Welcome to the group based on the book 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. There is a general explanation of the group under the discussion thread Group guidelines. The books of the month (BOTM) that the group is reading are pinned to the top. I hope you will enjoy the group and perhaps join in one or more of the monthly reads. Our February books are The Wind-up Bird Chronicles by Murakami and Of Human Bondage by Maugham. We begin choosing next months books about mid month.
i wouldn't say better than Da Vinci and A&D... it was rate it at par with those 2.. definitely better than Digital Fortress & Deception Point. at some places there was too much of details about the history & myth, but the story comes right back in track... the end was amazing..
don't want to include any spoilers here :P read it and find out :)
PS: did u check whether a paperback is available online? i bought hardcover online and got Da Vinci DVD movie free
