The views of the time when the book was published show in the writing: But at no point was I irritated by this old-fashioned edge, which stayed just barely from feeling a bit sexist.
I don't think Matheson searched for what the meaning of the names were for this story, but I did think that naming view spoiler [his main character Robert was a very good coincidence - it means "of shining fame" Germanic.

I haven't seen the movie which I understand is nothing like the book, which is too bad because I think the story is worthy of a good film. Aug 15, Carol.
SciFi and Fantasy Book Club monthly read. There are some excellent reviews out there. I know I was complaining about sqeeing and gifs recently, but I can't help but think a classic book like this could use a little modern reviewing.
I'm a little mixed in my reading reactions to a novella that feels more like a self-conscious allegorical tale than truly innovative storytelling.
The short, choppy prose suited the narrator, but gave a more limited ambiance to the setting. Given the protagonist Neville's relatively easy ability in m There are some excellent reviews out there.
Given the protagonist Neville's relatively easy ability in moving around the world seems to take a little siphoned gas and he's go to go , I felt like it was an incomplete story that left me with many questions about the world.
I do appreciate the sophisticated way Neville's personal history is blended in to the current experience, an impressive contrast to many writers who feel the need for long expository paragraphs, but I would have liked more.
The limited description leaves something lacking, perhaps the extent of the devastation. Is it enough that Neville feels isolated?
Do we need the steps of how he got there? What does 'humanity' mean if you are the only human? Why try to survive? I'm not sure, and as Neville poses these questions, I found myself wondering what he had done to find other survivors, the timeline of catastrophe, the extent of the world breakdown.
The spare depiction make me feel like it was more of a metaphorical tale, a study in the psychology of the individual and his coping with isolation and meaning without context of society.
In this respect, the movie was more able to give the visual sense of complete loneliness and the frustration of working for a potentially futile goal.
It was also hard to have sympathy for Neville. Truly an Everyman, he drowned his emotion in alcohol as often as he attempted to control circumstance.
I didn't admire or respect him; he was dogged but not creative or thoughtful. The lapses into existential questioning only reinforced the emotional distance.
The ending was a surprise; perhaps more likeable than that of the movie, but also more self-conscious and created. There wasn't much build to the ending; there was very little sense of the "types" of vampires through the story--I had more of a sense of Neville's drinking preferences than the vampires.
Still, it is a classic, so I'm glad I took the time to read it, but it feels a little too much like reading The Metamorphosis for my taste.

I realize this is one of the "classics" of science fiction or science fantasy and I don't care. I read it years ago and while I find the writing in places rates my recognition of it's quality I don't care for the book.

He is of course apparently the only one in the entire world to whom this happened. I just am really "underwhelmed" by this book, especially considering the "buzz" it always seems to get.
If you enjoy it, I'm happy for you, it is however not one I like. I think 2 stars are generous. View all 35 comments.
Yet again, I've been breaking the rules. This time, it wasn't on purpose! But I went into reading I Am Legend knowing the ending, knowing the twist.
Years ago, you see, my husband had wanted to talk about the book, probably when the most recent adaptation to movie form had come out, and I am well known for not reading horror, so it wasn't an unreasonable assumption that I would never read this.
So, wrong, in the long run, but it made reading this for the first time a very different experience tha Yet again, I've been breaking the rules.

I turned the first page of "I Am Legend" with zero knowledge of what Hollywood did to it because a friend of mine gave me an important warning.

He lives in a carefully barricaded house, stuffed wi Let me being this review by saying that I never saw any of the movie adaptations of this book.
He lives in a carefully barricaded house, stuffed with canned and frozen food, books and records, as well as a hothouse full of garlic.
He spends his days in the same monotonous way: When he's not doing that, he's using up all his stakes to kill the sleeping vampires in their dens.
His nights are spend listening to the vampires crawling around his house, fighting among each other and trying to lure him out. He's kind of on the edge of going insane when the book begins: He manages to hang on to sanity when he decides to approach the vampire situation from a scientific point of view: This goal carries him forward, until the day he finds himself face to face with someone else who can walk in the day time.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the prose: Matheson is succinct, but also very elegant, and he does built dramatic ramp ups of tension when you least expect it.
He also conveys Neville's emotions very well: I won't spoil anything, but there's an obvious lesson in this book: But more than the simple morals message, the thing that really stuck with me was the atmosphere of decay, paranoia and white-knuckle resistance to madness.
It would be so easy for Neville to give up: But he resists, he holes up, he fights back. The so-called twist can have more than one meaning: I also loved the way this book is a very self-aware vampire story.
Neville gets to wondering what the deal is with the stakes and the garlic, and can't find any rational reason for their effectiveness.
This little wink to the absurdity of the legends was a really nice touch of dark humor in what could have otherwise been a way too serious and depressing book.
If you like vampire stories, this is a classic that you shouldn't miss! A quick, but riveting read with a great ending. I still haven't watched any of the movies, and frankly, I don't intend to.
Following the outbreak of an incurable plague that has mutated every other human on earth into bloodthirsty, nocturnal creatures, Robert Neville must scavenge for food and supplies during the day, whilst hiding in his boarded-up, vampire-proof home at night.
Living a solitary life for so long is not easy, and so he is constantly on the look-out for fellow survivors This was a bu "The strength of the vampire is that no one will believe in him.
This was a buddy-read with my bestest friend, Abbie. We chose this because she is literally a speed-demon and if we had chose a long book, I would be lagging behind for too long!
Turns out, I did lag behind anyway because even though we both finished I Am Legend pretty close to each other, my edition also had a selection of short stories written by Richard Matheson.
So I'm only now "finishing" the entire book. I had watched the movie I Am Legend a number of years ago. All I can remember about it is Will Smith and a dog Although what I've found really weird about my reading experience is that I did not cast Will Smith as the role of Richard Neville in my head - Abbie said she did.
I really liked this book, which was surprising to me given that its basically focused on one character.
Usually I would find the lack of dialogue and conversation quite boring - although we did get some flashbacks to before the plague, which I particularly enjoyed, with some scenes being quite chilling.
Similar to what Abbie said, the constant drinking and throwing whiskey around and smashing glasses did start to grate on me after a while.
I understand his alcoholism - I'm pretty certain I might succumb to addiction myself if I was the lone survivor of some plague, but it just gets repetitive after a while.
What was disturbing to me was his weird fascination with the female "vampires" - DUDE. What the fuck is wrong with you!!
Okay, so I feel like the last paragraph had a lot of complaining, so I'll talk about what I loved. I was geeking out over Richard's thoughts about what possibly caused the plague.
He was basically conducting his own research and it was like reading my day-to-day experiences in the lab - disappointment after disappointment.
A theory that seems so promising quickly dispelled. Microbiology and bacteria are my forte, so his research around this area had me nodding along in agreement.
So that was awesome. The "vampires" themselves were pretty damn scary. I got confused at times because I was like "Are they vampires or zombies?
Or a mixture of both? As for the ending I was blown away. One of the best endings I've ever read in a book. It felt completely out of left-field and left me a bit gobsmacked.
I Am Legend was a great, quick read and I have to give it 5 stars out of 5. Matheson's writing is simply outstanding and I want to read more.
With regards to the short stories, some were great and some were not so great. Prey was a brilliant short story, it reminded me of Battleground by Stephen King.
Dance of the Dead was also pretty eerie. I didn't really include the short stories when giving my rating for this book, as I simply wanted to rate I Am Legend as a standalone book.
More Richard Matheson is definitely on my radar. Now for another buddy read with Sadie, Mindi and Ashley from bookstagram - can't wait!
One guy against a world filled with vampires. I went into this book with an expectation of action.
When the story had action scenes, they were done very well, and there is a wonderfully suspenseful and thrilling chase scene in the first half of the book.
However, action, suspense and thrills were absent for most of the rest of the book. There is sad reminiscing of his past life.
There is a long drawn out sequence of attempting to befriend a stray dog. There is lots of time spent getting drunk, list One guy against a world filled with vampires.
There is lots of time spent getting drunk, listening to classical music while complaining about the vampires.
The vampires mostly lack charisma, being more dumb brutes, than anything else view spoiler [ until late in the novel. There is not enough here for me to rate it higher.
Not a disaster, has a neat twist at the end, has some good sequences - but, I found it a bit of a snooze fest. Quickly he pushed a metal wagon up and down the silent, dust-thick aisles, the heavy smell of decay setting his teeth on edge, making him breathe through his mouth.
I have not seen the film yet but the title is very apt, if a little on the nose, perhaps. The above quote is an example of the feeling of loneliness that pervades throughout the narrative.
The vampires are created by view spoiler [a bacterial infection hide spoiler ]. For most of the book, there is no dialogue to speak of, we just follow Neville around, dispatching vampires in the daytime, doing research, locking himself in and getting blotto after sundown, feeling miserable all the time.
Is there a point to such an existence? Neville asks himself that from time to time and there is no obvious answer, he is simply not to suicidal type.
I Am Legend is a classic of several genres, sci-fi, horror, vampires, and post-apocalypse. I love the scientific rationalization of the classic vampire lore, the need for blood, the aversion to garlic and the cross, the stake through the heart etc.
The overtly supernatural lore like transformation into bats and the lack of reflection are dismissed as superstition.
In a world full of vampires with only one human being who is the monster really? The narrative is well paced, without a dull moment, but it is by no means an action-packed thriller.
Neville is something of an antihero, some of his actions and behavior are quite questionable and even downright reprehensible but the circumstances do make him quite a tragic and sympathetic figure.
There are some dramatic plot developments which I certainly will not elaborate on, and an ending which leaves you thinking about the morality of the tale.
I Am Legend is, of course, highly recommended. Talking about the various film adaptations: Four are listed at Wikipedia: It does star Vincent Price, and the Price is always right!
In both the Omega Man and the Will Smith movies the vampires are replaced entirely. The movie replaced them with light-sensitive goth weirdo hipsters, while the movie replaced them with big eared monsters.
At least the Heston movie is a hoot. One of them Neville found inside a display freezer. When he saw the man lying there in this enamel coffin, he had to laugh; it seemed such a funny place to hide.
Later, he thought of what a humorless world it was when he could find amusement in such a thing. He had forty-seven stakes.
He was his own ethic. Season 3 Saturday Night Live: Season 4 The Walking Dead: I Am Legend View All Photos Adapted from acclaimed author Richard Matheson's influential novelette of the same name, Constantine director Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend follows the last man on Earth as he struggles to survive while fending off the infected survivors of a devastating vampiric plague.
A brilliant scientist who raced to discover a cure for the man-made virus as humanity came crumbling down all around him, Robert Neville Will Smith was inexplicably immune to the highly contagious superbug.
Now the entire population of New York City -- and perhaps the world -- has been transformed into carnivorous bloodsuckers that fear the light and live solely to spread their contagion to any remaining living creature that crosses their path.
It's been three years since civilization came to an end, and the loneliness has taken a devastating toll on Neville. By day he scours the city for food and supplies while sending out desperate radio messages in hopes that someone might respond, and by night he attempts to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus by experimenting with his own blood.
But time is running out for Neville as the legions of infected watch his every move from the safety of the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
They, too, long to learn the secret that lurks in Neville's blood, though they will have to take caution while attempting to procure it because Neville will sooner die attempting to slay every last one of them than willingly giving up a single drop.

Everyone had a story about the Krays. You could walk into any pub to hear a lie or two about them. But I was there and Im not careless with the truth.
They were brothers, but bound by more than blood. They were twins as well, counterparts. There's something of On the Beach and Resident Evil and of any number of disaster movies and zombie movies here.
But none of them do justice to the New York depicted here. This is a New York City we see large-scale and micro-scale in order to show us the environment in which the main character is acting.
And Will Smith is simply brilliant as the sole survivor, Robert Neville. Will delivers movingly and convincingly on a script that really focuses on giving us a picture of "what it would be like" This is the real strength of this movie: Every moment was full of pathos and full of menace, too.
And occasionally we got some relief from Smith's trademark humor that blended seamlessly with the rest of his performance to give us "what it would be like" with a powerful delivery that just leaves me almost breathless.
There's an effective use of flashbacks that partly tell us the story of how we got to where we're at in this grim New York City; and the flashbacks also serve to give us an overwhelming contrast between Life Before and Life After the apocalyptic disaster wiped out the city.
Yet use of flashback was sparing, which I found all the more effective. Cinematography was excellent throughout, the storyline and script are brilliant, the use of a dog, Samantha, as a key actor was perfect to show us both Robert as companion and Robert as lonely, isolated survivor.
I won't give away the ending, but think it was satisfying as far as it goes, but not nearly as appealing, from my angle, as the foregoing material.
That brings up my one complaint: By the end of the movie, we have some sense of the meaning of the title. Yet it still seems to me to feel cheesy and really unworthy of the movie.
But that's a minor plaint. If you haven't seen this movie, and would enjoy seeing a really powerful story about a survivor in post-apocalypse New York City, hey, go check out this flick.
