Here’s what I read the past week:
June 3: “I Am Legend” by Richard Matheson, a horror novella at 170 pages. Blurb from book: Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth…but he is not alone. Every other man, woman, and child on earth has become a vampire, and they are all hungry for Neville’s blood. By day, he is the hunter, stalking the sleeping undead through the abandoned ruins of civilization. By night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for dawn. How long can one man survive in a world of vampires? I had seen the Will Smith movie, but until recently, didn’t know it was based on a book (or rather, novella). And I’d heard it was different, so I had to check it out. Yep, the book is way different and way better. But then, the books usually are.
Funny how I came to read this story. A discussion on Charleton Heston (one of my favorite actors) led to “Omega Man” (which I had never seen), which led to the book. Boy! Sometimes I feel like I’ve been living under a rock. Well I can now say I’ve seen “Omega Man,” too and realized I wasn’t missing much. J I still like Charleton Heston, though.
With the Penguins win on Monday night (whoo hoo!!), putting them up 3-1, I sooooo want to celebrate the Pens championship on Thursday night (**fingers crossed**). Hopefully I don’t disturb my neighbors too much. I can get a little vocal during the games. J
So… Are you enjoying nice weather in your area? If not for my walking, I’d probably never go outside! Ain’t that horrible?
