books


Okay.. this should start some chit..lol
I just finished reading Dan Brown. He wrote the Da Vinci Code. I read that first, then bought his pre-quel. The "Angels & Demons". WOW, what a book. I thoroughly enjoyed both books. I am now re reading the Da Vinci Code.
Have you read these?? What do you think?? Do you agree with any of this?? It has made me think. T

Only read the first, Angels and Demons. It was great. Told it was the better of the two. Wife had Da Vinci Code but loaned it out before I could read it and it never came back.
Dan Brown has some other good ones. Check 'em out.
Currently I'm reading books on quantum mechanics, extra dementions and stuff. Heavy stuff not for reading before bed unless I'm quite awake. Read Chronicles of Narnia before that. All 7 books. Prior to the movie. Was fun relaxing reading.

I am TRYING to read the Chronicles of Narnia, but I am remembering why I was never able to read him in HS... I will force myself to finish it though. I haven't seen the movie yet either. T

VERY TRUE,(cplnfbks).. the vatican has much hidden information that would blow a hole in the human races' thinking. allegedly there's a third testament which is guarded like gold bullion and if that got out it could change religion as we know it.

I agree!! Both are great books. I don't know if I agree or not, but know that history is always tainted by it's retelling and interpretation. A retelling of any event, even one that occured yesterday, can alter important facts and details, rendering it to be untrue, or only as true as the storyteller knows the facts. Given this, any "history" is only what is intended for you to know....

Yes and that is what DB is trying to get out.. just in story form.. that how the Bible is too. story form... T

I dragged a copy of Angels & Demons along withme on a trip to Mexico earlier this year. It was a fantastic, gripping read. I couldn'y get a full nite's rest until I had completed all the chapters. However, I do have a problem with the ending, which seemed to read like a contorted wrap-up device, especially as compared to the hypnotic, fast paced rest of the book. That part about the bookshelves careening over each other in the Vatican library's archives was amazing!

That was pretty cool. I wish we all could read what is stored in that library..T
