|The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason|
Mainly set within the confines of Princeton University, The Rule of Four is a fast paced story about Tom Sullivan and his friend, Paul's fascination over a Renaissance book titled the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a text that has baffled scholars for years.
The book, in all its mystery, draws its reader into its hidden depths. Nothing is quite as it seems. So when people near Tom and Paul are being killed one by one, it leaves them both wondering if there is more to the chapters than meets the eye (read the full summary here at Amazon.com.)
If you loved The Da Vinci Code, then you'll definitely be as equally fascinated by this. Chock-full of historical facts and legends, The Rule of Four is a page turner that will keep you guessing at every turn. A little elitist in nature with an ending that, although you've already had a feeling would turn out as such, stays true to the mystery surrounding the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. Makes for one good read. J
The strong take from the weak,
but the smart take from the strong.
