Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Movie Versus The Book

Although I read the book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter a few months back, I just now watched the movie. 

I found the book fascinating. So much so that I ended up reading it twice. I really loved the idea of a secret journal belonging to this great President detailing the life of a vampire hunter. I thought the book was detailed and very realistic. 

So I expected the movie to be, but it just fell flat. 

There were several scenes from the book that I hoped would be in the film. They weren't. It seemed like they tried to cram several scenes in, but they didn't have the development needed to bring it through. I was just really disappointed!

I would say my favorite part of the book was the first half. This covers most of his activity as a vampire hunter. I really felt like they could have covered more of this in the movie. Or they could have been like "The Twilight Saga" and had a part 1 and 2 huh?

I did think Rufus Sewell did a good job with his role. I've always found him to be a great actor. 

If you have watched the film but not read the book, make sure to read it. The book has a lot of details that the movie never touched on. If I would have watched the film first, I doubt I would have ever read the book. Get a used copy of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by clicking here (cheap).

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some
guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own
blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking
about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
