Like Lucy this rating is gonna take some splainin Unfortunately I don t have a slide show or any multi colored pie charts to provide visual assistance on this one so I will try to splain it as clearly as I can but I will be using uite a few ie and eg to provide supporting clarification for my commentary given I am performing this review without the safety net of visual aids Please do not try this at home Oh I ve also decided to throw in the occasional word in Spanishwhy you askbecause I just watched some old I Love Lucy re runs and am getting in touch with my inner Ricky Ricardo Okay from the standpoint of pure smile spreading enjoyment eg while reading I look down and notice my toes tapping involuntarily to the smooth jazzy melodic flow of the narrative I would probably rate this 3 to 35 stars ie there was no visible toe tapping but I did have the occasional feeling of warmth move through my tummy though that could ve just been the tacos Richard Matheson is a terrific writer and this story like his others is a uality product and I have zero complaints about the prose or the technical choices he made took in constructing the narrative My issue was really with the main character Robert Neville He just wasn t very compelling or interesting He certainly wasn t the most engaging character I have ever come across This is a bit of a problem since the entire book is spent lollygagging around with Robby as he provides running jogging sauntering commentary about the world around him This was a negative for me and detracted from the number of happy units I was able to mine from the reading experience So why the 40 to 45 stars I shall splain as there are several reasons that are mucho importante Oh yeahthat s right I just turned this into my first bilingual review How cosmopolitan First Primero is the plot This book written in 1954 was the genesis for EVERY zombie book that follows and provides the basic framework for most of the post apocalyptic undead fiction being produced today Amazingly it is also one of the best of these stories despite being the first Here is the basic plot or argumento Robert Neville is the sole survivor of a pandemic that struck the world and caused the infected to exhibit all the outward signs of vampirism vampirismo He spends his days gathering supplies fortifying his house and killing the sleeping vampires and spends his nights barricaded in his house and fending off attacks from the walking dead Sound familiar Well this is the book that started it all and I felt that deserved some serious recognition for both its originality and Matheson s being a trailblazer pionero of the zombie sub genre Second Segundo is the world buildingback story and Matheson s explanation of both the plague and the vampires which I thought was nothing short of EXCELENTE ie magnifico While certainly not good science in the sense that it can be analyzed objectively the explanations given are compelling and superb theater I actually wish time had been spent on this aspect of the book because I thought it was just fant stico ieif you need a translation of this please stop reading and go put the crash helmet back on Third Tercero is the end of the book which in my opinion is worthy of 5 HUGE stars all by itself I would say that goes double for the very last line of the book which I think makes it a 10 MEGANORMOUS star ending if my math is correct Thus Matheson being the superb writer that he is not only invents a sub genre but then over 50 years after the fact can still claim to have written one of the best most original examples of it That is pretty especial no Thus for all of the above reasons motivos I am giving the book a rating of 40 to 45 stars despite not always enjoying the book as much as I would have liked However if you haven t read this I would highly recommend it as I think it has a lot going for it HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This is technically a collection of short stories but I am Legend is the centerpiece masterpiece main event etc I am Legend truly is a great story deserving of all the accolades and an inspired source of all the horror genre influence over the past 60 years including Stephen King It s about vampires the same way Castaway the Tom Hanks film is about the South Pacific 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 absolutionThe other stories are not even close many just sketches some are comical By far the best is Prey and I remember watching the short film in the early 70s and being scared as a child Mad House comes closest to evoking the same degree of anger and isolation as I am Legend very dark and with an almost Kafka esue absurdist twist at the endMost notable about my reading the title story though was a growing understanding about the vampire zombie fascination over the past few years Matheson summed up that whole sub genre here it s all about de humanization and isolation a literary Edvard Munch screaming about who we are amidst an outside that we cannot understand nor be a part

    “Come out Neville” Of the vampire books there are few I choose to read these days That section of horror was inundated years ago much like the zombies shuffled their way into an entire genre and the the post apocalyptic craze too The weird thing in saying this is realizing how I Am Legend is a combination of all three only a token bit of zombie actually But it's far better than most of those others likely because
