By DAN BROWN
Once you start reading, I bet you will not close the book until the last page,so did I. A twist awaits with each turning page that made me read the book restlessly. The description of Vatican City, illuminati, science, elements of earth and lot more occupy our thoughts.
Plot:: Professor Langdon is called to interpret a code found on a dead physicist chest. He discovers something suspicious, a threat. He later joins scientist Vittoria to save Vatican from a time bomb. Their tough time completing the task forms the rest of the story.
Characters:: Professor Robert Langdon and Vittoria are the two main characters who take you through the story. Other ‘n’ number of additional characters too make a mark.Even a guard’s character is so sketched, that you remember him even long after completing reading.
One thing I adore about Dan Brown’s works is the science & technology content. Also in this book are the eye-ball recognition system, particle accelerator, ambigrams, etc..
Aside reference to existing locations & agencies, It’s a piece of fiction, which sounds so real as though reading history.

A one line story in an elaborate form. It talks about magic, hidden secrets and soul of world. Interpreting dreams & omens are an interesting concept revealed in this book. The way a desert is depicted in words is commendable. This book narrating the life of a simple shepherd boy helps you to learn few basic essential things that help to discover your own treasure.
Plot:: A shepherd boy travels from Santiago to the Pyramids, in search of his treasure. His journey through the desert and lessons he learns are dramatically described.

ஓத்த அடி பாதையில்
என் பாதையிலிருந்து விலகி
அதன் பின்னால் போனேன்…
திசை அறியா காட்டில்
வானத்தை பார்த்து நின்றேன்!!
Yes, it’s about the water again. 🙄
I’m so much energized by this thing called water… Be it sea, rain or waterfalls- all forms are hypnotizer(s).
They tranquil me, talk to me and teach me a lot. Proud to say,’ I can interpret their language’ 🙂
Here are few of such interpretations- – ->
Sea talks to me about staying calm & patient, for anger is like a cyclone.
Rivers show to abide boundaries, even if you fail to follow the rules.
Waterfall taps me down saying not to be too proud.
Rain reminds me that someone above is watching all that’s happening.
Boiling steam asks me to be volatile, for you’ll b thrown out of this world anytime.
Melting ice says be influenced but don’t lose your identity.
‘While in Rome do as Romans do’, but don’t forget, when you are back home you cannot stay as you were in Rome.. Adaptability to surroundings is important, but at the same time don’t lose your originality, that’s more important.
ORIGINALITY… Many of us wonder what am I originally. Here are few questions to help you out, try answering them to yourself.
What irritates you the most??
What raises your temper??
What makes you sick??
You cry for??
You awe at??
When do you maintain silence??
You laugh at??
Which kind of place you would like to hang out??
You believe in??
If you managed to answer all the questions, well you know who you are. Skip the next paragraph:-)
For others who struggled answering them.. Here you go. You‘re yet to discover yourself. Till now you had been dependent on someone else’s liked/dislikes/thoughts… It’s high time you get to know yourself. How can you get to know?? It’s simple STOP AND PAY ATTENTION. Take time to watch yourself, your actions, thoughts & reactions. Watch keenly.
After discovering the real you, now it’s about maintaining it.
Be Choosy. Don’t follow the crowd. Be bold enough to speak out what you feel. Don’t always nod because everyone else is doing that. Initially you’ll be treated as a stranger, but later who gets fit with all that you are‘ll stay in forever with you.
