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.

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.
Yeah 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.

Also, I love The Talisman. I'm a big Stephen King fan, probably my all time favourite author. The sequel to The Talisman was also quite good, but didn't quite have the charm that the first part has.

The Way of Kings is now finished and, by request of IcarusAbides and Mouldy Cheese, I'm not going straight into the sequel, Words of Radiance, instead I'm starting Warbreaker!
At least you're doing what you're told finally
I 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

Such a great book though, one of my absolute faves and Lightsong

The Way of Kings - Brandon Sanderson, because IcarusAbides and Mouldy Cheese bullied me into it.
