Codex

by Lev Grossman

If you like mysteries, history, lost manuscripts, computer games, libraries, puzzles, then this is the book for you. There's something for everyone. I'm a sucker for medieval mysteries so I was hooked from the start but this one is also bang up to date. Geeks of the world start reading, this one is for you.

There was a sweeping view of the river valley below them. Edward turned to look downstream, where a bridge supported by two stone towers crossed between the two steep banks, silhouetted against the bright silvery water. Tiny cars zipped across it at irregular intervals. An icy shock of recognition ran through him. All of a sudden he knew where he was, but it was somewhere he couldn't be, because it was somewhere that wasn't real. He stood stock-still.

'My God,' he said, half to himself. 'My God. This is part of the game.'
