(2004) Pretty good story of 4 college students at Princeton that try to solve the mystery of a 15th century book that has puzzled investigators over the year. It leads to two murders and the death of one of the 4. Much better written than any of Dan Brown's books of similar subject matter.

The editorial reviews on this book were glowing, so I picked it up my for genre fiction class. I had mixed feelings about it. It wasn't unreadable, but it wasn't great. I feel like it's the kind of book you'd expect from recent college graduates. Meh.

I liked it. I enjoyed the characters – i love a book with good character development. They were believable and likeable (for the most part). The story itself was the ‘ok’ part. A friend was right when he said the puzzles were useless as the reader couldn’t solve them. If you ignore the puzzles, it was a mediocre mystery novel with some historical fact/fiction thrown in.

Overall, it was a fun read, but by no means a must read.
