Book & Movie Review: I Am Legend

Let me start with the book shown to the right. This is the book that I read. I didn’t realize that the book also contained short stories written by Richard Matheson. When I got to what I thought was the logical end of the book, I progressed to a short story, not realizing I Am Legend had ended until I read at least a page. Boy am I a dork!

What was fun about the book is that each of the authors wrote a different … Read more…

Instead, I’d like to share the experience I had while discussing the book with my book club (South Denver Book Club). In March, I had … Read more…
