I enjoy books that detail the Legends & Myths of Vampires so when I picked up Thomas D'Agostino's book "A History of Vampire's in New England" I was thrilled to see that it didn't disappoint. It was writted with great detail and with even a touch of humor so many authors lack today. Being a native New Englander especially from Rhode Island even I learned a thing or 2 from Mr. D'Agostino. I am, to say the least a huge fan of his work, and look forward to seeing more of his work in the coming future! AAAAAA++++++

I picked this up because I really liked some of the other vampire books based on New England myths. I was really disappointed - If you've never read anything about it this would be ok I guess, but This just seems like a quick summary of Food for the Dead by Dr. Michael Bell. Also the writing was kinda weird, like the writer wants to sound like a professor using big words, but he doesn't seem to know what they mean sometimes. Its not the first time I've read one of his books, but they all have been a bit like this. I don't think I can recommend it.
