One of the most influential vampire novels of the 20th century, I Am Legend regularly appears on the "10 Best" lists of numerous critical studies of the horror genre. As Richard Matheson's third novel, it was first marketed as science fiction (for although written in 1954, the story takes place in a future 1976). A terrible plague has decimated the world, and those who were unfortunate enough to survive have been transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Except, that is, for Robert Neville. He alone appears to be immune to this disease, but the grim irony is that now he is the outsider. He is the legendary monster who must be destroyed because he is different from everyone else. Employing a stark, almost documentary style, Richard Matheson was one of the first writers to convince us that the undead can lurk in a local supermarket freezer as well as a remote Gothic castle. His influence on a generation of bestselling authors--including Stephen King and Dean Koontz--who first read him in their youth is, well, legendary. --Stanley Wiater

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Robert Neville has witnessed the end of the world. The world's population has been obliterated by a vampire virus, though Neville has somehow survived. As he toils to make sense of it all and protect himself against the hounding vampires who seek out his life force, Neville embarks on a series of projects to discover the source of the plague and hopefully put an end to the vampires. In a tale that plays with the slippery slope of sanity, Dean makes the perfect choice for a narrator. His powerful performance proves chilling and haunting. As Neville teeters on the edge of sanity, Dean manipulates his tone, speed, emphasis and projection accordingly, making listeners tremble with his narration. While some might rebuke his narration for being too dramatic or providing too much interpretation, Dean's intensity adds to the book in a way that benefits listeners over readers. The visceral nature of his performance evokes the image of a foamy-mouthed Dean growling at a microphone with spittle flying. A Tor paperback. (Oct.)

... but one I may have read too early and too late to fully appreciate its ground-breaking quality. However it is a very very good survival book, in a world completely overtaken with vampires.
Robert Neville still lives while his family is undead and dead, Robert Neville is tortured by his sex drive, Robert Neville smokes and gets drunk - as a 12-year old girl, I couldn't empathize much. As a 35 year old, I admire Matheson's maestria and psychological insight. The things that give him hope, the things that almost destroy him. His scientific frenzy, elegantly answering many of our XX century reader's minds. And an ending that is truly original compared to more recent such stories.

Suite à une étrange épidémie, très contagieuse, les êtres humains sont devenus vampires. Un seul survivant reste intouché, Robert Neville, calfeutré dans sa grande maison au coeur d'une ville morte, qui cherche de la nourriture et des matériaux pour survivre le jour et empêche les vampires d'entrer chez lui la nuit. Une lutte épuisante, que nous suivons, étape par étape, et déchirante, quand Robert reconnaît un voisin, un camarade de classe, ou un commerçant qu'il côtoyait dans sa vie de tous les jours avant l'épidémie.
L'histoire ne nous laisse pas de répit, c'est un livre qui se boit, qui se lit en deux jours sans sommeil, et qui préfigure bien d'autres livres dans cette veine ensuite, dont l'excellent The Passage , qui reprend l'idée du virus, mais lui donne un tour très différent - on y retrouvera cependant l'ambiance féroce de "I am legend".
A lire, si ce n'est déjà fait !

I Am Legend was a decently good book in my opinion, a little hard to follow at some points,but what do you expect reading a book about the last man on earth. It had a good story line, and a fairly good ending and i would recommend reading it. It was also very interesting with the fact that the author took real superstitions about vampires and was able to put scientific meaning behind each of them. Lastly, i don't recommend anyone to go watch the movie, seeing as it sparsely follows the storyline of the book, and has a completely different ending!! I'd also recommend reading Tino Georgiou's bestselling novel--The Fates--if you haven't yet!

C'est un livre d'anticipation qui emmène le lecteur dans les confins des questionnements identitaires. Comment survivre la perte des siens, la fin de l'ordre, la fin de son monde et du monde dans un environnement hostile et effrayant?
L'histoire étonnamment moderne, quoiqu'écrite en 1954 nous ramène vers nos questionnements actuels sur la science et sur la survie humaine. Sommes nous trop arrogants? Allons nous subir le courroux de l'au delà?
Je n'ai pas réussi à poser le livre avant de l'avoir fini, un classique avant gardiste.

First published in 1954, this SF-novel -situated between 1986 and 1989- has been filmed 3 times. According to SF-fans, no film, not even the one starring Will Smith, betters the original, this book, which this reader finds truly scary.

A mysterious, deadly disease has spread worldwide and there is only one survivor, Robert Neville (RN) living in a suburb of LA. He lost his wife and daughter in the pandemic. His immunity may stem from surviving a bite from a vampire bat in Panama. Who knows? There is no one left he can ask.
In daylight Robert is safe and can move about on foot or by car through deserted streets, take whatever he needs from abandoned supermarkets, shops, libraries, to defend himself against what happens when night falls.

Because after dark RN is on the defensive and prays for daybreak to come. Each morning he checks and repairs damage to his home inflicted by crowds of mutated victims of the pandemic led by a former colleague and friend, who resemble in many respects the vampires described in Bram Stoker's classic novel `Dracula'. After nightfall the living dead gather outside his barricaded home protected by light bulbs, homegrown garlic and crosses. They howl all night for him to come out, throw stones, try to invade his home to feed on his blood...

RN is both a despairing and an organized person. With his house made nearly impregnable and gradually managing his chain smoking and binge drinking (with 2.000 cartons of cigarettes stacked in his late daughter's bedroom and unlimited access to booze in daytime), RN becomes a researcher, using the massive, silent library and specialized shops to get the material needed to figure out what exactly is the matter with the mutants he finds dead on his lawn each morning. Etc., etc.

I first watched the movie and then, after researching about the original novel, bought the book. I was very intrigued by the story line and my expectations of the book were not disappointed.
Actually, the book is much better than the movie, particularly as the ending of the book takes an unexpected turn.
There are a few things that bugged me about the story though, which ultimately prevented me from giving this book a higher rating.
Although the main character and his struggle with sanity and accepting the obvious changes of reality is wonderfully developed, the supporting characters in this book, human and otherwise, are not nearly developed enough for me to be totally convincing and in-line with the first, solitary part of the book. The end, although unexpected and intriguing, seemed very rushed and little elaborated to me. Nothing during the course of the book had actually even hinted at this somewhat surprise ending.
Overall it is a good read, I can recommend it for leisure time reading with an unexpected twist.
