Although it's a bit dated at this point (at least in terms of technology), the story is still excellent and well-worth the time.
I have not seen the movie, so my views of this story have not been tainted. I really enjoyed it although the medical jargon is sometimes difficult to follow. My only complaint is about the narrator. It seems most people liked him, but I found him to be difficult to listen to at times, particular when he reads female lines.
I liked it up to the ending. The character seemed more like the Heston version than the Smith version. The story was a little different than the two movie versions which was nice since I've seen them.
Well worth the listen!
Had me in my seat. I am a little disappointed on the ending but it fits with the title. Must listen book. Worth the credit, worth the money!
The narrative is excellent. The book is written is such a way that you feel as though you are with the main character, struggling through the day to day horror of being alone ... fighting to survive. Many new and unique ideas of what it would be like to live after the destruction of man-kind. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent book. The only criticism is that the ending is so disappointing. I sequel would be great.
This book and the movie are basically 2 different stories that revolve around one theme. A new virus that infects people. Other than that it's not even the same story. The audio book is based on the original novel and the movie is a big Will Smith picture. I have listened to one version in the car, and saw the other at the cinema. Both are very good.
I picked this up after seeing the movie, like most people I think. However I thought that the book was a little slow. I enjoyed it but just be aware that it does take a little time to get into it.
