quote Mouldy CheeseHaha, I finished it yesterday and IcarusAbides got the brunt of my "wtf"-age. I'm glad you both made me read Warbreaker beforehand though it certainly added to all the questions I had at the end, as if there weren't enough of those already =Pquote Dragoon*Anxiously awaits the "wtf/omg" moment*Should probably update y'all. Finished Warbreaker about two weeks ago and have since been reading Words of Radiance. About 65% of the way through it now, and as usual with Sanderson, loving every minute of it.

quote Mouldy CheeseScariest book I've ever read for sure. Insanely good. High school history teacher lent me it and it freaked me out.I picked up The Hot Zone the other day to read on the plane; thought I'd make a change from fantasy to thriller for a little while. I mistakenly thought that this book was fictional. About half way through it, I found out it's all true which makes it all the more terrifying. Stephen King said it's the scariest book he's ever read and I'd have to agree. What makes it worse is that I google about Ebola and there's currently the worst outbreak ever taking place. oh gosh. oh gosh. oh gosh.
I recommend it. It's interesting and I think the more people who are aware of what to do/what not to do if there's an outbreak the better. It seems a little bit like some of the events have been a tad sensationalised with the writing. And there's a lot of miscellaneous back story of which some sections are completely irrelevant. For example, at one point it tells of a near miss but goes into the woman's background, where she got married, what her children are like, the pets they keep at home...kinda unneeded. I started skipping those sections about half way through.
quote ChrisYeah do it! We're all crazy about Sanderson here! I started with The Way of Kings before going back and going through the Mistborn trilogy (enjoyed it immensely), and now in the middle of reading Words of Radiance (the sequel to Way of Kings). Definitely my favourite author of late.I should probably look at reading a Sanderson novel. They keep appearing in the recommended section on my 'goodreads' page.
I'm currently reading my first Stephen King novel, The Talisman. I've actually been pretty lazy with it since starting it earlier this week but I've been so damn busy and when I haven't been, I've crashed out for the night. I'm about 60 pages in and it's been pretty gripping thus far.
quote Mouldy CheeseSuch a great book though, one of my absolute faves and Lightsongquote IcarusAbidesI think we hammered it into him pretty hard, lol.
I am also reading Warbreaker right now! For the er...fifth-ish time? My copy is looking pretty battered :S
