If you like that one, try the one preceding it, and the seven following it.
They are a great series. I thought he did a great job with General Custer. Who'd have thunk he'd turn into a brilliant barrel strategist?

Half way through World War Z, and loving it. The journalistic style is not what I'm used to, but it's done very well.

I think you're missing quotation marks somewhere, haha. Poor Custer's Adjutant, whatever his name was, I forget. If you like WWZ, the author wrote a Zombie Survival Guide. Also, there's a film adaptation coming out that looks awful.

Finished Dark Tower, now reading Jack Reacher 6, Without Fail. My girlfriend wants me to get to The Count of Monte Cristo soon, but I've got two more books before that along with my required reading for school.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

WWZ was an awesome book. Loved it from beginning to end.

Lets see. Non GW books. Splitting my time between several books right now, some of them are GW books and some that aren't. They are Halo: Glasslands, A Storm of Swords, and Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

That not what I mean. At all. Some of the deaths are complete and utter crap, because they seem massively pointless. Even in A Feast for Crows. Sooner or later George R.R. Martin is going to run out of main characters at the rate he's killing them off. I love the books, don't get me wrong, but holy crap.

I don't find any death meaningless or out of place (without things leading to it). Lazy fat bastard knows his stuff.

On topic, I ' ve finished second book of Mistborn trilogy, Well of Ascension. It's even better than first.
