Staff Reviews


How long can the only living man on the planet survive when the whole world is a vampire hunting for his blood? This is a classic in science fiction and the inspiration for many more books you love! Totally different and so much better than the movie! — Jess Elder

Description


Robert Neville may well be the last living man on Earth . . . but he is not alone.

An incurable plague has mutated every other man, woman, and child into bloodthirsty, nocturnal creatures who are determined to destroy him.

By day, he is a hunter, stalking the infected monstrosities through the abandoned ruins of civilization. By night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for dawn....
