Audio Book Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

Saturday, May 29, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

My Review
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith is a curious mix between historical fiction and vampire novel. It's well written and entertaining. There are some graphic descriptions of axes decapitating vampires and such, so if you are listening to the audio book as I did, mind the company of young children.

That said, I love historical fiction, and Grahame-Smith includes enough real facts and convincing conjecture to make it worth your while. If you are a fan of both history and vampire slayers, you will love this book. I am more of a history buff than Buffy aficionado, so I found the former more engrossing.
