Richard Matheson æ I Am Legend and Other Stories doc

I Am Legend and Other StoriesI Am Legend est un roman de science fiction de l'auteur amricain Richard Matheson paru en et adapt en et au cinma I Am Legend Reboot film AlloCin Dcouvrez toutes les informations sur le film I Am Legend Reboot les vidos et les dernires actualits I Am Legend Official Movie Trailer YouTube I Am Legend Trailer for UK market This movie was released in I Am Legend Rotten Tomatoes I Am Legend Rotten Tomatoes Adapted from acclaimed author Richard Matheson's influential novelette of the same name Constantine director Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend follows 40 to 45 stars Okay this rating is going to a take a little explaining Unfortunately I don't have a slide show or any multi colored pie charts to assist me as a visual aid on this one so I will try to be as clear as I can Warning I will probably be reuired to use uite a few ie and eg to provide clarification to my statements as well as some targeted use of bold and italics given that I am reviewing here without the safety net of my usual visual aids I have also decided to throw in the occassional word in Spanishwhy you ask?why not I answer? Okay from a pure “enjoyment” standpoint eg Steve while reading looks down and notices his toes tapping involuntarily to the smooth jazzy flow of the narrative I would probably go 3 to 35 stars ie no toe tapping but I did have the occassional feeling of warmth in my tummythough that could have just been the tacos Richard Matheson is a terrific writer and as with most of his work this story is very well written ie I have zero complaints about the prose or the technical choices Matheson took in constructing the narrative My issue was really with the main character Robert Neville who was not the most compelling or interesting character that I have ever come across Since the entire book is spent lollygagging around with Robby as he provides running jogging walking commentary it subtracted a bit for me at least from the enjoyment of the reading experience So why the 40 to 45 stars? Several reasons that are mucho importante Oh yeahthat's right I just turned this into my first bilingual review First Primero is the plot This book written in 1954 was the genesis for EVERY zombie book that follows and provides the basic framework for most of the post apocalyptic undead fiction being produced today I would also point out that it is one of the best of these kinds of stories despite being the first Here is the basic plot or argumento Robert Neville is the sole survivor of a pandemic that struck the world and caused the infected to exhibit all the signs of vampirism vampirismo He spends his day gathering supplies fortifying his house and killing the sleeping “vampires” and spends his nights barricaded in his house and fending off attacks from the walking dead Sound familiar? Well this is the book that started it all and I felt that deserved some serious recognition for both for its originality and Matheson's being a trailblazer pionero of the zombie sub genre Second Segundo is the back story and explanation of both the plague and the “vampires” which I thought was nothing short of EXCELENTE ie magnifico While certainly not good science in the sense that it can be analyzed objectively the explanations given are compelling and very interesting reading I actually wish time had been spent on this aspect of the book because I thought it was just fantástico ieif you really need a translation of this that one you need to put the crash helmet back on Third Tercero is the end of the book which in my opinion is worthy of 5 stars all by itself I would say that goes double for the very last line of the book which I think makes it a 10 star ending but I will have to go back and check my math Thus Matheson being the superb writer that he is not only invents a sub genre but then over 50 years after the fact still can claim to have one of the best written most original examples of it That is pretty especialThus for all of the reasons motivosabove I am giving the book a rating of 40 to 45 stars despite not always “enjoying” the book as much as I would have liked However if you haven’t read this I would highly recommend it as I think it has a lot going for it
