really liked it

I'd seen the movie version (Will Smith, 2007ish?) so I had general expectations about the plot, events, characters, etc... I tossed those aside early on, as I quickly noticed that Matheson's story was quite different from the adapted screenplay. The plot and the character development was just BETTER. More evocative and raw. There are just some things - inner torment - captured in writing that just don't translate to the big screen. A recommended read.
