Teaser Tuesday: I Am Legend by Richard Matheson


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers: 
He stood there for a moment looking around the silent room, shaking his head slowly. All these books, he thought, the residue of a planet's intellect, the scrapings of futile minds, the leftovers, the potpourri of artifacts that had no power to save men from perishing.
Page 68 of I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

Oh, nice teaser!

One of these days I will either read this book or at the very least see the movie!

Here is my teaser for this week.

This sounds like a great book! Have you seen the movie? I loved the movie and am wondering how it compares.

Hi Jennifer,

No, I haven't seen any of the movies based on this book. I try to read the books before I see their reinterpretations. I can enjoy a movie after reading a book, but I can't enjoy a book after watching the movie :-/ Everyone I've spoken to who is a fan of the book trash the Will Smith movie so it would be interesting to see what a fan of the movie would say about the book!

Marg, if you would like to borrow my copy I can bring it to the meet up. It will be years before I find time to read it again LOL
