ORIGINS : DAN BROWN

BOOK REVIEW – AJITH THOMAS

 

ORIGINS

Genre: Fictional, Thriller

Author: Dan Brown

If you are a fan of the Celebrated Harvard Professor Robert Langdon (Fictional), who has been immortalized into the world of words and letter by the Enigmatic writer Dan Brown, then Origins is a book that is sure to satisfy that primal instinct of book reading. A sure treat for the bibliophile in you, Origins is the latest book in the Robert Langdon series by Dan Brown. The book catapults you into the ancient world of mysticism and knowledge where symbols speak a language that modern emoticons will not. The book follows the usual trend seen in all of the Robert Langdon series of books a delicate mix of fact and fiction and a thought provoking end that will leave your brain more immersed in a paradoxical world that even the Avengers Infinity war cannot compete with. The villain as always does follow a rather predictable pattern if you have read all of the book written by Dan Brown, but there is a twist that will catch you by surprise. Anyone who has the time to sit down and read this book better buckle up for a plethora of knowledge and twists that this book has to offer.

 

 The Count of Monte Cristo

Genre: Thriller, Adventure, Fictional

Author: Dan Brown

A must read classic, this book focuses on one thing and one thing only, “Revenge”. The plot of the book revolves around a young captain who was wrongly accused and sent to prison due to the greedy ambitions of three people. The young man then spends 14 years in an Island prison where he learns about a treasure of immense value. Armed with the knowledge of the treasure and immense wisdom gained from a prison mate the young man plots a daring escape which he barely gets out alive. He then retrieves the treasure and becomes extremely rich and powerful and hunts down the ones who have wronged him and return a revenge so complex that those who are at the receiving end of the blade of karma can’t believe it to be true. The book is fairly large so don’t expect you can hunker down and finish it in a day. The book shows the treachery of people, the loyalty of friends and the illusion that the power of money creates. In the end the book does make justice to the saying “Revenge is a dish best served cold”.

 

Burned Beyond Recognition

Genre: Thriller, Detective, Fictional

Author: Ridley Pearson

 

“The toilets and sinks melted, a sudden flow of bubbling porcelain, running like lava, Dorothy Enwright was dead with in the first 20 seconds of the burn”. Well that burns a pretty horrific image into the minds of the reader as they ruffle through the first 2 pages of the book. Burned beyond recognition is a fictional detective novel which follows the investigation of a detective who is after a serial arsonist. The police department is baffled as to what material is used as the accelerant for the fuel as they have never seen a fire that burns so hot that it vaporizes water before it even touches it. The main protagonist has to deal with pressure mounting on him as he is unable to nab the killer and find his pattern and family drama which makes him break down mentally. Just who is the killer, and what is this mysterious fuel that is used. Well you will have to read the book to find out and it proves to be a heck of a ride through the pages.
