I was nervous to start this book.. even the cover is terrifying, but I was surprised to find that it was hardly scary at all. I waited adn waited for the action that had Steven King inspired but nothing really happened. I found the short stories more chilling than the novel itself. Robert Neville survives 3 years of pain and obscene loneliness only to be "executed" by the new race of infected smi-vampires. I was so frustrated! Interesting concept for a novel but not something I couldn't put down.
