The DaVinci MANIA!

Not rated

Well, I am sure that all of you have heared of the latest "aristourgima" (greek word for a great piece of art , literature e.t.c) of Dan Brown.
I bought the book last May (when nobody knew it back then) and was amazed to see that within a few months almost everyone had read it.

The story was very well writen and very well set. It is apparent (to me at least) that the author did a very good research prior to writing the book. I loved its 'mystic' atmosphere of the book and the fact that it kept me awake for almost 4 nights!

A book highly commendable to all those who can 'accept' that there may be other explanations for our origin, than those offered by conventional stories (e.g. our parents, the Church and so on).

For those who would like to take it a step further and try to act "Langdon" themselves, there is a great site given by the author, with loads of codes to solve.

Also, towards the end of 2005, the film "The DaVinci Code" will be out! More information can be obtained from

Finally, for those who liked Dan Brown's style, "Angels and Demons" is also a nice book, not as good as DaVinci, though.

The Bourne Supremacy Soundtrack

Not rated

A few days before coming back to the UK, I watched the "Bourne Supremacy", sequel of "Bourne Identity". Overall, it was a rather mediocre adventure. Given that I watched the film from the first row (needless to say I was feeling dizzy all day!) and I had a guy next to me making all sorts of silly comments, I was considering to leave in the middle of the show. What kept me watching, however, was the music. John Powell really did it this time.

So, a few days later, I went to the local store and bought a copy of the OST. Well, the only thing I can say is that listening to the music made me re-live the adventure of the film (however mediocre!).

A good mixture of different types of music. I would highly recommend it to all good appreciators of music!
