Re: The Book thread.

World War Z is a good read, makes me wonder if the movie will be any good.

Re: The Book thread.

Started reading 'The Naked and the Dead' by Norman Mailer on the train a few days ago. It's a long book, so although I managed 300-pages, I've still got a lot to go. Don't mind at all, though; I think Mailer's pretty darn great.

Re: The Book thread.

I heard they are doing t he movie like the book was written. But it'll probably show the stuff happening while the interveiw people are telling the story.

Re: The Book thread.

Recently finished Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

It was really good. Well written, and done with the complete seriousness of an Anne Rice novel.
It's a shame about the movie though. With Tim Burton and the director of Wanted both being involved, I can't say I'm holding out much hope for it.

Re: The Book thread.

around 300 pages into The Way Of Kings (Stormlight Archive #1). Does have the potential to be a great epic fantasy series, i'd suggest it.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

Have you read any of Sanderson's other books? I keep trying to figure out how to logically explain why I liked Alloy better than the first three Mistborn books but so far I've pretty much got nothing.
