Présentation de l'éditeur
An acclaimed SF novel about vampires. The last man on earth is not alone ...
Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth ... but he is not alone. Every other man, woman and child on the planet has become a vampire, and they are hungry for Neville's blood.
By day he is the hunter, stalking the undead through the ruins of civilisation. By night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn.
How long can one man survive like this?
The SF classic that inspired the blockbuster vampire movie starring Will Smith--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
Biographie de l'auteur
Richard Matheson (1926 - )
Richard Matheson was born in 1926. He began publishing SF with his short story 'Born of Man and Woman' which appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1950. I Am Legend was published in 1954 and has been adapted to film three times. Matheson wrote the script for the film The Incredible Shrinking Man, an adaptation of his second SF novel The Shrinking Man (published in 1956). The film won a Hugo award in 1958. He wrote many screenplays (including The Fall of the House of Usher) as well as episodes of The Twilight Zone. He continued to write short stories and novels, some of which formed the basis for film scripts, including Duel, directed by Steven Spielberg in 1971. Further SF short stories were collected in The Shores of Space (1957) and Shock! (1961). His other novels include Hell House (1971) (filmed as The Legend of Hell House in 1973), Bid Time Return (1975), Earthbound (1982) and Journal of the Gun Years (1992). A film of his novel What Dreams May Come (1978) was released in 1998, starring Robin Williams. A collection of his stories from the 1950s and 1960s was released in 1989 as Richard Matheson: Collected Stories.

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.
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.
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.
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. Dear readers, this reader has disclosed only 30% of what happens and follows.
This is a short but very, very rich book and a superior piece of nonsense, which is what SF is about. Richard Matheson (b. 1926) is an SF-icon and a very productive and successful book-, screen- and short story writer. This reader is no great fan of SF, but this is a true masterpiece!
