this is an awesome book but why is Sam not in the book with Neville and why doesn't it explain how his daughter and wife die.

This book takes readers into another world that has become infected by a plague that has consumed an entire city except for one man and that is Robert Neville being the main character of this book. Neville desperate to find other survivors searches during the day because at night the infected come out. The theme of this book could be survival.

This book is okay. Its a well written piece of fiction,and I recommend it if you're studying science fiction. Its not a light read, though. The only reason I put it at four stars, not five, is because of the many creepy, pointless, not well written short stories at the end. For some reason they're tacked on once 'I Am Legend' is finished,but no publishers tell you about them. I would get the book solely for I am legend, though a wiser choice would be to get it from the library. Its not really worth buying.

I'm glad I read it. Richard Matheson has an intriguing mind that he shares with us on the page. This is not the movie and I have to admit I liked the movie better. In fact, the movie may have hurt the book for me in some way because I kept looking for the things I was familiar with. But the book actually makes sense. The concept of becoming legend is very cool. I love the idea. And were it not that I was looking for Will Smith trying to save the world from the damned, I would have given the real Robert Neville a better chance.
Buy the book. Read it. But don't expect a man and his dog to fight off the germ warfare zombies and give a woman and a little boy their escape to find sanctuary. That's not what this is.
The book also contained ten short stories in addition to the novella, I am Legend. They too were quite good. I might even place Matheson with Gaiman.
