While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a 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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to be better than the print version?

not sure...

What did you like best about this story?

The melding of true historic data with fictional amendments.

What aspect of Scott Holst’s performance would you have changed?

Sometimes its hard to know who is talking when characters switch back and forth. Also, any time Henry interrupts other characters the character stops talking.... Then there is a silence gab.. THEN Henry will talk... Its not how normal conversations occur.. Or how people interrupt each other... It just seemed un-natural.

Any additional comments?

This book has inspired me to pick up some historical non-fiction books on audible. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed hearing about actual historical events.. (Vampires obviously not being part of that history :)

Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

I read a few reviews from people on this site and amazon. They tried to compare The Lost Gate to the Enders Game series. They said Ender's Game was better. However, I cannot agree. Don't get me wrong we named my son and daughter ender and valentine (middle names). So we love Enders game very much.
The Lost Gate was just different than Enders Game. First its a fantasy book. Which is the most obvious difference. Danny the main character was every bit as likable as Ender Wiggin. I am not going to do this book justice in the form of a "great review". My opinion as it stands is this is a truly awesome story. Anxiously awaiting the next book.
