I Am Legend
I had never read I Am Legend, by Richard Matheson, though I have always heard how I should. I read it today in a single sitting. It's the tragic and compelling story of the last man surviving a horrible plague that turns people into vampires. As I read I kept wondering if the Vincent Price movie The Last Man on Earth was based on this novel, and now that I'm looking up information on the book I see that it was. I was unable to sit through that movie -too traumatic for me. I got the kids to tell me how it ended.
