Detaljer om værket

Jeg er den sidste af Richard Matheson (Author) (1954)

  1. 172
    Vejen : roman af Cormac McCarthy (Rynooo, PDcastello)
    PDcastello: Same type of small and silent epic
  2. 103
    Klodernes kamp af H. G. Wells (Patangel)
  3. 30
    The Martian af Andy Weir (johnny_merc)
    johnny_merc: Totally different genre; but another interesting take on the man alone genre. Also interesting that the main protagonist resorts to science to resolve issues.
  4. 53
    Blod af Guillermo del Toro (Joles)
    Joles: The authors treat vampires in a similar light. The Strain could very well be what leads up to Matheson's I Am Legend.
  5. 21
    The Dog Stars af Peter Heller (47degreesnorth)
    47degreesnorth: Excellent post-apocalyptic story set in Colorado. Well developed story and characters.
  6. 00
    la nuit a devore le monde af Pit Agarmen (yokai)
  7. 22
    H5N1 Code Name: GREED af Jacqueline Druga (cmwilson101, cmwilson101)
    cmwilson101: Both of these books are about sole survivors who make it their aim in life to kill the monsters that have taken over the world; in I am Legend, the monsters are vampires, and in H5N1, the monsters are somewhat-rational zombies.

Un énorme classique fantastico-dystopique d’horreur apocalyptique qui m’était passé à côté et dont je n’avais vu que la fort bonne adaptation cinématographique.

Pour autant, si le film m’avait beaucoup plu, il s’est révélé absolument infidèle tout en rendant plutôt bien le sens de l’œuvre première… Et ce, même s’il n’en est qu’une mièvre disneyfication.

Oublions donc Will Smith pour plonger dans une bien bonne histoire de vampires et de contamination mondiale plutôt trash et anxiogène ( )

A vampire apocalyptic future world where a virus has ravaged mankind. Robert Neville is the last human man remaining and the vampires are after him. Every day he goes out to hunt and scavenge amidst the ruins of his city and at night he barricades himself inside and hopes he'll live.

I couldn't get into the writing on this one, though this is right up my alley. I am surprised by that! There is also a movie by the same name starring Will Smith that took liberties with the story for Hollywood. I watched that so maybe I ruined my experience of the book.

I'm glad if you enjoyed this book; please continue to support the author in any way you can!

Decent if uneven b- and beach-read. ( )

I'd been meaning to read I Am Legend for a while before finally getting around to it. In the meantime I'd seen Francis Lawrence's film adaptation. I knew changes had been made to the story for the film, but I naively thought they were going to be simple plot changes: a character dies who had survived or vice versa, someone is introduced sooner, maybe even something bigger like Will Smith finding a cure where the novel's Neville had failed or again vice versa. I was wholly unprepared for the humdinger of a change: the very nature and meaning of the story to be flipped, turned upside down, and I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there, and I'll tell you how I became the Prince of– no, wait, that's a different Will Smith thing. Let me start again.

The essence of the story is that a curious affliction has struck humanity; perhaps just the west coast of the US, maybe the whole of the US, or maybe even the whole world. This affliction turns people into vampires, complete with an aversion to ultraviolet light and a weakness to having dirty great stakes thrust through their thorax. Robert Neville lives alone in Los Angeles researching the disease to which he is immune, hoping to find a cure, and killing the afflicted in his spare time.

His humdrum existence (told, to be honest, via rather humdrum prose) is shaken when he meets Ruth, a second survivor. Suddenly just being with another human being, the one thing we all assume we would miss if it were taken away, is the alien concept. Ruth's appearance is the shove that the rather lumbering story needs to lurch towards its conclusion which, to quote Nataliya's rather excellent review, is where lies the book's “soul-crushing impact”.

I Am Legend is undeniably flawed. And not even a flawed masterpiece, but just downright flawed. The characters are few in number and yet still come across as wooden. Neville, our only companion for half the book, isn't particularly good company. The first half is too slow, the second half could be fleshed out. But a book isn't just a bunch of clever words strung together in the right order. A book is a chalice for winged ideas. And the idea here soars. ( )

Matheson maakt op een briljant-ingenieuze wijze gebruik van de Vampiermythe voor Essef doeleinden
tilføjet af karnoefel | RedigerNBD / Biblion
 
Glavni junak romana, Robert Nevil, poslednji je čovek u svetu zaraženom vampirizmom. Zabarikadiran u svom domu, on svake noći vodi bitku da preživi do svitanja, pri čemu mu neprijatelji nisu samo krvožedni stvorovi napolju, nego i sopstveni nagoni, ludilo koje vreba i uspomene na lepšu prošlost. Sudbinu Roberta Nevila na kraju zapečatiće jedna žena čija će ga izdaja suočiti sa istinom da se shvatanje normalnosti preokrenulo i da je sada sam na njenoj drugoj strani. Na onoj strani na kojoj se stupa u legendu.

Prvenstvena tema Metisonovog dela je „opasna različitost”. Njegovi vampiri su sivi i istovetni, simbol vladavine populizma, dok je Nevil večiti pojedinac u borbi protiv neprijateljskih sila prirode i društva.
