the bits about the hypnerotomachia- the mysterious ancient manuscript were fun-but overall it didn't draw nme in as much as I had hoped

(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.
