I have not seen the movie. I haven't heard good things about it, but I'm still anxiously waiting for my husband to finish the book so that we can rent the film.
I truly enjoyed this novel. The whole idea seems blasphemous, but Seth Grahame-Smith is quite brilliant, in my opinion. Instead of blasphemy it felt to me like the novel revealed a wonderful act of fondness for our former president.
The storyline is nearly seamless tapestry of fact and fiction. I often pulled my phone out while reading to try to figure out what the real history was. Somehow, the writing is so convincing that a part of the reader is starting to think, "Wow, maybe he really did hunt vampires." So crazy, I know, but for me it was the perfect recipe for indulgent summer reading.
I came out the other side ready and willing to learn more about Abraham Lincoln -- and feeling like I truly did get a sense of him as a man. (Pull out the vampire stuff, and you learn quite some about the real man).
Will I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? Maybe if it lands in the dollar store, I'll pick it up.
