Has anyone read "The Inferno" by Dan brown? Im hesitant to read it as it looks very cliche to the ones Brown has written previously. Although im a big fan of his books Angels and Demons and Deception Point . Amazing read .

Also John Grisham is my another favourite, its just amazing how he puts intense legal cases into amazing stories. Anyone know any good ones that I can read :)

 

 I recommended to read this.... my third best post :P

Read Inferno last summer....was good Ramadhan night read...lol, not really

 

It's okay. It's not the best of his work. It has some high points but overall an average read. I guess one would like it if new to Dan Brown but those who have read other Dan Brown stuff might be a little disappointed.

Fair point.

My interest lies in political books, or anything to do with theology.

Friend of mine send me this list a while back. There are some suggestion in this. Dunno if you like them, but worth a shot. Religion outside history is really not my cup of tea, I wish I can suggest you any better.

Why?

The entire Muslim world reads a book in ramadan? :S

In fact, reading the Quran is considered sawaab ka kaam and ibaadat in ramadan is it not? :S

Confused

I've actually heard a lot of great things about that book!

And being the theology and religious history freak I've become in the past few years, it's been on my 'to read list' for a while

Shall definitely be reading it, not quite sure when though!

But yeah, more like the suggestions I'm looking for

Thanks for that.

I'm strangely not a fan of Reza Aslan. But Karen Armstrong very much so!

I've read both but just not into religion readings and deciphering faith talks these days. I find other subjects that interest me more. May be someday religion excites me and I come back to these accounts... :)

She meant how do you get time to read a book in Ramzan.

But all everyone does do in ramzan is just that, read a book, or verses from a book!

No not necessarily. People do a lot more , for example, having dawatein , itikaaf, go to university, go to work, go to the masjid iftars etc etc. Yes its a busy month so i dont see why are you getting worked up about something I was not even referring to in the first place.

So this is probably of no use to anyone since I don't know if the book is available in English, but the last book I read was called "brother, what are you doing?" (translated title). Basically these were the last words of a Pakistani girl before her brother shot and killed her, and injured her husband, because she chose to marry an afghan. It's a detailed description on how the murder was planned and carried out and how a large portion of the Pakistani community - who didn't even know the girl - were involved.
