couldn't resist and bought the book. I know its seems like spoiling
myself for the upcoming movie, but I was curious how it was written and
after reading the first two chapters did I realize how interesting the
movie would be.
My only comment and advise for everyone is that if you plan to buy the book and expecting it to be written like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters,
you might be disappointed with the writing style, or in my opinion,
very much relieved that it veered away from lifted literature and
created its own fictional alternate history biography of one of
America's well known presidents.
The best comparison I can give when comparing the storyline is that its similar to George Lucas' Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire where you get to see what happened behind the scenes that led to The Empire Strikes Back,
except that Star Wars was never a factual history, nor that George
Lucas (no offense) wrote Shadows in the way he wrote the prequel
Trilogy. Although with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter I would need to brush up with the history of
America's Civil War to fully appreciate the scenes and situations that
dotted its literary landscape.
So I'll leave it to you guys to either watch the movie or read the book first, but for now I wont mind spoiling myself on the details of the story, as the book entertaining in itself.
