The Rule of Four
The Rule of Four

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring remembrances of the ol' Ivy League days, June 7 2004
This review is from: The Rule of Four (Hardcover)
Interminable passages of undergrad philosophizing and maudlin musings over puppy-love affairs throw sand in the gears of what wants to be a thrilling and erudite mystery. The optimist will sense the book stirring when the authors occasionally return to the (alleged) crux of their story: the deciphering of the inscrutable real-life document, Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, and the fantastic secret it claims to harbor. However, the construct collapses there, as well. Given carte blanche to invent a complex, original, and challenging puzzle, Caldwell and Thomason offer a series of grade-school ciphers or incoherent riddles uncovincingly solved by rapid intuitive leaps, becoming a tedious game of academic name-dropping. 500-year-old mysteries crumble before the razor intellects of four towel-snapping laser tag jockeys. If even our hero can't muster enough excitement over it to dump his self-indulgent, sophomoric girlfriend, why should the reader care?
This has been called 'The DaVinci Code for smart people.' If so, that book must be quite bad. Arturo Perez-Reverte (The Club Dumas), Eco, and even Neal Stephenson are all better alternatives for this sort of thing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tom Cruise is a Huge [failure], April 9 2002
This movies good if you like vampires who talk alot. Personnaly I like vampires who are'nt crybabies. Dracula would'nt feel bad if he had to suck your blood but these guys do. They would cry for days! Whats scarey about that? If you want to see a good vampire movie go watch [another movie]. At least he does'nt ware a dumb blond wig. This has to be the boringest vampire movie ever and its hard to make boring vampire movies IMHO. Tom Cruise should stick to what he does best.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watch out! Nofsreatu is a really old movie!, April 8 2002
Some body told me that I should see this movie because its supposed to br the first Dracula movie and I like vampire movies alot. But this movie is'nt even about Dracula as far as I can tell! For one thing his name is'nt even Dracula its Count Nofsreatu! And he does'nt even wear a cape! And this movie is way too old IMHO. Its like the acters don't even know how to act! Its not evey scarey! Do yourself a faver and watch one of the Newer Dracula movies like Lost Boys or Blade 2. Those movies have lots of aciton and blood that Nofsreatu does'nt have (and their in color, I might add). If you wan't to go to sleep watch this movie! Ill give it 2 stars because theres a vampire in it. Bwa ha ha!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to manaul for vampires!, April 5 2002
I like vampires alot, and there are'nt many books that tell it how it is what its like to be a real vampire, but now I know now that Mr. Romkey wrote this book I vampire! This book tells one all the things you need to know about vampires, like how to like Mozzart and what kind of *wine* to drink! I vampire is definately one of the best vampire books that I read and you should read it too!
