Product Description

Review

"Seth Grahame-Smith is an excellent writer whose prose raises Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter a step above others of its genre...[He] does such an excellent job blending the facts of Lincoln's life into the story that it is sometimes hard to determine fact from fiction...Suspenseful, and most readers will want to read it in one sitting."― Asbury Park Press

"Evocative...Grahame-Smith [is] a lively, fluent writer with a sharp sense of tone and pace."―TIME

"Thanks to P&P&Z, a delicious mutant book craze was born. But then opportunists infested the territory...It's nice to see plucky Grahame-Smith retake his turf."―Entertainment Weekly

"Not just the Lincoln biography we've all been waiting for. It's also the funniest, most action-packed and weirdly well-researched account of the Civil War you'll probably read in a long time. Grahame-Smith could be poised to become the Howard Zinn of vampire-related alterna-history."―Vanity Fair

"Grahame-Smith does an excellent job of capturing the spirit of this style of story-telling, mixing historically accurate anecdotes with entries from Lincoln's fictional secret journal, weaving the vampire elements into the story in a manner that's quite believable."―Wired --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I was a little apprehensive about reading this book, but am very glad that I did. It is very well written while being kind of creepy and hard to believe at the same time. I can't imagine that Abraham Lincoln was ever a vampire hunter, but after reading this book - who knows? Anything is possible! This is definitely a story worth reading - but maybe not right before going to sleep!

By Luanne Ollivier #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 1 2010
Format: Audio CD
I've seen the various titles and covers and had avoided this mash up genre up til now. I think the cover of Seth Grahame-Smith's previous best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies scared me off.

But you know, I was pleasantly surprised and entertained! The premise is that Seth has stumbled upon the secret journals of Lincoln, not seen for 140 years. From these personal journals, Seth retells the true story of Lincoln's life.

I think this was the neat part. Historically the tale is factual. Lincoln's accomplishments, family and history are all there. It's the reason behind those achievements and drive that is the twist. Lincoln's mother was killed by a vampire and this is reason he has sworn to rid the country of this scourge. Armed with his trusty axe, Abe cuts a path through many vampires on his way to the presidency. (Reader and listener beware - there are some slightly graphic descriptions) Grahame-Smith is very creative in his retelling of this iconic American figure, exposing the real history behind the Civil War and the truth about John Wilkes Booth.

I listened to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter in audio format. The reader, Scott Holst, was very good. He captured the sonorous tones of Lincoln and the oddly formal tones and language of the vampire Henry equally well. I was able to easily differentiate between the various characters.

I don't think I'll become a die hard fan of the mash up, but I did find it to be an entertaining listen.

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.

By lawyeraau TOP 500 REVIEWER on Aug. 4 2013
Format: Hardcover
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!
