Abraham Lincoln, Vampire by Rowland Rowling
Abraham Lincoln, Vampire, Rowland Rowling. ?self-published?: Philtre Libre or Abe Lincoln Vampire Productions, 2010 and 2012. e-book, 171 pps.
This particular book reads like a very stuffy and boring history book. The premise that Abe Lincoln was a blood-sucker could have led to much creativity. Instead, not.
The only part that I appreciated was that the blood of Mexicans was spicier than the blood of other peoples.
sapphoq reviews says: This might be a book to give to a teen as a sneaky way to get him or her to read some history-- providing that the teen understands that we have no historical evidence that Lincoln liked to drink blood or was capable of ripping the necks off of people who displeased him.
A sharp disappointment. Not recommended. Even history buffs will fail to "appreciate" this rendering of Lincoln.
