After settling in the town of New Salem, Illinois, where he worked as a shopkeeper and a postmaster, Lincoln became involved in local politics as a supporter of the Whig Party, winning election to the Illinois state legislature in 1834. Lincoln then squared off against Douglas in a series of famous debates; though he lost the Senate election, Lincoln’s performance made his reputation nationally. His profile rose even higher in early 1860, after he delivered another rousing speech at New York City’s Cooper Union.

Reviews about Abraham Lincoln, A Novel Life (The Out of Time Series) (7):
Eseve
Through learning about this book, I've also learned that there is a huge amount of what I'll call "Lincoln fanfiction" out there in the world, and much of it is related to time travel.

I think this book can be described as a combination of a history textbook about Abraham Lincoln and The Time Traveler's Wife. There is a lot of information crammed into almost every paragraph about Lincoln, his cabinet and the people that he knew in his life. Chapters alternate between Lincoln and his love interest in 1955, Joan, as they meander around Chicago and talk about death. There isn't much of a story to speak of: just a lot of deliberation about his decisions in life and his wonderment at how America has changed. It's so fortunate he happened to run into a random woman with such a broad understanding of history and politics so she could provide him with so much exposition.

I also just don't like having to read Abraham Lincoln sex fantasy passages. It's doubly irritating because the author strongly implies that Mary Todd was a sex-withholding lesbian, which is pretty ironic (and unfair) given that many historians have posited that Lincoln himself was gay.

If someone is a major Lincoln (or Lincoln time-travel genre) fan, this will be an appealing book and thought experiment.

The idea of reading a time traveling Abraham Lincoln trilogy was hard for me to resist picking up. Fortunately, Tony Wolk’s dreamlike prose manages to make his work feel well crafted, and because of his writing style, the time traveling Lincoln concept somehow doesn’t teeter over to the point of feeling ridiculous in its execution. Instead, Wolk’s story comes off as being sincere, and I found myself having fun reading Lincoln maneuvering the strangeness of 1950’s Evanston as he contemplates his new surroundings. Wolk also weaves nice elements of history into his fiction, but you don’t necessarily need to be a history buff to enjoy this book, and I’m sure anyone with an interest in time traveling sci-fi would equally enjoy reading this as well.

Overall the concept works well, even if it is one I never imagined prior, and this book clearly comes from a playful mind with a creative imagination. There are a few difficult moments where the plot stagnates, but the story itself wastes no time launching Lincoln into the future.

I will admit, if Abraham Lincoln really did jump forward in time, I can see him handling it with the same equanimity he did in this novel—he was very much a “roll up your sleeves and get to it” kind of guy. Lincoln’s character was engaging and decently written for the most part, though he did tend to speechify excessively (even our sixteenth president can’t be a fortune cookie-like fount of wisdom every time he opens his mouth).
Still, this book didn’t amount to much more than Abraham Lincoln fanfiction—boring fanfiction at that. One-dimensional love interest, unconvincing romance, “someone to remember me by” ending and all. The novel was also twice as long as it needed to be—most of the second half wasn’t at all necessary to the story. I had difficulty engaging with this story, let alone finishing it. Since Lincoln had his charming moments, I’ll grant this book two stars.

This is easily the weirdest time travel book I have ever encountered, and that my friends, is saying something. The thing you need to know is that “Abraham Lincoln, A Novel Life” isn’t really a time travel book. Not in the “Back to the Future” style anyway. The time travel is just a kind of narrative trick that allows Tony Wolk (and us) to spend time with Lincoln and to help us understand the man he must have been back before he became an American myth.

To tell you about all the little details of the plot (like the steamy love affair!) would be to kind of miss the point of the book. This novel is a reflection on America and on the facts of our past (the book is FILLED with small and charming facts). It is sober and sometimes slow and sometimes quite beautiful. I would recommend it to anyone interested in Lincoln or in the way that Americans are all haunted by our collective past.

Book Review: Abraham Lincoln: A Novel of Life by Tony Wolk

I love to read anything history, especially American history. If one where to peruse my bookshelf, they would see the latest Hamilton biography, A Team of Rivals, and tons of books by Mitch McCullum.

I would highly recommend this novel to anybody who loves historical fiction and a story of one of the greatest presidents in a different setting.

I did not expect to like this book, at least not as much as I do. It's such a strange premise, and why Abraham Lincoln? It was surprisingly really interesting and enjoyable, though, with a great twist. The bits about the specific battles and generals in the Civil War dragged a little bit, mostly because they were largely summary rather than present action, but otherwise, the story was compelling, the characters in both Lincoln's (normal) time and Joan's time were interesting, and while it appeared at first to try to paint Lincoln as this paragon of perfection, other perspectives were eventually (at least somewhat) represented, including his own, near the end. I wish I could give this 4.5 stars, because that's how I really feel about it--it was just those bits that dragged that I took issue with. I'm really excited to read the next two books in this trilogy.

This book wasn’t especially deep or thoughtful, but it didn’t need to be. With a fun premise and a compelling cast of characters, it did everything it tried to and did it well. I liked the dynamics between Lincoln and Joan, and really enjoyed how humanizingly Lincoln is treated. We’ll never know what would really happen if Abraham Lincoln could time travel (probably?), but I’m glad we get to know what happens to this Lincoln in Tony Wolk’s next book!
