I used to be a bookworm... from Primary till Secondary School. I used to read Bookworm Stories (I think I was a Bookworm Club member even!), then progressed to reading thrillers like Nancy Drew, and fantasy, detective, romance, horror stories etc etc.
Well, I still read here and there. But last week, I managed to finish off 2 books - Jodi Picoult's Plain Truth and Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. What a feat!
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed reading Angels and Demons!
I almost could not put the book down each time I picked it up! It was a fast-paced adventure about religion and science. Mysteries being cleverly unraveled, well-planned horrific murders (!) and the twists made me enjoy this read ALOT.
Here's part of the summary from the book jacket (intro only...)
When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol -- seared into the chest of a murdered physicist -- he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati... the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has surfaced from the shadows to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy... the Catholic Church.
So, I personally recommend this book.
