    ZigZag - Nicholas Booth

    Eddie Chapman was a womaniser, blackmailer and safecracker. He was also a great hero - the most remarkable double agent of the Second World War. Chapman became the only British national ever to be awarded an Iron Cross for his work for the Reich. He was also the only German spy ever to be parachuted into Britain twice. But it was all an illusion: Eddie fooled the Germans in the same way he conned his victims in civilian life. He was working for the British all along. Until now, the full story of Eddie Chapman's extraordinary exploits has never been told, thwarted by the Official Secrets Act. Now at last all the evidence has been released, including Eddie's M15 files, and a complete account of what he achieved is told in this enthralling book.

    Currently reading book 5 of the Wheel of Time series, have to say I'm enjoying it so far, but the "braid tugging" is starting to get on my nerves.

    Not forgetting "folding her arms under her breasts", I mean where else are the female characters going to fold their arms, behind their backs?

    But apart from little annoyances like that I think it deserves the reputation it has. I can already tell tarmon gai'don is going to be epic, I just hope Loial, Rhuarc and Mat live long enough to see it. Although part of me suspects that Mat and Loial will live to see it, Rhuarc doesn't have the plot armour that the other two seem to have, which leaves me slightly worried.

    Finished Buried Hope by XJ Selman, and it was fucking awesome!^^ Good pacing, believable characters, quite standard dystopian/sci-fi world but his plot makes up for it. The book also seems better because it is his debut, and the only thing I can complain about is the length. GIEF MOAR!

    Considering buying copies for all my friends w/ Kindles or Kindle Apps, so I can support him with more than the paltry $.99.

    Just bought the "fourth" Mistborn book by Brandon Sanderson, the name eludes atm, and I'm rereading Wheel of Time, halfway through the Perrin-less book.

    Srsly, fuck that detail -.-

    I have just started the Wheel of Time books. And I am hooked. 10 years ago when I first discovered them I was daunted by the sheer amount of these books, thinking I would never have the time to read them all or have the patience. But to be honest the moment I opened up the Eye of the World I havent put the book down, in less than a week I am over half way through and have already ordered the second book The Great Hunt.

    Some fantasy books take me ages to get into maybe some really just drag, but I like the pacing in this book, it goes just about right to me, I love books with alot of character development and world descriptions. Its kind of like if I were to write a fantasy book it would be like this.

    I kind of wished I had picked up the books 10 years ago now, especially as I had more time to read them as I do now but I am still getting through them very fast now.

    The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. I found the movie to be pretty cool but then the ending just left me on a cliffhanger and I wanted to know what happened next so I decided to get back into reading and start with the His Dark Materials series. I like it, it's pretty cool.
