The stories in that book were wonderful, and quite a few have stayed with me to this day. So, coming into this book, I had pretty high expectations, and I feel like I was let down, a little.
These stories are definitely more science fiction than horror, which was another little let down. That being said, the stories here were mostly good, with some that rose a bit higher, and some that faltered.
The only one that just did not work for me at all was "When The Waker Sleeps". I think this one was probably an experiment for Matheson Second person narrative is extremely difficult to do right, even by someone as talented as Matheson is. Tried three times, then I moved on.
Oddly enough, both of these are halves of two story related sets. This is a kind of "Death Panel" story as elderly people are given a set of memory, aptitude, physical and mental tests in order to determine whether they are high-functioning enough to be allowed to live another 5 years until the next test. It deals with the sociological issues that might arise from that kind of situation, or the lack thereof.
It could be quite prophetic, you never know. I found it to be very sad, and actually wished that the story was longer so that I could understand better. I felt like this one was rushed, not fully fleshed out. But, maybe that was on purpose. Our narrator only told what they knew, little though it may be. Could be. I would definitely recommend it to science fiction fans, as Matheson is a must-read, in my opinion, but this is not his best, again in my opinion.
