Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother's bedside. She's been stricken with something the old-timers call "Milk Sickness."



  • After completing the entire audiobook, I wholeheartedly endorse this book. Personally, I would have appreciated more intricate action scenes during Abe's vampire hunts, but overall, it remains an excellent listen. The narrative seamlessly blends historical facts with fiction, creating a plausible scenario that feels grounded in reality. Although it starts off a bit sluggish, I urge you to be patient, as the payoff is worth it.
  • This book had all the right ingredients on paper. An intriguing historical figure? Check! Vampires? Check! A skillful blend of fact and fiction? Double check! However, I personally didn't find it enjoyable. Despite having all the necessary elements, it failed to come together as a coherent whole. It felt like the author was going through the motions, resulting in a lifeless string of sentences rather than a book that truly came alive. If I hadn't paid close attention to every word, it would have been difficult to tell whether honest Abe was simply taking a stroll or decapitating a vampire with an axe. The narrative came across as a monotonous sequence of detached sentences. It's clear that my opinion doesn't align with the majority; most people seem to enjoy the book. However, for me, it simply didn't strike a chord.
  • After the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, it's not surprising that fans of Seth-Grahame-Smith were eagerly anticipating Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Grahame-Smith once again takes his readers on a wild and clever adventure with the intriguing idea that Abraham Lincoln was secretly a vampire hunter, chronicling his exploits in a hidden journal. This premise challenges the history we thought we knew and presents some eerily convincing arguments, though perhaps with a few artistic liberties. While there is plenty of action involving axes and stakes, true horror fans, especially those who love vampires, may not find ALVH to be their ideal fix. Despite the abundance of gore, the somber tone of Lincoln's journal entries may not be what readers expect. The book's tone can be either engaging or unappealing, depending on individual preferences. If you're seeking an action-packed thriller, you may be disappointed. However, Grahame-Smith's strength lies in blending fact and fiction to create an authentic atmosphere. Personally, I found the book's interesting historical elements and Scott Holst's solid performance enough to keep me engaged. A side note to fellow readers: It's a shame that audio can't include visuals! If you have any doubts about the authenticity of Honest Abe or the credibility of Grahame-Smith's work, do yourself a favor and visit the book's accompanying website. The photographs included in the printed version will surely give you a spine-chilling mix of repulsion, fascination, and terror!
  • Great Book! Fun read! The author's first book, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was fun - but a bit tongue and cheek. This book keeps your attention with actual historical facts cleverly laced with....vampire stories. Well written - keeps your interest solidly all the way through. The author does a fine job of keeping Lincoln's voice true throughout - making the book that much more interesting.
  • I must be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect when I rented this Audio Book-but I was pleasantly surprised. It held me spell bound in my car during my commute-I didn't want to get out of the car once I arrived at the office. It combines a love of history, and good old fashioned vampire-horror. I enjoyed it, and 100% recommend it. It's a refreshing change from some of the other "ho hum" material out there.
  • Move over Anne Rice, Stephenie Meyer and Christopher Moore. You are no longer the ruling royalty of the vampire genre. Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter is the wierdest tale of the undead ever! It is shocking to learn that the American Civil War was really about ridding our country of blood sucking pests. The reader will never look at a 5 dollar bill in quite the same way again. Honest Abe wasn't just a nerdy intellectual after all, he was a master of the battle ax. The movie comes out in 2012.
  • I love audio books but I think this book would have been better to read. As the narrator was reading and got to a footnote he would stop and say "footnote......" then he would go back to the story. I just felt that it broke up the story too much. I really liked the idea of this book though.
  • I honestly don't know how this book got any good reviews. Terrible narration and a below average story. The only interesting parts were the non vampire related back stories. I gave it one star only because it wouldn't let me give it 0
  • I give this book a 4 for accuracy in history and the author's cleverness in weaving a silly vampire story with the life of a GREAT man! Who would think to do such a thing? It revitalized my interest in our 16th President, not that there is any validity in his role as a Vampire Hunter, but as the man who started from nothing who brought our country through Civil War. I found this book entertaining and would recommend it to everyone. This book has the potential to kindle interest as let's face it...our silly American (Current) culture knows very little about factual historical figures yet they show a great interest in current celebrities who are for the most part USELESS!
