"One of the ten all-time best novels of vampirism." (Fangoria)
"The most clever and riveting vampire novel since Dracula." (Dean Koontz)
"I think the author who influenced me most as a writer was Richard Matheson. Books like I Am Legend were an inspiration to me." (Stephen King)
I was going to see the movie, but decided to get the book instead. As usual, I'm happy I did so. The narration of this book really sets the mood for the story. The story is believable enough for a zombie book and avoids the cliche moments found in so many other zombie flicks/stories. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys the horror genre.
This was a great book, the narrator really added to the story emotionally and the descriptions of the author were good. I don't normally go for horror type stories, but this kept my attention.
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!
This auidioversion of I am Legend is well read and very enjoyable. The haunting loneliness is well conveyed. If you have just seen the movie I recommend the book, it's so much better.
Thouroughly enjoyed it. Some great suspense in parts and a fascinating take on the vampire legend.
If you like plausibility in your sci fi fantasy, you'll like this one.
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.
