3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but forgettable read July 31 2010
By Patrick St-Denis TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I must admit that I didn't really know what to expect when my contact at Hachette sent this one my way. Like many, I had heard about this author via the noise made by the popularity of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. My gut kept telling me that this novel wasn't quite up my alley, but my curiosity was piqued in a way that prevented me from giving it a pass.

Since I needed light and entertaining stuff to keep me from opening my veins out of boredom during my 26 hours of transit to get to and from Southeast Asia, and during my long bus rides across Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, I decided to bring Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter with me.

Here's the blurb:

Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother's bedside. She's been stricken with something the old-timers call "Milk Sickness.""My baby boy..." she whispers before dying. Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire. When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, ""henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose.".." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Real History Sept. 23 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book for my Toastmaster Book club. I don't think I would have read this book otherwise.

The author took the real life story of Abraham Lincoln and suggested that he was a vampire hunter. He took real events in Abe's life and in American history and used vamopires to explain them.

I always look at the character development in the novel. The author had the challenge that his main character was already well known. Or, at least we thought so. I think that the author did a good job of using his mood and quirks to bring vampires and thier actions into his life story.

Apparently there are some inside jokes in the book for those that are well versed in vampire lore. I am not, so these jokes were over my head. It was fun to read a book about vampires that did not involve a forbidden romance. Yes, there are many vampire books with that theme.

If anything, go out and read the offical history of Abraham Lincoln. He was a remarkable man and worthy of you to learn more about.

I did enjoy the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHEER GENIUS... Aug. 4 2013
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
When I first saw "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" as a movie trailer, I was stunned by the title and immediately started laughing, it seemed so ridiculous. A few days later, I came across the book at a store, and again, the title made me laugh. I did, however, pick it up, noted that it was a bestseller, and perused it. Notwithstanding the outlandish premise, I was sufficiently intrigued so that I ended up buying it.

After reading it nonstop, as I was totally unable to put it down, all I can say is that it is pure genius. Presented in a pretty straightforward, serious tone, it is at times funny, intriguing, and surprisingly well-written. It rivets the reader with its melding of history and fiction, as well as with the accompanying photographs that lend an air of authenticity to the author's story.

As crazy as the premise may seem, it totally works in this author's very capable hands. It is simply brilliant and a very entertaining book to read. I highly enjoy historical fiction, as well as vampire stories, and this book cleverly covered both genres. I simply loved the book!
