Dan Brown - The Lost Symbol

This is the fourth book I read of Dan Brown after Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code and Deception Point. I picked this because I like his style of storytelling - something which can be called smart, intelligent thrillers. Stories based on science / beliefs / myths which are not so familiar with, adapted in real life like situation and by the course of the book enlighten the readers along with entertain. When I told my friends I picked this one, many asked me not to expect a lot and said this is boring. Was it ???

Paulo Coelho - Eleven Minutes

In this book Paulo Coelho describes a woman's self discovery through Love and sex. The following article has such references. If you are not ready, see you in a different post.

Paulo Coelho has the gift of telling stories about the things we know and present them as if we are hearing it for the first time, because of the new perspective he present them. He gives it an angle of sacred, special. Eleven Minutes is no different. It is not taking us into a new world, it is showing something that we already know, and he is talking it into a different height, and enlighten us with the dimensions we were blind before.
