From out of the night came the living dead with one purpose: destroy Robert Neville, the last man on earth. A mysterious plague has swept the planet leaving in its wake this one survivor. But there is still life of a sort--vampires, the strengthless half-dead who press on Neville from every side. He is almost tempted to join them in I AM LEGEND. It started simply enough in THE SHRINKING MAN. One moment Scott Carey was in the sunlight, the next he was being soaked by a warm, glittering spray.

Richard Matheson brings vividly to life that ancient terror of the unknown." (Publisher's Source)

4.0 I Am Legend
First let me say if you saw either of the I am Legend or Omega Man movies, you owe it ro yourself to read this book.This book is the start of the whole apocalyptic zombie/vampire genre and in my opinion the best. Nothing since has matched it for not only the horror of the plot but also the humanity ...

3.0 I Am Legend
I don't know if I'm just biased because I saw the movie first, but this wasn't as great as I expected. It was an enjoyable enough read though.
