4.5 Very Enjoyable Classic TopCat1984 | 12/02/2012 | See all TopCat1984's reviews (68) I was shocked by how good this book is. You have to block out the Will Smith film completely from your mind. Although a book with vampires it's not about vampires. It's about a man' s struggle and turmoil being completely alone. The loneliness is palpable. The book is short but there is only so much to do and say. The ending is very fitting and stays with you. That's how good it is.
