Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln Vampire HunterAbraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Had this book's main character been just about anyone except Lincoln, I probably would have given it 4 or 5 stars. While the way his losses and reactions to those losses as written were very moving, the story cheapens his role in freeing the slaves by making it all about vampires and not at all about the slaves themselves.

As I said, if it had been about anyone else, I probably would have adored this book.

Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
