    The Taking of Pelham One Two Three by John Godey. Been curious to read this since seeing the 70s movie version, and found that it's been reprinted as a tie-in with the remake of the movie. No idea whether the remake is any good (they usually aren't), but cheers to it for leading to the book being reprinted.

    Did you know he's a portuguese author? I haven't read that one yet, so let me know what you think of it, ok? Oh, and it's Rodrigues.

    :lol: It's ok, no harm's done.

    I read The Seventh Seal by the same author this summer and I enjoyed it. It's no masterpiece, but it was entertaining and the subject is something I'm very interested in, so it appealed even more to me. It's part of a series where the main character is an historian called Tomás Noronha and I think he's the main character in your book too, but I'm not sure. Anyway, let me know what you think of it, ok?

    Will do. And you are correct, Tomas Noronha is the main character in Codex 632.

    In the Bible the number 7 represents PERFECTION (or the state of god the almighty). The number 6 falls short of 7 making number 6 imperfect or in sin state. The number of the beast (the DEVIL) 666 is three times the sinfulness thus those who wears it it, sort of speak, are far, real far from the perfect state of god- or god Himself.
