Mixture of fantasy and mystery along with tons of suspense, also little bit of taste history.

Very well put together book. The writer did exaustive research on Lincoln and has made a very good alternate history book. I also enjoy that the vampires in this book are able to walk in sunlight, abeit not like Dracula, instead needing sunglasses. The only gripe is this: Did they even HAVE sunglasses in the 1800s?

The literary equivalent of fairy floss; enjoyable if somewhat unsatisfying.

Ehh…it was okay. I was pretty accurate in guessing which of the people Abe encountered were vampires, and which of his tragic experiences were caused by them. Oddly enough, I tried this book in 2010 and gave up because I couldn’t make heads or tails of it. This time, I had no trouble. It doesn’t make me want to go check out a “real” biography on Lincoln, but at least I’ll know the basic storyline if a patron has a question.

I picked this book because a friend told me to read it, but I was leery as I had read "Little Vampire Women" which was an awful book. This book surprised me as it was told in biography form from a secret journal that Lincoln wrote after he learned about vampires and declared that he would kill them all. There are facts well woven with the fiction and I liked the format and the pictures. It was no surprise that John Wilkes Booth was a vampire, but the ending was a surprise.

I enjoyed reading this book. I will have to borrow the DVD from the library to see if the movie is as good as the book.

Not the best. I was hoping for more of a thriller. The author did a nice job of telling the story, but it got a little boring towards the end.

The boom records a detailed history of Abraham Lincoln's journal that depicts his battle against the vampires of America. Determined to rid them after one did him wrong as a child, Lincoln describes every encounter, nead-death experience, and war wages with the creatures that lurked in the night.

In his most recent book Grahame-Smith takes on one of our most iconic presidents, Abraham Lincoln. We all know that Lincoln grew up splitting logs, was a young senator from Illinois and was known as “honest Abe.” But did you know that he was also a vampire hunter. Lincoln’s hunt for the undead started when his mother died at the hands of a vampire. He trained with the same axe that he used to chop wood, and became one of the most feared vampire hunters in the United States. When he was elected president, Lincoln used his power to emancipate the slaves that were the food source of vampires living in the south.
