I Am Legend

I Am Legend and Other Stories - Yuri Rasovsky, Richard Matheson, Robertson Dean

If this book were broken into two books I would’ve given I Am Legend 4 stars and Other Stories 2. So average 3.

I Am Legend was an interesting story, though extremely mopey at times, particularly in the first half. I liked the slow reveal of the world and Neville’s back-story; the element of mystery was very captivating to me.

The other stories left much to be desired for me, though full disclosure, I listened to the audiobook version of this and the second narrator’s nasally voice was very annoying to me, thus probably detracted from my enjoyment.

I would say read I Am Legend and skip the rest.
