I haven’t seen any thread discuss this topic and thought it’d be of interest to some to discuss, debate or recommend any books, academic-article/papers or films. I recently finished Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code, and thought it a well-written piece of fiction that kept me fairly engaged; I especially enjoyed the little historical footnotes used by his characters. Also if there are any Trek fans out there, I also recommend Star Trek Voyager: String Theory. I recently finished book 1 and 2 and am starting number 3. Story flows really well and keeps you enthralled.
