmotif , which can be found both in the name of their self-created musical style "Hand-hammered Piano Craft" and in the music video for the song "Pandemonium.

This is the first part of the chorus of the song "Heaven Inside" which is the opener of the band's debut album. According to own statements, Bastian Emig is not able to read music and has taught himself how to play the piano when he was a child after discovering the piano in his family's living room.

Neville once again attempts to administer a potential cure to the infected woman in his laboratory, but the next night, a group of Darkseekers, who had followed Anna and Neville back the night before, attacks the house.

Neville, Anna, and Ethan retreat into the basement laboratory, sealing themselves in with the female Darkseeker on which Neville has been experimenting.

Discovering that the last treatment was successful, Neville tries to assess the situation as the alpha male deliberately rams himself against a glass door to break in.

Neville draws a vial of blood from the woman he cured and gives it to Anna, before shutting her and Ethan inside a coal chute in the back of the lab.

He then takes a grenade and kills the Darkseekers at the cost of his own life, saving the cure. The next day, before dusk, Anna and Ethan discover that her theory is right as they arrive at the survivors camp in Vermont.

They are greeted by military officers and other human survivors before Anna is shown handing the cure to military personnel. During the lab attack, the alpha male makes a butterfly-shaped smear on the glass.

Neville realizes that the alpha male is identifying the female which he was experimenting on by her butterfly tattoo and that it wants her back. Neville puts his gun down and returns the female.

Neville and the alpha male stare each other down as the former apologizes to the latter. The alpha male accepts it and the Darkseekers leave.

Then, a special effects test was conducted to remove all those people. The test had a powerful effect on studio executives.

Filming began on September 23, Will Smith said, "I don't think anyone's going to be able to do that in New York again anytime soon. People were not happy.

That's the most middle fingers I've ever gotten in my career. A bridge scene was filmed for six consecutive nights in January on the Brooklyn Bridge to serve as a flashback scene in which New York's citizens evacuate the city.

The scene, which had to meet requirements from 14 government agencies, involved crew members and 1, extras, including National Guard members.

Reshoots were conducted around November Lawrence noted, "We weren't seeing fully rendered shots until about a month ago.

The movie starts to take on a whole other life. It's not until later that you can judge a movie as a whole and go, 'Huh, maybe we should shoot this little piece in the middle, or tweak this a little bit.

A week into filming, Francis felt the infected referred to as "Darkseekers" or "hemocytes" in the script , who were being portrayed by actors wearing prosthetics, were not convincing.

His decision to use CGI resulted in an increased budget and extended post-production , although the end results were not always well received.

And their metabolisms are really spiked, so they're constantly hyperventilating , which you can't really get actors to do for a long time or they pass out.

In addition, CGI was used for the lions and deer in the film, and to erase pedestrians in shots of New York.

Workers visible in windows, spectators, and moving cars in the distance were all removed. A lot of the movie takes place on a beautiful day. There's something magical about the empty city as opposed to dark and scary that was the ideal that the cast and crew wanted.

I Am Legend was originally slated for a November 21, , release in the United States and Canada, [44] but was delayed to December In December , China temporarily suspended the release of all American films in the country, [47] which is believed to have delayed the release of I Am Legend.

Will Smith spoke to the chairman of China Film Group about securing a release date, later explaining, "We struggled very, very hard to try to get it to work out, but there are only a certain amount of foreign films that are allowed in.

Premieres were held in Tokyo, New York, and London. At the London premiere in Leicester Square , British comedian and actor Neg Dupree was arrested after pushing his way onto the red carpet and running around shouting "I am Negend!

The film's teaser was attached to the screenings of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The son of the original book's author, Richard Christian Matheson, also collaborated on the project.

The project will advance from the comic to an online format in which animated featurettes created by the team from Broken Saints will be shown on the official website.

In October , Warner Bros. Survival in the virtual world Second Life. The album, which is called Stones At Goliath , is the first release with Daniel Schmidle who joined the band in They were replaced by Paul Perlejewski and Marcos Feminella.

In addition to that, a third pianist Daniel Galmarini joined the band. Stones At Goliath was released in January Apart from the usual instrumentation, the album features violins , a cello played by Benni Cellini, member of the German band Letzte Instanz , organ sounds, synthies , a real gospel choir.

Laura Vargas from the Chilean band Sacramento appears as guest singer. On December 24, the band released their EP Goliath's End , which can be downloaded for free from the band's website.

The In Legend songs on their debut album are strongly heavy metal -influenced, however with a total lack of the guitar sounds of typical metal bands.

Instead, In Legend focus on the piano as the main instrument. In contrast to that, his right hand and his vocals create catchy melodies.

Apart from metal influences, the sound also contains elements from classical music , rock , alternative , and pop. In Legend often use a strong symbolism and repetitive elements.

For example, the hammer is a metaphorical leitmotif , which can be found both in the name of their self-created musical style "Hand-hammered Piano Craft" and in the music video for the song "Pandemonium.

This is the first part of the chorus of the song "Heaven Inside" which is the opener of the band's debut album. View all 52 comments. I loved this book!

Was very creepy to read. I thought it was brillant from beginning to end. One of my favourite books of all time ever! View all 22 comments.

Honestly, this is a tough book to review. I'm the kind of SF reader who likes a bit of depth to be given to the cause of disaster, and this story large Hm.

I'm the kind of SF reader who likes a bit of depth to be given to the cause of disaster, and this story largely glosses over the "Why?

For the time it was written, this probably struck readers in a much different way. If you're basing your opinion of this book solely off your knowledge of the movie, I'd ahead and throw that idea out the window because this book is nothing like the Will Smith, good-guy-out-to-save-humanity, crying-over-his-dog, self-sacrificing version Hollywood has created.

This is much darker. He sound proofs his house, has a gas generator that he keeps running by way of a nearby gas station, and an ungodly amount of alcohol, cigarettes, and wine in his home.

I guess a scenario where all of those things exist in Neville's possession isn't outlandish but the story itself wasn't long enough to explore any sort of break down of these proofs, and thus it felt a bit unrealistic to me.

If you don't love it, no big loss. If you do, well now you know! This review and other reviews of mine can be found on Book Nest!

The vampire plague has destroyed our society. Much of the book focuses on our hero's loneliness. It's well worth reading. There are 3 movies that I know of that are based on this book.

This follows the book I just re-read this after watching some of the movies based on it. This follows the book pretty closely. Looked like a video game.

I expected to see a Toon driving, not Will Smith. I did finally see this movie including both endings. It was incredibly bad. The happy ending was ridiculous.

A bit of historical perspective, of literary context elevates this novel to the well deserved 'genre classic' status. At the time Matheson published his science-fiction take on the gothic vampire myth, the market was a lot different from today's oversaturated landscape that has largely trivialized the subject and gave it a curious teenage romance slant.

Even bringing i I was going to rate the book a lukewarm 3 stars, but then I looked once more at the date of publication and reconsidered.

Even bringing in the scientific method of study for the phenomenon and its associated paraphernalia the bloodsucking, the garlic, the cross, the wooden stake, the fear of light, the sleeping underground, the bullet invulnerability was probably a novel approach to a dusty theme: Something black and of the night had come crawling out of the Middle Ages.

Something with no framework or credulity, something that had been consigned, fact and figure, to the pages of imaginative literature.

Vampires were passe, Summers idylls or Stoker's melodramatics or a brief inclusion in the Britannica or grist for the pulp writer's mill or raw material for the B-film factories.

A tenuous legend passed from century to century. I didn't much care for the prose: I could also complain about the lack of action, but I believe this is more a novel about ideas than a high octane action thriller.

To finish with the grumbling, I would have liked a more rigorous attempt with the scientific speculations. Most of the ideas are sound, but the way they are fitted together seems fishy, with some of the argumentation incomplete.

Let me give you a few examples: The last one is the one I struggled with the most. Other reviewers noticed also that the monsters are closer in behaviour to zombies than to classic vampires.

Cesar Romero cites the book as a primary source, Stephen King alsao makes reference to it. On the positive side, two aspects of the novel stand out and will probably come to define it for me in later years as the actual details of the plot will fade from memory: Richard Neville is utterly alone, he has nobody to turn to, has lost his wife and kid in horrible circumstances, yet he must find the resources inside himself to go on living from day to day.

His heavy drinking, his episodes of paranoid depression and self destructive rage are painfull to watch, as are his efforts to organize his daily routines with checklists and his obsession in hunting down his afflicted neighbours when they are incapacitated during the day.

The episode of the feral dog is probably the best written part of the whole novel. The future of the human race might well be carried on by people with wings or by people who use photosynthesis instead of eating solid food or by vampires who drink blood and go out only at night.

I mean, with the whole Twilight thing. I wholly support zombies, however. At pages, it barely achieves book status at all.

It's really closer to a novella. Instead, it straddles genres, stubbornly refusing to be one thing or another. Perhaps this is the reason people keep trying to turn it into a satisfying film.

It is a potent canvas ripe for many different kinds of tales. The main storyline is pure apocalyptic fiction.

The novel opens with our protagonist Robert Neville as the putative last man on Earth. It is , which stands in for the future since this book was first published in The human race is either dead or turned into vampires Or both?

I suppose I could look this up The exception, of course, is Robert. Woven into the end-of-days context is an old fashioned cast-away story, akin to Robinson Crusoe or The Swiss Family Robinson.

I Am Legend begins well into the vampire apocalypse, introducing Robert as a man who has learned to survive.

It takes us through a typical day: Because anything having to do with vampires has to touch on the repression of sexual urges in some manner.

I Am Legend is also, and most fascinatingly, a grim kind of character study. Matheson makes a rather daring literary choice in not giving Robert anyone or anything to play off of.

There is not another human to talk to. There is no pet. There is only Robert. He is an angry, bitter man, which is altogether understandable.

He is also a high-functioning alcoholic. The novel's high points are a couple powerful sequences in which this hard, down-to-basics shell is peeled away to surprisingly moving effect.

If that ambiguous sentence leaves you scratching your head, I have succeeded. One thing I found entirely missing, other than people, is any semblance of lightness or joy.

Robert — who lives in the LA-area — never has any fun with his sanctified status as last living avatar of the human race. He never goes to an adult bookstore and takes all the porn.

I suppose this is closer to a realistic response to losing your family, friends, and the rest of the world.

Still, we can all use a laugh now and then, right? Matheson tells this story in the third-person limited. The point of view is strictly confined to Robert and what he is seeing, feeling, thinking.

The result is a constricted, almost claustrophobic atmosphere. He is also good at suggesting the creeping madness that comes along with that confinement.

So instead of dancing around themes or vaguely hinting at plot-points for another 1, words which is actually my first inclination , I'll just wrap this up.

This is a quick, surprising little novel with a slammer of an ending. View all 3 comments. This was creepy and sad too.

I don't think I would have lasted long as the last person alive. I would have just given up and let myself get caught!

The vampires of this story are quite zombie like, I thought. How events turn out in the end surprised me. View all 5 comments.

Scifi and Horror Fans. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I just finished reading this book.

Completely different from the movie The version , I wish they would have gone with this story instead.

The reader spends the whole story Which is really only pages following the last man on earth as he fights for his survival against vampires and yes, they are vampires.

He boards up his house, stocks up on canned goods, and researches a way to combat this disease. He is not a doctor or a scientist, just a regular man stuck in an irregular situatio I just finished reading this book.

He is not a doctor or a scientist, just a regular man stuck in an irregular situation. But, as Matheson so beautifully states, "Man can get used to anything", and so he does - burning corpses left on his doorstep by his vampire "friends", gathering fresh garlic, and fixing up his house for them to come back each night and try to drag him out.

Robert, the main character, spends years in this manner. He breaks into a nearby library and gathers an armload of books on anything and everything he thinks will be useful.

In this way, Richard Matheson gives us the first realistic look at vampires from a scientific standpoint.

Some vampires are afraid of crosses because of experiences in their pre-infected life. None can stand garlic - but it must be fresh and strongly scented.

The reason they turn to dust? Well, read and find out. Learning the few ways there are to destroy them, Robert makes an attempt to kill a handful each day.

They have emotions and desires beyond that of fresh blood. While Robert spends his nights locked away in his home, the infected have set about creating their own society.

The most heart-wrenching moment A phrase I do not use lightly comes when a female vampire looks at Robert and tells him "I had a husband.

You killed him while he was sleeping. A fantastic look at who the monsters of this world really are. I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for all of the Will Smith jokes.

It's going to be difficult, but I will refrain from including him in this review. Stuff I liked - Matheson does an amazing job in describing the situation Neville has deal with as the only person left in the world.

The scariest parts for me where when Matheson deals with themes like isolation and loneliness. That stuff was much more terrifying than the vampires more on them later.

There were entire chapters of 1. There were entire chapters of the book describing Neville's fruitless attempts to find companionship.

Those chapters along with the glimpse into Neville's past with his family were really, really good. Being alone like that is much scarier than Stuff I didn't like - vampires.

Yeah, I get it. They add another level of fear to the story, and that's fine. I just felt like when the story was really taking off, it would hold itself back by getting too technical with what these creatures were, how to kill them, how to test their blood to see if they were infected, whatever.

I wanted to hear more about Neville's family and how he is struggling to survive and less about what he reading at the library.

Also, I'm not really huge vampire fan anyway. I'm more of a ghost story, monster in the closet, things that go bump in the night kind of guy, I guess.

Don't do it, Justin. You said no Will Smith jokes this time View all 42 comments. But then I recently read and was enthralled by two other books by Matheson: Well, on the surface it is.

Robert Neville is the last human being on Earth. Everyone else has been infected with a virus that causes vampirism, but for some reason, Robert is immune.

He spends his daytime hours securing his house, staking vampires, and trying to discover a cure for the virus.

At night he hides indoors while the vampires, some who are his former acquaintances, try to break in. The thought, for example, of having free access to anything you want, including cars, jewelry, clothes, houses, art, scientific equipment, and every book in every bookstore and library in the world is exhilarating All those things are almost meaningless outside of their social context.

We all know that humans are social creatures, but none of us has actually experienced a total lack of companionship.

What would it mean to rule the entire world alone? Matheson writes so powerfully about these emotions.

The story is called I am Legend because Robert Neville gradually comes to realize that vampires, the creatures he thought were only legend, are real.

Now, Robert Neville, the elusive human being who vampires fear, has become the legend. This is one I will listen to again.

By the way, I am Legend is not a full-length novel, so some versions include additional stories in a collection called I am Legend and Other Stories.

He's not anywhere like Will Smith, lookwise, English-German man in late 30s with blue eyes, blond going bald and later with a beard.

When we meet him he's been living at his present place for 5 months.
