Publisher Description

Winner of the Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award for best vampire novel of the century: the genre-defining classic of horror sci-fi that inspired three films.
 
The population of the entire world has been obliterated by a pandemic of vampire bacteria. Yet somehow, Robert Neville survived. He must now struggle to make sense of what happened and learn to protect himself against the vampires who hunt him nightly.
 
As months of scavenging and hiding turn to years marked by depression and alcoholism, Robert spends his days hunting his tormentors and researching the cause of their affliction. But the more he discovers about the vampires around him, the more he sees the unsettling truth of who is—and who is not—a monster.
 
Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend has been a major influence on horror literature. In 2012, it was named the best vampire novel of the century by the Horror Writers Association and the Bram Stoker Estate. The novel was adapted to film in 1964 as The Last Man on Earth, in 1971 as Omega Man, and in 2007 as I am Legend, starring Will Smith.

Am book reader ,

Classic cult favorite

I read this many years ago and just reread it and it still gives me chills. Matheson wrote many great horror stories, there are several collected works of his short stories and novels worth looking into if you’re a horror fan.

Love it!

I had to forget about the movie altogether and read from the beginning like it was a totally different story. I saw the movie years ago and glad I did. I would have been so disappointed in the adaptation. Since I’ve read it now, I see it as an unrelated story and unique in itself. Loved it!
