I guess people love secrets, that’s why there are always people (women?) love gossip so much as gossipping gives them opportunities to talk, listen to and pass the secrets on or say, some unofficial information on?
I am definitely one of them My way to enjoy a secret is to read a mystery book which tells a story of secrecy and get myself deeply absorbed into it and see how it had been twisted and then how it’s been unfolded.
That’s why I decided to go for Dan Brown’s books. I am a bit of going insane at the moment as I am actually reading two books of him at the same time. I am reading The Da Vinci Code (a version with extra illustrated photos ) at home and Angels and Demons at the office when I am bored
I’ve seen the movie of The Da Vinci Code. I loved it. But now I know the book is way far better than the movie. Comparing to the movie, the book contains at least three times of information than the movie, and Robert Langdon seems much smarter than he performes in the movie. Don’t get me wrong, Tom Hanks is great but the space for him in the movie is too limited. Movies can’t get audiences to guess what’s going through the characters’s minds and movies can’t tell you every tiny piece of information that has been written in a book.
Well, surprisingly, I have to say that Angels and Demons is even better than The Da Vinci Code. I just have read first 16 chapters and I was so absorbed into it that I forgot all about The Da Vinci Code at all. I just can’t put the book away. Now I feel a bit of pity that I chose reading it at office instead of at home, as apparently the time I could spend in the office is much lesser than that at home. It has to wait
However, I am glad to know that Ron Howard is going to make a movie from this book and Tom Hanks will still be Robert Langdon. Also Naomi Watts is coming on board for the leading actress. I like them both. I am really looking forward to it, but according to the resources, I have to wait till 2009. Okay, be patient.
