    Read books I Am Legend – thetributepages.co.uk I’m not much of what you might call a “vampire guy” By which I mean both that I am not a vampire or a guy who likes vampires or vampire themed endeavors Thus it stands to reason that I never would have read Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend had not the wildcard of my book club chosen it as this month’s selection Frankly I was a little underwhelmed by the choice The critical “blurbs” did not help matters along Dean Koo

N is definitely on my radar Now for another buddy read with Sadie Mindi and Ashley from bookstagram can t wait I was oing to rate the book a lukewarm 3 stars but then I looked once at the date of publication 1954 and reconsidered A bit of historical perspective of literary context elevates this novel to the well deserved enre classic status At the time Matheson published his science fiction take on the othic vampire myth the market was a lot different from today s oversaturated landscape that has largely trivialized the subject and Animal Babies gave it a curious teenage romance slant Even bringing in the scientific method of study for the phenomenon and its associated paraphernalia the bloodsucking thearlic the cross the wooden stake the fear of light the sleeping underground the bullet invulnerability was probably a novel approach to a dusty theme Something black and of the night had come crawling out of the Middle Ages Something with no framework or credulity something that had been consigned fact and figure to the pages of imaginative literature Vampires were passe Summers idylls or Stoker s melodramatics or a brief inclusion in the Britannica or rist for the pulp writer s mill or raw material for the B film factories A tenuous legend passed #from century to century I didn t much care for the prose it is concise #century to century I didn t much care for the prose it is concise clear in its presentation of the main themes but I found it lackluster and unconvincing when it tried to delve deeper into emotional intensity for the main character I could also complain about the lack of action but I believe this is a novel about ideas than a high octane action thriller To finish with the rumbling I would have liked a rigorous attempt with the scientific speculations Most of the ideas are sound but the way they are fitted together seems fishy with some of the argumentation incomplete Let me qasas-ul-quran give you a few examples vampires are destroyed by sunlight yet when they are hidden in deep cellars and dark places during the day they are still handicapped the transmission is supposed to be airborne yet two other theories areiven eual importance direct contact with open wounds and insect bites mosuitoes bullet wounds are instantly healed didn t they have exploding ammo in 1954 yet knife cuts are still bleeding the disease affects the brain but in a curious way speech is unimpeded yet the use of tools is lost and social interaction is lostThe last one is the one I struggled with the most Other reviewers noticed also that the monsters are closer in behaviour to zombies than to classic vampires Cesar Romero cites the book as a primary source Stephen King alsao makes reference to itOn the positive side two aspects of the novel stand out and will probably come *to define it for me in later years as the actual *define it for me in later years as the actual of the plot will fade from memory the psychological pressure of being the last man on earth Richard Neville is utterly alone he has nobody to turn to has lost his wife and kid in horrible circumstances yet he must find the resources inside himself to o on living from day to day His heavy drinking his episodes of paranoid depression and self destructive rage are painfull to watch as are his efforts to organize his daily routines with checklists and his obsession in hunting Ecome a vampire and they are hungry for Neville's bloodBy day he is the hunter stalking the undead through the ruins

The strength the vampire is that no one will believe in himRobert Neville is the last man on earthor is he Following the outbreak of an incurable plague that has mutated every other human on earth into bloodthirsty nocturnal creatures Robert Neville must scavenge for food and supplies during the day whilst hiding in his boarded up vampire proof home at night Living a solitary life for so long is not easy and so he is constantly on the look out for fellow survivorsThis was a buddy read with my bestest friend Abbie We chose this because she is literally a speed demon and if we had chose a long book I would be *lagging behind for too long Turns out I did lag behind anyway because *behind for too long Turns out I did lag behind anyway because though we both finished I Am Legend pretty close to each other my edition also had a selection of short stories written by Richard Matheson So I m only now finishing the entire bookI had watched the movie I Am Legend a number of years ago All I can remember about it is Will Smith and a dog and that s it Although what I ve found really weird about my reading experience is that I did not cast Will Smith as the role of Richard Neville in my head Abbie said she didI really liked this book which was surprising to me iven that its basically focused on one character Usually I would find the lack of dialogue and conversation uite boring although we did Dead-End Road Mysteries get some flashbacks to before the plague which I particularly enjoyed with some scenes being uite chilling Similar to what Abbie said the constant drinking and throwing whiskey around and smashinglasses did start to Hear the Wolves grate on me after a while I understand his alcoholism I m pretty certain I might succumb to addiction myself if I was the lone survivor of some plague but it justets repetitive after a while What was disturbing to me was his weird fascination with the female vampires DUDE What the fuck is wrong with youOkay so I feel like the last paragraph had a lot of complaining so I ll talk about what I loved I loved the SCIENCE I was Valors Measure geeking out over Richard s thoughts about what possibly caused the plague He was basically conducting his own research and it was like reading my day to day experiences in the lab disappointment after disappointment A theory that seems so promising uickly dispelled Microbiology and bacteria are my forte so his research around this area had me nodding along in agreement So that was awesome The vampires themselves were pretty damn scary Iot confused at times because I was like Are they vampires or zombies Or a mixture of both There were different types and it just wasn t explained very clearly at timesAs for the endingWOW I was blown away One of the best endings I ve ever read in a book It felt completely out of left field and left me a bit BFI Film Classics gobsmacked AMAZING I Am Legend was areat uick read and I have to Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan give it 5 stars out of 5 Matheson s writing is simply outstanding and I want to read With regards to the short stories some werereat and some were not so وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله great Prey was a brilliant short story it reminded me of Battleground by Stephen King Dance of the Dead was also pretty eerie I didn t really include the short stories wheniving my rating for this book as I simply wanted to rate I Am Legend as a standalone bookBut yes More Richard Matheso. Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth but he is not alone Every other man woman and child on the planet has Own his afflicted neighbours when they are incapacitated during the day The episode of the feral dog is probably the best written part of the whole novel the implications resulting from the demotion of humanity from the top of the food chain something that I have remarked upon in another classic I read earlier this year The Day of the Triffids Normalcy was a majority concept the standard of many and not the standard of just one man exclaims Neville towards the end of the novel when he
