Book review: “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”
"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is a mash-up novel written by Seth Grahame-Smith. It tells the tale of a larger-than-life figure battling mythical creatures. The supposed secret journal of Abraham Lincoln details his adventures as a hunter of vampires.
As a child, Abraham’s closest friend was his mother, Nancy Lincoln. When a strange man visits Abraham’s father, Thomas Lincoln, in the middle of the night, Nancy suddenly becomes ill and passes away. It is not until a few years later that Thomas confesses to Abe that a vampire killed his mother.
Abraham believes him and resolves "to kill every vampire in America." He hones his hunting skills and kills many vampires over the course of his life. During these exploits, he learns dark secrets about vampires in America and finds there is only one way to destroy them all: war.
"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is an excellent book for people who enjoy action. This is a story about vampires, but it has many historically accurate references that make it feels like non-fiction.
I found myself immersed in the story for hours. Lincoln is an American folk hero, and the true stories about him are amazing and sometimes unbelievable. For an incredible figure like Lincoln, this story seems like it could be real.
I enjoyed the novel immensely. It is an easy book to pick up and an addictive story to read.
