Just read I am Legend. It only took about 6 hours to read and it was nothing like the movie. As usual, it was better than the movie's adaptation. Overall, it was a good book, but not great.

Loved I am Legend. It has however, been ripped off loads in movies so you most likely found it somewhat predictable?

The Film was Garbage, I'd have cast Sam Rockwell as Neville, Walton Goggins as Ben Cortman and I would have Guillermo del Toro directing.

I've got to stop reading these war novels. I feel like I want to scream and cry after reading them.

I would just like to say, for those who said they were adding 'Matterhorn' to their list, that I feel that this was even more powerful. 'Matterhorn', for all of its qualities, does not possess the character development that 'Fields of Fire' does; in short, I didn't feel attachments to more than a few characters in 'Matterhorn', whereas in Webb's novel every character has a nickname, a story. Time is spent on who these guys are and why they do what they do. Their backgrounds. The supporting characters (Phony, Bagger, Cat Man, Baby Cakes, Cannonball), they all have their stories, and when shit hits the fan, it cuts you to the core to see what happens to these guys.

I'm 200 pages into Matterhorn right now and I really like it so far. I just ordered Fields of Fire and will read it next.

Blood Meridian is what I'm currently reading and its a masterpiece. I'm also in the middle of Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson and its nothing special.
