All of my friends will be surprised that I even started this book. Yes, I did read it. And yes, I did finish it. Again, it was for an online book club and I would have never chosen it for myself if I'd read the description - and I always do that when I choose a book.
However, I did not choose this book. It was not a subject I am inclined to read, I don't believe in zombies, vampires, time travel, anything that has to do with something science can't explain. However, I liked that the author tried to explain these vampires through biology during a time where people did not know, yet, what vampires were, how these stories were created. Nowadays we do and even though they are not bacteria like Richard Matheson said, at least he made an attempt to find an explanation.
I was not too impressed with the story, I couldn't be with a story like this. But the book is not too bad. If you like these kind of narrations, I think you will like it.
From the back cover:
"Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth...but he is not alone. Every other man, woman, and child on Earth has become a vampire, and they are all 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 dawn.
How long can one man survive in a world of vampires?
I am legend
The near departed
Dance of the dead
Dress of white silk
From shadowed places
Person to person"
