I enjoyed reading I am Legend although I am inclined to agree with the majority of the class that the creatures in this novel are vampires more so than zombies. The creatures are repelled by garlic and religious symbols, and are scared of mirrors and sunlight as well. The movie version of I am Legend makes the creatures appear to be more ghoul or zombie-like but still keeps several of the vampire-like qualities from the novel.
Zombie was very creepy and thought provoking for me. The ambiguous ending allows for several different ideas: did he zap himself or not? Are the voices at the end his imagination? Did the voices truly travel around the world? I found the story exceptionally creepy as it seems like something that could feasibly happen. AEDs are becoming more and more popular and can be seen nearly everywhere, while the stress level and pressure put on kids is constantly rising.
