Description

In Matheson's vampire classic I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world and transformed the unfortunate survivors into bloodthirsty creatures of the night. Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth. Every other man, woman, and child has become a vampire hungry for Neville's blood. By day he is the hunter, stalking the sleeping undead through the abandoned ruins of civilization. By night he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn. How long can one man survive in a world of vampires?

This recording also includes a sampling of other horror stories by Richard Matheson, some comic, all scary: "Buried Talents", "The Near Departed", "Prey", "Witch War", "Dance of the Dead", "Dress of White Silk", "Mad House", "The Funeral", "From Shadowed Places", and "Person to Person".

Not what I expected

if you are expecting the movie, turn around now. if you want an original take on vampires continue on. the story itself is an interesting take on a post epidemic lonely mind. the short stories that follow are hit and miss, some are attention grabbing and trippy while the others are, to me, completely rabbit trails away from reality itself.

Fun & thrilling story

the story of I AM LENGEND in the first half of this book is terrific! The narration is emotional and believable.

however, the 2nd half of the book features short, anecdotal stories. They could have chosen a better narrator for the second half. I found his voice annoying and distracting. I found it hard to enjoy or focus on the stories and eventually I had to end without finishing

First half great, second not so much

The I am legend portion of this novel was great, a lot different than the movie however.


I wasn’t impressed with the “other stories.”

I am legend was an interesting listen, the rest no

the additional short stories seemingly of the same genre were no where's near the quality and seemed diluted, and difficult to finish

a tale of two voice actors.

the I am Legend story was masterfully done. the rest of the stories after were done by the most annoying voice I've ever heard in audio books. It was so bad as to be distracting.

A variety of eerie and creepy

If you are a fan of Tales from the Crypt, Stephen King, or the Twilight Zone, then you'll like this!
