At the time I first read it back in middle school, my favorite book ever. Re-reading it now, I find it to be quite philosophically naive, but still a really compelling story of a Rabbi and member of the Sanhedrin in the Talmudic era trying to come to grips with faith vs. skepticism, religious vs. secular values, and loyalty to one's people vs. the greater good. Highly recommended.
Fascinating, leftist journalistic look at natural disaster in Southern California. Of particular interest in the chapter on the destruction of Los Angeles in film and fiction. A representative sentence: "Post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, overrun by terminators, androids, and gangs, has become as much a cliché as Marlowe’s mean streets or Gidget’s beach party."
Funny n quite heartwarming towards the end!
So much better than DaVinci Code. I was entertained the whole way through this one. Even the seeminly impossible scenes were setup so that they did not read as such. Langdon's character was well-written and although much of the content was foreign, it was described in a way that was easy to follow. Still, things were not so thoroughly explained that they would take away from the story. The element of the ambigrams through the book was so interesting to me that I have since become a bit obsessed with making them myself.
