The da Vinci Code
What an interesting read! Finally, a book that I can finish within 2 days, that spans over 100 chapters (short ones, albeit, but nonetheless lots of pages still), and still give a careful and analytical read. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best thrillers that I have read - well-researched and told with both mystery, humor, irony and tragedy incorporated in it. Dan Brown deftly tells the results of decades of research in a succint, fast-paced and yet detailed story. Undoubtedly, this book bears testimony to why it is a best-seller: a conspiracy theory told as a thriller.
