Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

 I can't wait for my up and coming road trip with my teens! I have our new 10 hour CD book to help pass along the time! We will be listening to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! This is a 9 disk unabridged read by Scott Holst and featuring an interview with the author, Seth Grahame-Smith.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Here is the description from the box:

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." 
     "My baby boy..." she whispers before dying.

Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire.

When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, "Henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion.  I shall become a master of mind and body.  And this mastery shall have but one purpose..." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.

While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving the Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years.  That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years. 

Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.

The CD also contains a bonus PDF of historical photographic documents.

I"ll be sure to report back and let you know what we thought of this CD!  I have loved his other books! See below!

I've been very curious about his book. It sound so interesting, but I haven't heard about it from anyone, so I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say about it. Thanks for swinging by my blog today. I would love to share my recipe on your Guest Chef spot. Just send me an email about what you need me to do. I also do a similar thing every Friday if you are interested. :)
