My Favorite Novel Of All Time 'I Am Legend'
"Outside, they howled and pummeled the door, shouting his name in a paroxysm of fury." I Am Legend, in my opinion, is one of the greatest sci fi-horror novels of all time.

Monster or Misconstrued Mate
In Milhauser’s criticism of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, he provides evidence of the literary description of the noble savage. Milhauser believed that a reader's first thoughts about the book would be that it was a supernatural horror story, filled with Shelley’s “macabre and pseudo-scientific sensationalism.” Once the audience took more time to consider the actions and plotlines, they would see how deep each character really is and what he or she represents.
Scariest Nonfiction Ghost Stories to Read Right Now
