    Great read.

    I really enjoyed this book and hated it to end. If you think you wouldn't like it because it involves vampires - wrong. This book is nothing like the latest vampire craze. Truly a great story.

    An interesting take on the life of an American icon

    This story was very interesting. I liked the way Grahame-Smith took real events and tweaked them, leaving them as historical fact just adding a different side to them. I think that was the most appealing part of this story. I liked thinking of these historical facts in a new way. I could almost imagine that was the truth.

    The writing was a bit humorous at times, and given what was going on in the story the slight humor was able to lighten the mood of what would have been a very dark novel. I for one liked the humor.

    The characters, both fictional and real, were well developed. While there are characters that we are already familiar with Grahame-Smith was able to add a new dimension to them that lent itself very well to the story. The fictional characters were also a great addition to the story, again tweaking history to make it so interesting.

    While this one was a bit gory it wasn't so gory that it made it difficult to read (or listen to). There were a few scenes that did make me cringe.

    My only complaint was the narrator was a bit dry in my opinion. I've never listened to an audio book before, so I don't know if all audio books are like this, or if I just happened upon a fluke. When I'm reading a book I have a whole cast of characters in my head and they each have a different voice and attitude, and that was kind of what I was expecting, to an extent. So this criticism may just well be due to my lack of comfort with an audio book.

    Other than that I really liked this one. After I read Pride and Prejudice I plan on picking up Grahame-Smith's other novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

    I listened to the audio production of this book and it was fabulous.

    Grahame-Smith did his homework for this book. The historical context is very accurate and the incorporation of historical figures very well done. I am constantly amazed at the creativity of writers in coming up with and then developing book ideas that on the surface would seem absurd and doomed to fail. I mean Abraham Lincoln hunting vampires!! The audio production was excellent. I can't wait to see the movie when it comes out!
