While most guys in the Philippines are reading Dan Brown, and his books becoming a silent fad, I am too busy with other things I've read before - in a way trying to tie ends. To most readers it's no longer a question as to my tastes for books. I alwasy go for the ones that try to attack the philosophical foundations of humanity. Oldschool Sci-fi and fantasy is one, but with faith and theology I try to read up others...
Let me suggest these links for those wanting to read about faith.
Good Links. One is about the resident astrophysicist of The Vatican.
Vatican's Astrophysicist (Hey, he is a Jesuit!)
Besides that, better read up on Dan Brown's primary sources and parallels. Search Gnostic Christiany, The Nag Hammadi Library, and Gnosis.org
Other good ones (for the sci-fi, ethics, and philo fans instead) will be the Philosophy section of the Matrix (over at the movie's official website). And search this: Posthumanism or The Post-Human Manifesto, might make you think beyond what we know now.
