Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter: Surprisingly Fantastic
io9.com: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter takes gigantic liberties. But if you can allow your imagination to accept the incontrovertible fact that our 16th President also killed vampires on the side, you’ll be entertained right up until John Wilkes Booth’s fanged appearance.
After Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies lit/genre mash-up book came and went like the novelty we all believed it was, I was less than hopeful that the author’s next book would be entertaining. I was wrong. Grahame-Smith’s second book is a breezy read, filled with fun references, but it goes so over the top, you don’t have time to be offended by the history bending. The story moves forward at a fast pace, with engaging dialog and fascinating tidbits about the past president’s life, both true and false.
The book opens with the author describing his monotonous existence in Rhinebeck, NY — until one day, a man who always seemed to be a stranger bestows upon him the missing journals of Abraham Lincoln, revealing him to be none other than the world’s most successful vampire hunter. Why does our first-person author believe this mystery man from upstate New York? Because he’s a vampire. And just like that, you’re re-learning everything you ever knew about oneo f the greatest Presidents of the United States.
