Book Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

September 9, 2011 § 2 Comments

I’ve never read a vampire/zombie/werewolf book and (until now) I’ve never had the desire to, but I’m a sucker for Abraham Lincoln (he’s actually my first cousin, six times removed) and when I saw this book at the library I couldn’t resist. Grahame-Smith does a masterful job creating a world where 18th century America is brimming with vampires and the way he ties them into Lincoln’s life, explaining everything from why he was such an amazing wrestler, to how it enlightened his views on slavery is nothing short of brilliant.   And to think I never knew.
