Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter - Seth Grahame-Smith I wasn't going to read this book because the title was just stupid and the premise seemed goofy. Yes, I judged a book by its cover.

But, after reading all of the reviews and recommendations on Horror Aficionados, I decided to give it a run. At least, I would have someone else to blame if it turned out to be crap. Lord knows I have read enough crap on my own with no blame to place.

But, I was wr-wr-wr-wrong! The book was actually good. In fact, very good!

The title pretty much explains it all. Take all of the history that you know about Abe Lincoln and everything you ever learned about the War of Northern Aggression and mix in a hidden vampire infestation and you'll have the general idea.

After finishing the book, I started thinking of other great Americans that could have been vampire hunters...Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight D Eisenhower, LBJ, Gerald Ford...okay, maybe not Gerald Ford. But, I see some room for sequels....

5 STARS and favorited
