'The Lost Symbol' by Dan Brown, an author of 'Da Vinci Code'..
I was reading the intellectual thriller while eating, drinking, and even walking..
I was so absorbed that I couldn't get away from the story..
My son, Ryan, started writing his diary with dead old Medieval language for not allowing other people or family member to read his.. Tricky & cute idea..
As we see the real heavy dependency of human history on alphabets, symbologist as a job like professor Landon in the novel is really attractive to challenge.. if he or she is smart enough at least like Umberto Eco.. :p
