What if Abe Lincoln freed the slaves to end the scourge of vampirism in the new world? The title of the book, and the audacity of the premise had gotten this book put onto my list sometime last year, but I've only recently gotten around to reading it. The movie version will be coming soon, and despite it not being a great book I think the transition to a movie will do a lot of good for the story.
I'm finding one major issue with having my Kindle is that I can have way too many books stacked up to read. I think at the moment I have 8 books I'm in progress on, and another 20 or 30 I'd like to read this year. Over the last few months I've probably loaded a few hundred books into it, and I have absolutely no idea when I'll have a chance to read thru all of them. Ok I have an idea, but that's for a future post.
Historical fiction is not a genre I read very often, and most books in that genre are pretty forgettable. Although reading about Abe Lincoln as a vampire hunter was a fun read, I doubt in 6 months time I'll have any desire to read it again and will most likely have forgotten most of the specifics. I would recommend this book though if you need something lite to while away the time.
The story follows a generally historical timeline of Abraham Lincolns life, with the addition of Vampires (of course). I'm honestly not too sure how historically accurate the book is, but with Honest Abe hunting vampires I think you should go elsewhere for your history anyway.
Here's the trailer for the movie:
