4.0 out of 5 stars It is Legend, 28 Mar 2012
This review is from: I Am Legend (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I first read this story about ten years ago and again recently - it loses non of its atmosphere the second time round.

Robert Neville is the only non-infected person left after a plague hits the world. He forages by day and holes up in his fortified house when darkness threatens. With the night comes the infected, calling for him to come out. I found his relationship with Ben Cortman, his friend in life but enemy in death to be amusing.

The story is never action packed however the scenes written are well thought out and emotional. For me the scene about the dog was tense, enjoyable and eventually very sad.

It touches on all human emotions and comes across as being very realistic.

The story was written in the fifties and set in the seventies and does not resemble the movie, I Am Legend.

Worth the money, worth a read and most definitely thought provoking.
