Codex by Lev Grossman

I finished Codex yesterday. I kept reading because the concept of finding a book from the past had to lead to some kind of decent story, right? Wrong. Even the pseudo-romantic concept that the whole mystery was a ploy to get the main character out of his workaholic world and into a romantic relationship would have worked better than this story-line. In the end the whole plot went no where and the ending wrapped nothing and everything up. It was in a word uneventful, much like the whole book. The story essentially was meaningless and in that sense the ending justified the means. I don't recommend Codex, unfortunately, despite it's promise it simply isn't worth the time to read.
