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?

"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
"second story great"
second story really keeps you going. the main story quite different from the movie. I would like to see what else he has written
"the movie was actually better. "
MadHouse (other story) was better than the main feature. but it was worth the read
"Ruined by narration"
People who like bad narration.
No, the narration of the stories after I am Legend was so bad I stopped listening.
