Listening to this story is different from reading it. Listening allowed me to connect to the narrator more, and feel more involved in the story. Reading it allowed me to be critical and judge the narrator more clearly. Both experiences were worthwhile.
The reading was great -- Robertson Dean really captures the emotion and hectic fraying of the character's identity.
The movie was much better than the book. Which is a first. Usually the book is always better than the movie version but not in this case. The story was just too slow and boring. I wish I had known prior that the movie and book are two completely different stories.
The fact the story felt like it was written on our time
Narration was great. I could feel the character
Enjoyable book. One that surprised me when I found out when it was written
I would have to say this is one of the best audiobooks I've heard so far.
Well, of course, the ending was the most memorable. And scenes with the dog that he tried to get to become his companion.
The main character.
Never Give Up
This was a great story, a great narration, and an audio version I will never forget.....and will listen to again.
Love Books and listen while working out and on the way to and from work
Great story, incredible narrations. This is a must listen even if you are not a horror fan.
Mommy of twins
This is definitely more of a hunting vampire tale then one of gore, action or romance. One man, Robert Neville, has survived a plague virus that after killing, resurrects its victims as blood suckers. I AM LEGEND is Neville’s skillfully told horrifying and sad account of the end of the human world; as he struggles to hold on to his own sanity.
The despair and loneliness of Neville is almost too much to take at times, as he borders on giving up and slipping into madness. And although genre as a horror, I found I AM LEGEND more gut-wrenching and heartbreaking then anything. I truly appreciated Matheson’s emotional writing style, as he completely captivated me with Neville’s bleak story.
*I have yet to see the highly acclaimed Will Smith movie version of I AM LEGEND, although I do hear it’s a bit different from the book. I’m now intrigued...
The story and narration was outstanding!
This is an outstanding audiobook! The story is first rate and the narration is outstanding. The narrator brought the Neville to life in the story. I listen to this book every October. The last few minutes of the book sends chills up my spine every time I listen to it as Neville realizes what he has become! Simply brilliant!
Yes.. Robertson Dean's voice is very nice to listen to.
The end.. The title says it all.
The only character... Robert Neville
When he remembered his wife.
I saw the movie with Will Smith.. this was nothing like it ... other than the dog.
Don't get me wrong I love the Will Smith version of the movie. But this book is so much better & i wish they would make a version like this.
This is Sarah
Yes. It's a classic story, well performed, and very engrossing.
When one realizes how much in our popular culture is derived from this one book. Pretty much all modern zombies (......even including the more recent fast-running zombies!) and several whole sub genres of fiction.
When everyone dies at the end. (Just kidding). All scenes are pretty darn good.
Might be a bit long for that, but it's hard to stop listening.
This narrator has to be the best audio book narrator I've heard up to this point. Every voice and inflection is just about perfect, including the character's inner thoughts.
