Food, life, and fun in my "kampung,"(village), KL (Kuala Lumpur). Did I mention "food?"

The Rule of Four

By Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

I was absolutely exhausted the next day.

Having been up half the night finishing this book, I recommend to anyone who loves the mystery/mystical genre.

Tom Sullivan and his friend Paul Harris are researching a mysterious renaissance love story called the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili.

Tom and Paul are students at Princeton and the reader enters the story at a point when Tom is no longer researching the book with Paul. Tom actually narrates the entire story as we look on and the book and all the action actually revolves mostly around Paul. The Hypnerotomachia Poliphili or "Struggle for love in a dream" is a romance novel which places Poliphilo the protagonist, in a dream searching for his beloved.

However, while it appears to be romance novel, there is a school of thought that the book actually contains a message of some kind encrypted into it's text. And on that premise, Tom & Paul and all their friends are involved in an adventure which skips back and forth in time but pretty much remains on the Princeton campus where the main action takes place.

Get this book!
