“Damn, I miss the internet. You could always find people doing stupid stuff on the internet.”

Summary

When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy.

David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when the Reckoners’ leader struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back…

But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying.

Personal Experiences

Okay. Deep Breath . . .

THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME BEYOND AWESOME!!!!!

 

Everyone knows that the final book of a dystopian trilogy is always the most action-packed, the one with the most risks, the one where everyone and everything is against them.

BRANDON SANDERSON EXCEEDED EVERY REQUIREMENT AND THEN ADDED SOME MORE!

I could read this book for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever. It is just so perfect. 

BETTER THAN A MARVEL MOVIE!
BETTER THAN ANY SUPERHERO YOU KNOW!
BETTER THAN ANY DYSTOPIAN BOOK YOU HAVE EVER READ!
CALAMITY BY BRANDON SANDERSON

Quotes

“The sun peeked over the horizon like the head of a giant radioactive manatee.”


“You…can ride a bike, can’t you?”
“Sure I can,” I said, getting onto one of the squeaky things. “At least I used to be able to. Haven’t done it in years, but it’s like riding a bike, right?”
“Technically, yes.”


“Pre-Calamity people had been weird. Awesome too–evidence: castle—but still pretty weird.”


“Cupcakes are too dainty for a Scotsman. Give him one, and he’ll ask why didn’t you shoot the wee cake’s parents instead and serve that.”


“My Megan is a sunrise, always changing, but beautiful the entire time.”


“I thought I’d gotten over feeling like I need to strangle members of this team. Turns out my desire to murder Cody in a violent, dehumanizing fashion had nothing to do with the darkness. It was completely natural.”


“Is it gonna take my breath now,” Mizzy asked, “or, like, sometime down the road? I’d like to be prepared.”


“The comment quieted the room, like a sudden shout of “Who wants extra bacon?” at a bar mitzvah.” (Get it? Because you don’t eat meat at a bar mitzvah!)


“You want to fight a god? You’d better have one on your side too.”


“To a drone I’d have a tiny heat signature, like a squirrel or something. A secretly very, very deadly squirrel.”


“People are people. Whatever happens, they make communities, struggle for normalcy. Even”


“I hate you,” I muttered. “Ach, now, don’t be like that. Ghosts are drawn to negative emotions, you see.”


“Emergency? Knighthawk sent. I’m just bored.
I blinked, holding my phone and rereading that text.
Bored? I sent. You’re literally spying on the entire world, Knighthawk. You can read anyone’s mail, listen to anyone’s phone calls.
First, it’s not the whole world, he wrote. Only large chunks of North and Central America. Second, do you have any idea how mind-numbingly DULL most people are?
I started a reply, but a flurry of messages came at me, interrupting what I was going to say.
Oh! Knighthawk wrote. Look at this pretty flower!
Hey. I want to know if you like me, but I can’t say that, so here’s an awkward flirtation instead.
Where are you?
I’m here.
Where?
Here.
There?
No, here.
Oh.
Look at my kid.
Look at my dog.
Look at me.
Look at me holding my kid and dog.
Hey, everyone. I took a huge koala this morning.
Barf. The world is ruled by deific beings who can do stuff like melt buildings into puddles of acid, and all people can think of to do with their phones is take pictures of their pets and try to figure out how to get laid.”


“Groovy? Is that some kind of code word?”

  1. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
