A Book Report


I just finished reading The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason. When I say just finished, I mean I just tore through it in two days. It is a totally engrossing read the spans history, philosophy, mathematics, the Renaissance, stolen manuscripts and the antics of 4 Princeton seniors. The story primarily revolves around one senior’s thesis – an uncovering of secrets buried in the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a Renaissance text of unknown origins. As the mystery deepens and the ciphers are decrypted, the story gets more involved, more dangerous and more engrossing. I would definitely recommend this one!
