Fun read. ( )

This was ok. Pretty good in many parts. But just not enough to keep me going. I've got good a good supply of audiobooks in my library with as many as Scott goes through on the road, so I can afford to be picky. ( )

I really liked this book! This was probably the most unique and genius piece of historical fiction that I had ever read. In addition to being thoroughly entertained by battles with vampires, the author did a supreme job of weaving the fictional journals in with the historical. More over, I actually learned things about our 16th president that I had not previously learned! If you like vampires and you like Abraham Lincoln, you'll love Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. ( )

Despite the bluntness with which it works vampires into the American fabric, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a fun read... As a secret history... it rests on a good idea, and stays true to its own internal logic and to the world it builds for itself.
added by Shortride | editPopMatters, Andrew Gilstrap (Mar 25, 2010)
 
Grahame-Smith's sophomore effort outlasts the kitsch value of its title, and freed from the constraints of updating (or defacing, depending on one's viewpoint) a revered literary gem, the writer delivers a well-constructed, surprisingly satisfying narrative that straight-faces its absurd premise: that Honest Abe, the 16th president of the United States, led a secret life slaying the fanged undead.
 
I'll have to admit, I sort of had a love-hate relationship with this book.
