I Am Legend


This needs to be read slowly.

Being the last man on Earth among thousands or millions of Vampires. Surviving. Struggling to keep your sanity. Being unable to hope and being unable to give up hope. Classical music to drown out the screams of monsters outside.

Matheson describes a truly horrific world. He doesn't give much detail and lets the reader use their imagination between the lines. This made the book even stronger for me.

Has aged very well and is still very much a classic. Wholly deserving of its awards.

Highly recommended.
