    "Read I am Legend or The Shrinking Man Not this"

    I am Legend and The Shrinking Man are really good books. This does not come even close to those two. This is sad and depressing. RM gives us a version of Heaven and Hell and tries not to upset any religion or group of people. Heaven and Hell are all what you make it in your head and what you believe in. This might make a good lecture, but as a story it was just boring. There is no conflict, no plot or plot twists. In trying to please everybody, RM pleases no one.

    "Poor ending"

    This book was fairly good syfi until the last hour or so. The author then goes into religious rantings that detract from the rest of a good book.

    "BOOORING!!!"

    OMG! I wanted to watch the movie, but I wanted to read the book first. The book version is usually MUCH better and more detailed. I can tell you now, that is a movie I will NEVER see. I want my credit and my time back. Don't waste yours.
