I am Legend
 from Los Alamos, NM,  Sep 20, 2012

One of the all-time great end-of-world-vampire stories -- a novella. Horrifying, but methodical, with extremely surprising ending. Made into films "Omega Man" and "I am Legend." Neither followed the book that closely. The book is much better than either film.

Decent Movie, But not up to the Book
 from Pennsylvanian Houstonian,  Apr 17, 2008

I've enjoyed this story since I was a young teen. Great twist at the end in the book. It truly all falls together in the LAST THREE WORDS. If you don't know the story, get the book and read it first, then go ahead and get this movie, but read the book first.. The movie doesn¿t have the twist. Will Smith almost always does a great job. And the imagery of an empty New York is fantastic. There are one or two nods to ¿The Omega Man¿, the 70¿s version starring the late but great Charlton Heston, (Smith mouthing the words to ¿Shrek¿ on his DVD player reminded me of Heston mouthing the words to ¿Woodstock¿ in the abandoned movie theater), but this version steered well away from anything resembling true intelligence in the antagonists. The zombie/vampire/nocturnal hive seemed to act in more of an advanced state of instinct, like the dinosaurs in the ¿Jurassic Park¿ series, rather than the speaking thinking beings in the book and Heston versions. In terms of story, The Omega Man and the Will Smith movie versions are fine in their own right, but I prefer the nuance of the original Matheson version. Understood some of the science might be hard to capture on film, certainly Neville¿s inner thoughts would be hard to emote, but none of the films to date have truly aspired to apply the final twist of the original work. (Do yourself a favor, if you get the book, and I highly recommend it, DO NOT READ THE LAST PAGE TILL YOU GET THERE...!!!) I hope to watch the Vincent Price version ¿The Last Man on Earth¿ this weekend. I hear it¿s close to the original, screenplay partly by Matheson himself, but doesn¿t quite capture that ¿twist.¿ It¿s a great twist¿¿. Did I say that already? Did I use this critique already?

I am legend
 from miami,fl,  Oct 14, 2007

This is an amazing book, i highly recommend it! [it's obviously way better than how they're going to make the movie since they didn't exactly keep the story true to the book.]I finished reading it in 2 days, i was so interested, i had to know how the book ended.

I Am Legend
 from Peru, Il,  Jul 24, 2007

A series of short stories about Vampires and Paranormal. I personally felt that tho the stories were unique, I was looking for a different kind of book. I gave it 5 stars because it was worth the price and value to anyone who was into this kind of book.

I AM LEGEND
 from Sterling, VA,  Feb 2, 2008

I had only seen the ads for the movie and should have looked into it a little more. I found it VERY boring. Also, there are other boring short stories after this one ends in the book.
