meh reading n almost done w/ "The Face-Dean Koontz

[quote=Ex.of summary] He's Hollywood's most dazzling star, who inspires the worship of millions and the hatred of one twisted soul. His perfectly ordered existence is under siege as a series of terrifying "messages" penetrates the security of his legendary estate. All that stands between him and an insidious killer is a weary ex-cop who has already seen his own death.

Im reading the Gathering Storm by Brandon Sanderson
hes continuing on since the original author Robert Jordan
passed away

Its an epic story with the characters annoying with
flaws humanlike that make them well developed
and after reading you feel glad you are who you are.

I'm reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series book 7, The Dark Tower. It's the final book of an amazing series (books 3 and 6 are so-so, but the rest is amazing).

When I'm done I'll probably move on to Dune and/or Atlas Shrugged.

Five days to save a world. Five nightmare days for the reluctant Russian rocket jockey entrusted with Earth's future; for the woman astronaut who may be the last human on the Moon; for the scientist who must deflect the "possums" [POSSible IMpactors] or witness the end of science itself. And for Vice President Charlie Haskell, the career politician wo discovers unexpected reservesof courage and principle as he makes choices not only for himself and his country, but for all humankind.

Summary wrote:
We are alone. That is the verdict, after centuries of search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence missions and space exploration. The only living things in the Universe are found on the Nine Worlds settled from Earth, and the starships that knit them together. Or so it's believed, until Dr. Kimberly Brandywine sets out to find what happened to her clone-sister Emily, who, after the final, unsuccessful manned SETI expedition, disappeared along with the rest of her ship's crew. Followinga few ominous clues, Kim discovers the ship's log was faked. Something happened out there in the darkness between the stars, and she's prepared to go to any length to find answers. Even if it means giving up her career...stealing a starship...losing her lover. Kim is about to discover the truth about er sister-and about more than she ever dared imagine.

If u disobey u r sent to a place to where u learn all is right that they say then kill u, so they can never say thier rule is flawed it was interesting.
