  1. Richard Neville is the last of his kind, a human, in a world now populated by the undead, the dying, and vampires. A plague has infected the human population and most become vampires. By day, Richard hunts down the sleeping vampires and kills them, whilst stocking up on groceries and supplies. By night, he holes up in his house, playing extremely loud music to drown out the calls of the vampires outside his house. His vampire-hunting is all a bit chaotic until he starts to investigate how garlic, running water, daylight and crosses are effective against the vampire. I enjoyed this book very much - there's not much by way of style but the plot is pacy enough and interesting enough twist on the traditional vampire story to keep you reading. Sometimes, the science of Richard's investigations made my eyes glaze over, but his findings and subsequent consequences of such make up for that. The ending is just perfect, and utterly redeems any small flaws you may have with the rest of the book. By now, I must have read nearly a gazillion vampire books and if you think you have had enough of them, you really must read this one before declaring so.
