Good review. Just for those with an interest, the Vincent Price adaptation mentioned (The Last Man on Earth) has fallen out of copyright and as a result may be legally viewed via The Internet Archive.

Excellent review. I agree with all the points made here.
Yes, there are plot holes, but this (particularly for its time) is a really unique look at vampires.
I did see the movie, and it doesn't do the book justice at all. Yes, it's interesting in its own right, but to call it "I Am Legend" is a misnomer.
And, let me also submit that this book has one of the coolest last sentences of any book I've ever read.

I liked this one I thought it was really good. I was sort of disappointed when the book ended half way through the pages.
Oh well I give this one a B
