I just finished the book and thought it a little disappointing, especially the ending, as you knew exactly where the author was taking you. The tie in with Edgar Allen Poe was cool and yet the idea that Lincoln lost all of his loved ones because of vampires was way too depressing. Also as a southern it was really kind of nasty to imply that our way of live was derived from ancient European vampires who only wanted a steady food supply and that if you live below the Mason Dixon you were obviously too stupid to realize that you had somehow been tricked into becoming a racist. Anyway, if the movie is more violent then the book; I doubt that I will bother seeing it, as I’m just not into watching heads roll…
