You might expect a book titled Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to be a fun romp full of vampire slayings and people breaking out into song. In fact, Abe's story begins with him getting sad about killing a turkey and it only gets sadder from there. Historians sometimes wonder if Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln were depressive, and after reading this book, we can't help but wonder that, too. They have lots of reasons to be sad, considering how their loved ones keep dropping like flies. But Abe and Mary aren't the only sad people here; even the narrator struggles with the blues. Still, sadness can be a good thing, too, at least in the sense that it fuels Abe's sense of duty and desire for revenge.
