The author did a great job both masking and coinciding facts with fiction. I'm going to have to find a biography of Abraham Lincoln now to really sort out the facts from the non-obvious fiction, but the story was well told and kept me wanting to read more. Just when you think you know the ending, it jumps up and shocks you. I definitely recommend this book to history buffs that want a bit of whimsy.

Well, I'm not sure yet because the two completely differ so far, so it's like I'm following a different storyline than the movie, lol! So far it's okay, I just wish I'd stop trying to compare the book and movie, because it's quite evident I can't compare them, haha
