No. 47 - I Am Legend

by Richard Matheson

Started: December 8
Finished: December 9

Notes: I stumbled across this book this morning while going through boxes from the latest move. I've been wanting to read this one again for a long time, especially with the movie coming out, and figured now was a good time even though I'm not finished with my other book yet.

Mini review: A fine piece of fiction. The climax is a bit jarring because the pace of the book changes so swiftly, but the emotional, even social, implications are stunning, in my opinion. Especially for a novel written more than half a century ago.
