I'm not sure how I feel about I am Legend. I originally was reading that book and then went to the audiobook when I was driving. I thought most of it was kind of dry. Got a little interesting when that woman came around. And I also have no idea if those little stories in the back of the book are part of the story or not. If it is I haven't finished it then.
Do you think part of the dryness may be due to the audiobook narrator? As you know, I do audiobook narration on the side (5 to my credit with a 6th in the works) and when I hear some of the samples on Audible they can be wooden and dull, even in fiction. I don't claim to be an ace narrator and I don't have that deep, smooth, rich voice every guy wants, but I try to be dynamic and engaging in my reads.
