review I Am Legend ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook F civilisation By night he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawnHow long can one man survive like this. I was going to rate the book a lukewarm 3 stars but then I looked once at the date of publication 1954 and reconsidered A bit of historical perspective of literary context elevates this novel to the well deserved genre classic status At the time Matheson published his science fiction take on the gothic vampire myth the market was a lot different from today s oversaturated landscape that has largely trivialized the subject and gave it a curious teenage romance slant Even bringing in the scientific method of study for the phenomenon and its associated paraphernalia the bloodsucking the garlic the cross the wooden stake the fear of light the sleeping underground the bullet invulnerability was probably a novel approach to a dusty theme Something black and of the night had come crawling out of the Middle Ages Something with no framework or credulity something that had been consigned fact and figure to the pages of imaginative literature Vampires were passe Summers idylls or Stoker s melodramatics or a brief inclusion in the Britannica or grist for the pulp writer s mill or raw material for the B film factories A tenuous legend passed from century to century I didn t much care for the prose it is concise and clear in its presentation of the main themes but I found it lackluster and unconvincing when it tried to delve deeper into emotional intensity for the main character I could also complain about the lack of action but I believe this is a novel about ideas than a high octane action thriller To finish with the grumbling I would have liked a rigorous attempt with the scientific speculations Most of the ideas are sound but the way they are fitted together seems fishy with some of the argumentation incomplete Let me give you a few examples vampires are destroyed by sunlight yet when they are hidden in deep cellars and dark places during the day they are still handicapped the transmission is supposed to be airborne yet two other theories are given eual importance direct contact with open wounds and insect bites mosuitoes bullet wounds are instantly healed didn t they have exploding ammo in 1954 yet knife cuts are still bleeding the disease affects the brain but in a curious way speech is unimpeded yet the use of tools is lost and social interaction is lostThe last one is the one I struggled with the most Other reviewers noticed also that the monsters are closer in behaviour to zombies than to classic vampires Cesar Romero cites the book as a primary source Stephen King alsao makes reference to itOn the positive side two aspects of the novel stand out and will probably come to define it for me in later years as the actual details of the plot will fade from memory the psychological pressure of being the last man on earth Richard Neville is utterly alone he has nobody to turn to has lost his wife and kid in horrible circumstances yet he must find the resources inside himself to go on living from day to day His heavy drinking his episodes of paranoid depression and self destructive rage are painfull to watch as are his efforts to organize his daily routines with checklists and his obsession in hunting down his afflicted neighbours when they are incapacitated during the day The episode of the feral dog is probably the best written part of the whole novel the implications resulting from the demotion of humanity from the top of the food chain something that I have remarked upon in another classic I read earlier this year The Day of the Triffids Normalcy was a majority concept the standard of many and not the standard of just one man exclaims Neville towards the end of the novel when he realizes that the monster from the fairytales is in fact himself The future of the human race might well be carried on by people with wings or by people who use photosynthesis instead of eating solid food or by vampires who drink blood and go out only at nightedit for spelling

review I Am Legend ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ecome a vampire and they are hungry for Neville's bloodBy day he is the hunter stalking the undead through the ruins o. I Am Legend Richard MathesonIt was influential in the development of the zombie vampire genre and in popularizing the concept of a worldwide apocalypse due to disease Robert Neville appears to be the sole survivor of a pandemic that has killed most of the human population and turned the remainder into vampires that largely conform to their stereotypes in fiction and folklore they are blood sucking pale skinned and nocturnal though otherwise indistinguishable from normal humans Implicitly set in Los Angeles the novel details Neville s life in the months and eventually years after the outbreak as he attempts to comprehend research and possibly cure the disease Swarms of vampires surround his house nightly and try to find ways to get inside which includes the females exposing themselves and his vampire neighbor relentlessly shouting for him to come out Neville survives by barricading himself inside his house every night he is further protected by the traditional vampire repellents of garlic mirrors and crucifixes Weekly dust storms ravage the city and during the day when the vampires are inactive Neville drives around to search them out in order to kill them with wooden stakes since they seem impervious to his guns bullets and to scavenge for supplies Neville s past is occasionally revealed through flashbacks the disease claimed his daughter whose body the government forced him to burn as well as his wife whose body he secretly buried but then had to kill after she rose from the dead as a vampire 2017 1395 263 9786009331666 20 1954 1976 2012 13041399
