"Better than the film. Much better. "
I really enjoyed both the story and the narration. It has a lot of depth and kept me at the edge of my seat throughout. It's what I call "proper literature" ; yes it's a technical term. On a serious note, the metaphors for the society, for the societal political changes and changes in mental attitudes between generations are captured with beautiful poignant painful accuracy. I come back to this audiobook no doubt in the future.
You think you know the story, but this is still the daddy of the modern vampire/zombie/apocalypse novel. Intelligent, heartbreaking, surprising and a must read.
"A must really"
Yes, as it stands the test of time, and gives the starting point of all the popular vampire stories since. A classic
The previous unliked neighbour who was now a vampire, slightly comedic and annoying, so still just like a neighbour.
His tone and pace. perfect
I skipped through the bit with the dog, I had to skip through that
"Excellent book, expertly read."
I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator's telling of this story. He had excellent pacing, and an engaging, dynamic tone that changed and suited the moods and drama of the book.
"Wish i had never seen the movie, this was so good"
first few chapters had me right on edge
the depth of the character
I listened when commuting
when his old friend shouts out to him
wish I had never seen the movie. this was 1000 times better
I loved this book - a great story and I found myself with my earphones permanently attached.
"Robertson narrates I Am Legend with unique skill"
Loved it! The book captures all aspects of emotions when dealing with isolation. Must-Read/Listen Masterpiece.
"sometimes the film is actually better"
I thought this would inform me but after a while its phony intensity just bored me
not for me
"Not my usual genre, read for a book reading group."
No, found the book ok but not my thing.
Quite tense at times and frightening, gripping. But a bleak world and no one could be trusted.
brilliant story well told and well researched. totally believeable. i loved it. narrated brilliantly too.
