I Am Legend - Richard Matheson Wow, what a book. I loved it! I bought this book because I have seen the Will Smith version of the movie and I had no idea that it was a book. I was a little worried when reading it that it would be exactly the same as the film but it is totally different. I can see similarities between the two and I can see why certain things were in the movie from the book. I was amazed by the ending. I totally did not see that coming. I really enjoyed it. It was a nice short read. It is one of those books that has you question what you would do and feel in that situation.
