    Hm.Honestly, this is a tough book to review.I did like the story, but one of the biggest bothers for me here was not fully understanding why the world has gone to shit why everyone is now a vampire The book just drops you right in the middle of Robert Neville s situation, which is a day to day existence of killing vampires during the day hiding in his house during the night.I m the kind of SF reader who likes a bit of depth to be given to the cause of disaster, and this story large Hm.Honestly, this is a tough book to review.I did like the story, but one of the biggest bothers for me here was not fully understanding why the world has gone to shit why everyone is now a vampire The book just drops you right in the middle of Robert Neville s situation, which is a day to day existence of killing vampires during the day hiding in his house during the night.I m the kind of SF reader who likes a bit of depth to be given to the cause of disaster, and this story largely glosses over theWhy But I m coming at it from the angle of a reader who has exhausted the zombie vampire virus genre For the time it was written, this probably struck readers in a much different way If you re basing your opinion of this book solely off your knowledge of the movie, I d ahead and throw that idea out the window because this book is nothing like the Will Smith, good guy out to save humanity, crying over his dog, self sacrificing version Hollywood has created This is much darker.In fact, I imagine a gro...

    I just re read this after watching some of the movies based on it It s truly a chilling book It s an apocalyptic novel The vampire plague has destroyed our society Much of the book focuses on our hero s loneliness When he finds an uninfected dog, his attempts to befriend it are almost pathetic truly heart wrenching It s well worth reading.There are 3 movies that I know of that are based on this book The Last Man On Earth starring Vincent Price in the mid 60 s This follows t...

    This was creepy and sad too I don t think I would have lasted long as the last person alive I would have just given up and let myself get caught The vampires of this story are quite zombie like, I thought How events turn out in the end surprised me.
