Brida's one of those Paulo Coelho books that were overshadowed by its brothers and sisters!
Personally, I think it's more interesting than most of his books...
With volume at 10, reality is but a distant memory...

Fave books ko (in no particular Order):

1. The Alchemist by Paul Coelho- inspiring and maganda yung story nito.

2. Magic: The Gathering (Apocalypse cycle; Judgment; and onlaught) - nahook ako sa magic cards noon kaya nagbasa na rin ako ng novels. Ok naman sila. looking for Scourge para malaman ko kabuuan ng nangyari sa Story ng Onslaught cycle.

3. Naermyth - ang galing ni Karen Francisco. Maganda yung kwento nito, nagkaroon ng apocalypse dahil sa mga aswang, kapre, and other mythological creatures.

4. Smallville - Fave ko dati yung TV show nito kaya pati novels bumili rin ako. Maganda yung "whodunnit" and "Dragon"

5. Art of War by Sun Tzu - best strategy book, di lang pang war ito, pwede mo rin i-apply sa business and sa buhay.

6. Thick Face, Black Heart by Chin-Ning Chu - teaches you the art of being thick and black para makatulong sa pagiging successful.

7. Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code b Dan Brown - nakakahook to, pag naumpisahan mo di mo na bibitawan.

8. The Legend of the Five Rings Clan War - First Scroll: the scorpion - 7 book series to sadly, isa lang nabasa ko. maganda rin kwento nito tungkol sya sa empire na may 7 clans na may iba't ibang specialty, sa scorpion is deception. astig din mga Characters dito.

9. The rainmaker by John Grisham - nabasa ko dati to sa bahay ng tita ko nung wala ako magawa, nagustuhan ko sya kasi gusto ko maging lawyer dati.

uumpisahan ko pa lang ngayon yun Lost Symbol ni Dan Brown, sana maganda rin ito.

Ang alam ko 5 out of the 7 books follow the game and give it more of a backstory. Tapos yung books 2 and 4 ata do not cover the game but cover the story of umbrella corp... :mrgreen:
