Richard Matheson - I Am Legend Series -. (Horror, Science Fiction ) Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth . He was a tall man, thirty-six, born of English-German stock, his features undistinguished except for the long, determined mouth and the bright blue of his eyes, which moved now over the charred ruins of the houses on each side of his. He'd burned them down to prevent them from jumping on his roof from the adjacent ones.

Thus it stands to reason that I never would have read Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend had not the wildcard of my book club chosen it as this month’s selection. Frankly, I was a little underwhelmed by the choice. The critical blurbs did not help matters along.

I Am Legend is a classic horror story. Some regard it as THE classic horror story. Influencing great modern horror writers like Stephen King, it's one that will stick with you. I still remember the exact moment I started and finished this book nearly 10 years ago. I was sitting shotgun while my father drove us home from a vacation in Michigan. The AC was too high and I was freezing but couldn't bare to pull my eyes away from this story long enough to ask him to turn it down.

I was delighted that I could find a Non-Will Smith cover for this book. As many people know, this story has been adapted into 3 or 4 movies over the years. Word of warning, this is different from the Will Smith movie. If the movie was a standalone with a different name, I would have liked it more. As an adaptation of the book, the movie is seriously lacking.

Differences like the fact that the vampires can talk make this story more compelling as the last man on earth isn't alone. This is one of my favorite books of all time.

Pros:
If you've seen the movie, you can still read the book and be very enthralled. Different enough where you won't know the twists.
Great writing. This book made me want to become an author when I was little.
Can't say too much more as I don't want to give anything away.

Cons:
Be careful to purchase the correct copy if you're avoiding the Will Smith movie cover print.
The sticker on the back of mine was sticky enough that now, once removed, my book sticks to everything. That's my biggest complaint people. Back of the book is a little sticky. Seriously. Buy this!

I'll say this; I'm glad I saw the movie before I read the book. If I'd read the book before I'd seen the film I would have been so peed-off at the hack job the movie was. At least I have the ability to say it was a mildly entertaining, if not regurgitated zombie movie.

This book is fantastic. The way that Matheson builds Robert Neville, from the angry drunk to the somber yet thoughtful man, resigned to his fate. It's an emotional ride as we visit, through his memories, the brutal way in which his daughter was taken and burned with the other infected. The way his wife slowly succumbed to the plague and the way he had to deal with her, the dog, and finally Ruth and his breakdown.

The way Matheson treats the vampires is so clever and refreshing and something I didn't expect. I chose this book because I'm making my way through the Sci-Fi Masterworks list and thought, well it's about vampires, why is it on this list? Well now I know and I'm glad it deserves to be.

Finally, unlike the movie, when you read the very last sentence to fully understand why it's titled, I Am Legend.

This was a very cool book. I had not realized this was written in 1954 until someone mentioned it. Of course, I had seen the movie, and I was intrigued when someone said the book was nothing like it. So true. This book was an awesome look at the degradation of a man's sanity as he lives three years in near isolation while keeping vampires at bay. It seems to run counter to traditional vampire themes of the time, and still seems like a very fresh idea today.

There were a few moments when I disconnected from the book, but mostly I thought it was great. I flew right through it.

A virus has turned everyone on Earth into a vampire. Robert Neville is the last uninfected man still alive. By day he goes about his business: repairing his fortified house, stringing garlic necklaces, sharpening stakes, collecting supplies from what he can scavenge in town. But after sundown he’d better be home behind the locked doors, because they always come knocking after dark. And he is so very lonely.

I’m not a frequent reader of vampire stories, but I’m glad I gave this a go. Written long before the recent zombie and vampire book/TV show deluge that seemed to be everywhere, I found this novella well-written and thoughtful. I was thoroughly entertained.

There are some books that, while good in and of themselves, later generations may have a hard time fully appreciating because they lack context. I am Legend feels like one of those books. While modern readers should appreciate it as good zombie apocalypse novel with a clever twist, connoisseurs of the genre will recognize it for the landmark novel it is.

That may have sounded more pretentious than was meant, so let me clarify: This book is about a man named Robert Neville, the last survivor of a plague that wiped out humanity. He fortifies his house daily to fend off monsters who attack him. Does this sound like fairly standard zombie fiction? Yes. But what normal probably won't realize is this was the first book to do this. This novel spawned a thousand imitators, and it's uniqueness may get lossed in the crowd if you don't know the history.

The writing itself is fantastic, locking the reader in to the frustration and grind of life after the end. I can not recommend this book enough to horror and sci-fi fans.
