Abraham Lincoln: Vampire hunter

Anyone else read this one? What did you think? I did not think it was a great book. Not even sure I thought it was a good book. it was interesting enough to keep me reading to the end. Interesting protrayal of Lincoln as a character.

Re: 70s & 80s Memorable Movie Themes

wow no one thinks the Main theme for Jurassic park is memorable? For me that piece of music stands out more than even Williams Star Wars work.
