I Am Legend Book

by Carol
(AL, US)

If you like vampires then you would love to read I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. Way better than that Dracula book by Brahm Stoker or Salem's Lot by Stephen King or The Passage by Justin Cronin. The Last Vampire was alright but nothing compares to I am Legend.

The book just seems to take you into another world of horror and survival. It has every element you could ever want in a vampire story. Passion and horror, suspense and many shocking twists. It just keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time you're reading it.

I couldn't put the book down once I picked it up. The book just sucks you in and you definitely get emotionally invested in the characters. I even cried while reading it. If you love getting involved in a good story about vampires, I recommend this book.

The plot is just amazing. A man in a constant fight to survive against these creatures that seem to want nothing more than to end all life, including his, and destroy what's left of humanity. I couldn't imagine living life always fighting to stay alive.

It’s a story that really gets to you and that's one of the things I love most about it. It's the kind of book I could just read over and over again. Whenever I finish it I feel like I'm missing out on the adventure and that kind of adventure is hard to find in books.

There's times when I'm reading the book I feel like my own life is in danger like I'm really there. That's part of the emotional investment and plot I like. Actually I love the plot in this book. It saves a lot of surprises for you and there's nothing I hate more about a book than a boring and expected plot.

The only downside I see about I am Legend is that it isn't longer. It would be even greater if they could somehow come up with a sequel. A good sequel. The only problem with that is I don't think anyone would be able to come up with anything good enough to compete with I am Legend though.

I'm sure anyone who reads I am Legend will love it as much as me but you'll have to read it yourself to know.
