Audiobook Review and Giveaway: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

About The Book:
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:
I'm putting my review of the book which I've read here. When I saw it offered on audio I knew I had to have it!
I'll say I enjoyed it as much or more on audio than I did reading it. It was excellent!

What a fantastic book! We followed the life of Abraham Lincoln in the most fascinating way ever! This is an "old" vampire story. By "old" I mean the vampires of bad dreams...not the Edwards and Bills of today.

Seth's book had me at times rethinking my history lessons because this one really sucks you in and makes it seem so real! It was like a history book with vampires added in so smoothly that it tricked my mind at times.

Honestly, if a really hip history teacher hands this book to your teenager (or you) I think you would LEARN something. I know I would have learned alot more about the Civil War! That's the thing about this book....Seth flawlessly ties in his fact and fiction so while you're highly entertained, you still walk away with something.

I LOVED it! I give it five stars, two thumbs up, and will keep this one on my shelf permanently!

  2. I think its believable that its true...his time in office is full of conspiracies.

  3. It seems somewhat improbable that Lincoln was a vampire hunter but I know that he was always seeking to preserve truth, honor and society. So with that he could have done it on those long winter nights when he nothing else to do but read by the fireplace light.

  5. Lincoln was a man of many talents; of course he could have been a vampire hunter!
