No clue. I just hope that if Mr. Holst decides to narrate another book that he is at least interested in the story because it certainly seems as if he did not really enjoy this book, or at least that is how I felt about his reading. Enthusiasm is key when reading a book to people; kids enjoy it and so do adults.
Being that it was just over 10 hours long, no.
I enjoyed this story a lot. I hope the movie is good, too. Some may think there was not enough of the "vampire" gore and whatnot but as I am a minimalist when it comes to reading (i don't like/need a lot of detail) this was good for me. This was also my first audio book and I really enjoyed listening as it allowed me to picture in my mind quite easily what was going on and follow along, something which is very hard for me to do when I read "print and ink". I suggest this book to friends!
I am not inclined toward horror novels... but I have to say that this was one of the most enjoyable books I've listened to in a long time. The backdrop of history mixed with the humanism of the would-be emancipator really paint an intriguing picture in a seamlessly-integrated the background of the war within the war, humans vs. vampires.
For everyone who ever wished to read a book that contained both Abraham Lincoln and vampires pony up the cash and read this book on tape immediately!
....to like this. Some parts are interesting, the others are just "meh". I finally gave up eight hours into the narrative. The book seemed to get stuck in certain places with a lot of talk. The author was quite clever interweaving the biographic aspect with the vampires, but it just wasn't interesting enough to keep my attention.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this audiobook. When you hear a title like "Vampire Hunter" one doesn't always know what to expect. The book delivers an incredibly smart, enthralling, and magnificent story that will have you recommending it to friends.
I candidly could not tell where fact and fiction interfaced in the author's own mind. A potential classic was turned into a B grade zombie movie-esque storyline. Very disappointing...
the story is awesome! took me a while to get used to the narrator because i am spoiled with Roy Dotrice from a game of thrones but scott did a good job. 5 stars overall!!!
yes! he did his best! good job scott!
It was written well, the narration was well done, the research done meticulous,
Abraham Lincoln. He was a very complex man. This book shows his humanity, his deep feelings for his family and his country.
He is a good reader making his narration well done and the story believeable.
There were places I had tears in my eyes.
I highly recommend this book. I am also anxiously awaiting the debut of the movie adapted from this book.
No. It's short as books go. It would take awhile to forget
I loved the historical fiction. I loved the research and matching of the times and contemporaries
When he was saved by the vampire. That was a surprise!
I would be hard to write something that disrespected old Abe in the USA. This book retained his towering strength of conviction with a twist that still respected the man
This was very interesting and entertaining. The narrator was excellent. I highly recommend this book to all.
