really liked it
bookshelves: post-apocalyptic, novellas-and-shorts, thought-provoking
Read in February, 2012

After reading this novella, I'm glad I watched the movie first. The two are so different that they almost seem unrelated. The name Robert Neville, post apocalyptic scenery, and daylight fearing creatures that want to kill him- that's about where the similarity ends. I mildly enjoyed the movie and I'm fairly sure I could not have done so if I had read the novella first, especially now that I see how irrelevant the title and final line is to the movie. I thought this was a pretty great little piece of work.
