Actually I'm just into the third book.
The first book was a bit slow but I really liked the second. The third is good so far.

Is it bad I have been thinking about a zombie apocalypse 24/7 after reding the WWZ?
To the point where I have convinced myself it's possible.

That sometimes happens to me after watching a film or reading a book about them, gotta stock up on dem twinkies.

Anyways, almost finished Salem's Lot, not sure what I'm going to read after it, might give World War Z ago since everyone I've spoke to has said it is a solid read.

I got into the 4th book about halfway and had to stop. But I bought them all, so I'll restart that book sooner or later. I just hate flashbacks of that scale. I did enjoy book 3 a lot.

Pretty much everyone I know pretty much creams their panties over those books so I'm finding it hard to get a valid answer that isn't just "JUST READ THEM THEY ARE AWESOME" and whatnot.
I have heard different opinions about Malazan. some says it is really great, while other says it is not that good. I tried to read GOTM twice, but stopped both times. First time i stopped at prologue, second time at around 50 page. honestly i never really tried hard to continue reading first book. It take lot of time to read 10 book long series. The series is still in my to read list and i will read it some day. Some readers also say that it can be read from second book and first book can be read later.

About the nature of series, this would explain better.
This epic 10 part series is finally completed as of 2011. It's one hell of a ride from start to finish. For some people, Mazalan is too "epic" to understood or enjoyed. But we are talking about "epic" fantasy here and you can't get more epic than the Mazalan books -- there's a huge cast of powerful characters that grow and mature over the series, there's super villains and super heroes, vast landscapes explored, and the series is on such a scale that the series jumps between past and present. Basically, if you are looking for a big EPIC with a lot of stress on the EPIC part, Mazalan Book of the Fallen is as epic as you'll find. It's also an adventure that you won't forget. This book has helped change the face of fantasy. As such, it's a must read.

I'd reccomend Trainspotting. It's quite hard to read in regards to language but a hell of a novel once you get stuck into it.

Bought some Hemingway and a Hemingway bio today. Should be an interesting read.
