    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".

    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

    ¡Unexpected!

    Having seen the movie I sort of expected a similar story line and developing of events, but I was surprised to find a more immersively psychological and emphatic unfolding of Robert Neville's survival on earth: The last of his kind!

    If you are up for an obscure and thrilling story, this is for you!

    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.

    still so relevant

    I was familiar with all the later versions of the story but this is easily my favorite. so personal, heartbreaking and timeless. I honestly didn't know fear, confusion and humor could coexist so enticingly. listen on!

    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.”

    It’s just okay

    I did not listen to the short stories on here because I read the reviews before me and it seemed like that would be the way to go. (Too many negative reviews)
    I Am Legend was a decent story. There were parts of the story: the ending, the woman, and the close call: that I really enjoyed.
    But it being one character through most of the book made it uninteresting at times. This book has made me realize that I really enjoy characters and their development because in this one there is only one true character to get to know and I feel like maybe that wasn’t enough for me.

    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

    Lack of Vocabulary and Monotone

    I’m pretty convinced the author only knows about 3 words: palsy, flesh, and liquor. The narrator is monotone, and his voice is like nails on a chalk board. I couldn’t listen to more than 2.5 hours of this, it was so awful.

    Thought breaking compilation

    A collection of short stories that have inspired many stories you may have read, heard or watched.

    With the first story “I Am Legend” Matheson gives some unique takes on certain fare that can often be trite and formulaic. There was a particular thing about a common creature mentioned that led me to think of some questions which he later expands on. This is not uncommon in stories but was one of those moments that made me wonder why so many others authors treat the same characters with in the bland way they often do.

    The rest of the stories range from horror to thriller in an gripping way. Give it a listen.
