Readers can’t put down I Am Legend:

A classic of several genres, sci-fi, horror, vampires, and post-apocalypse. I love the scientific rationalization of the classic vampire lore’ Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ?

‘I certainly understand why Richard Matheson is regarded as a master of the horror genre and why even THE Stephen King looked up to him as an inspiration . . . If you like horror, suspense and the macabre, then my dear reader please give this book a try’ Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ?

‘Less about vampires. More about mental breakdown. An excellent horror story‘ Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ?

‘Neville is a very interesting protagonist. You really want to root for him that he will survive. I don’t want to spoil you, but the ending will definitely hit you like a one-two punch‘ Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ?

‘It’s about a man dealing with stress, nightmarish circumstances and his will to not just live, but to survive. Matheson tells a tale of isolation, desperation, perseverance and ultimately, absolution‘ Goodreads reviewer, ? ? ? ? ?
