If literature was food then this would be the starving persons feast, well for me it would be anyway because I devoured this and like all great books you enjoy it was over far too quickly (understandably, seeing as it's a novella) and yet if it went on any longer I don't think it would have been anywhere near the same.

A fun, and quick read about a survivor of the zombie apocalypse. A novella that is a must read for any zombie fan! He sits away in his house being taunted by (now zombie) neighbor while he slowly drinks himself to death. I think I had higher expectations considering I really liked the movie, but that's not even fair to say. The book and the movie were nothing alike!

"This book is really the origin of modern zombie movies/literature. It is interesting to note that it isn't even about zombies, it's about vampires. I like the utter isolation that Robert Neville faces. You really feel like you understand his despair at being truly alone, desperately clinging to life, despite not having any real reason to believe that it's ever going to get better. The belief that you are truly the last human being alive in the world."

I am all for making books into movies, and even very loosely basing a movie on a book. Though, in this case they should feel ashamed for having pasted the movie cover on the book claiming that this book was now a major motion picture... Aside from the main characters having the same name there is absolutely nothing alike.” read more

"Robert Neville: Like the movie? Read the short story...totally different, one learns how one man deals with being the last living human on earth, and the transition from human to vampire legend."

Vampyre Literature (16 books items)

"Not your typical vampire literature, what I more or less like to call Vampire Literature by Association. The reason being, although they have a vampire nature they aren't made in the typical vampire fashion. There isn't any blood drinking ritual and the main character isn't a vampire. "

There's an introduction by Stephen King (at least in my copy) with a line that I found to be very true "he will leave you wanting more" and if you watch the movie, do yourself a favour and read the book because in my opinion a movie could not do justice to this book especially with that ending.” read more
