©1954, 1982 by Richard Matheson; (P)2007 Blackstone Audio Inc.
"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)
This is one of the worst books I've ever read/listened to. The story line is old and recylced, this could be a 30 minute short story that is expanded beyond need. If you've seen Omega Man, Shawn of the Dead, 28 days later. Then you've seen this story. The only thing interesting about it is the very end, where the title is derived. I recomend saving your credits/money and skip this. Skip the movie to unless you really like Will Smith.
I would recommend watching the movie. This book is very different from the movie. I think if the movie had followed the exact story line from the book it would have been a waste. Yeah, the story was ok, but disappointing.
Go watch the movie, its cheaper, quicker and a heck of a lot more exciting. The book was just a diary of blandness, no scary jumps or thumps and will put you to sleep.
There was an old movie about a guy "Charlton Heston I think) Whos one of the only ones left in the world because of a plague, and albino infected ppl are attacking his house only at night because daylight kills them. Now his blood is the cure but they dont want to be cured. Bla bla bla.. The author just changed albinos to vampires an called it a day. Save your money and try to find out the name of the movie. In my opinon this book seemed a sad copy of the original. Shame on you.
