The Rule of Four

The Rule of FourIan Caldwell, Dustin Thomason

I saw this book compared to Da Vinci Code, but I disagree. I enjoyed this one. Yeah, is does have some of the over the top “hidden messages from the past” stuff in it, but on the whole it was a bit more believable (I didn’t make pppppppft sounds every few pages). More than anything, I think Caldwell and Thomason did a good job in creating likeable, realistic and fleshed-out characters, particularly the academics who become so enmeshed in their research of the dead and gone that the here and now is another world to them. A good summer read.
