I Am Legend

By Richard Matheson

Rating: 4 stars

This is an SF novel about vampires. Robert Neville is the last man alive, yet not alone: everybody else has been turned into vampires. By day he hunts them and by night he hides in his fortified house.

This is an excellent book, dealing with the psychology of loneliness and the fight to survive. The scientific explanation of vampirism may not entirely convince, but that’s not really the point of the story. The conclusion is both inevitable and startling. Highly recommended.
