I wanna read it!

I'm reading right now a book about the political / economical situation in my Country, just for school (damn school...lol). My country has the most complex political situation in the WORLD.

I started with the "da vinci Code " but I'm busy and don't get past page 80 I wanted to see what all the fuss is about, but the book is starting to speed up now.
If somebody tells the clue of the book before I've read it, I WILL KILL YOU

I ain't read it yet but I'm going to. I've heard that "Angels and Demons" is a better book than "da Vinci Code". My mum told me not to read it, but I want to, I'm really curious what's 'inside' the book so that it's so famous.

The Great Gatsby? Disastrous! (IMO)

Yup................ Just when I thought the book might start to get interesting, it ended.

The Da Vinci Code could've been good, but why did Dan Brown feel the need to insult the beliefs of billions of people around the world just so he could write a novel. No one would accept something like that written about Budha or Mohamed. Makes the Pope look like a hit man, or the God Father, or something.

Last books I read were the C.S. Lewis space trillogy. They all left me kind of cold, though the third book was the most developed.

yeah I read those CS Lewis space ones once. Quite liked the first one (interesting ideas), but got a bit bored halfway through the second one and never finished it. As for the Da Vinci Code, enjoyable book, definately written with on eye on easy film adaptation. in a similar vein, although a bit heavweight, Foucault's Pendulum (Umberto Eco) was good. I struggled through the first 3 chapters before I got into it, although its never pacy. Last book I read was Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. 1886-1931-1965-1983-scary future-postapocolypse. Weird. but good. Also been trying to read Samuel Pepys Diary. Have got to February and its a bit boring. Really want to get to Great Fire of London, but don't know if I can stick with it. Otherwise interesting as its an insight into 1666 life but even less pacy than Foucaults pendulum. And now starting some of girlfriend's trashy-lesbo-victorian-chicklit.

And be sure to check out Digital Fortress.

I also hear the new Dan Brown is coming out - The Solomon King or something?!

The Solomon King? Didn't know that - but the Dan Brown book is due mid-2005 last time I heard. It will also be another book featuring Robert Langdon.

But last book I read: I Have A Dream - Martin Luther King Jr.
