    other than ittikora, rest of his works were average for me.
    even sugandhi for which he has now bagged the vayalar seemed out of place to me.
    which brings me back to ittikora which could be considered as a writer's desperate attempt to shock the audience anyhow.

    I like the pattern of his writing having a historical segment in parallel with a current story. Other than ittikora and sugandhi he has written only one book called Alpha. More like a short story with explicit content . I liked that as well.

    Ittikora kidu work alle ...i was thinking of reading it again . Kora pannam ...historical link...i loved it .
    Its so nice when you can sit with someone and not have to talk .

    ORIGIN - Dan Brown

    Robert Langdon is back. This time the setting is in Spain. Another one of his 24 hour adventures where, one of Langdon's first students, now a famous tech geek & well-known atheist, invites him & the whole world to a presentation of his at Bilbao's Guggenheim museum, a presentation that is set to startle the world. Just as he is about to, he gets killed on stage... and the cat starts to chase the mouse. Where did we come from? Where are we going? Short on fi(a)ction & heavy on fact, the plot is basically creation vs evolution. Religious Fundamentalism vs Scientific Enlightenment. Zeus & Prometheus were Greek gods who, over time became myths; will a time come when Yehovah & Brahma will turn out to be myths? recently, shashi tharoor had claimed the same, bible, bhagavad & quran should be considered only as myths. this might be brown's most philosophical work which explains the presence of Nietzsche, Blake, Gaudi, Churchill, artificial intelligence, the royal Spanish family & even a Suresh, wow! an Indian in a dan brown novel. Don't expect much of symbolism, puzzles, cryptograms in this one, this one is more of brown's journey into intellectualism.
