    Interesting read. Opened my eyes to a plethora of ethical questions we'll need to answer in the near future about extending human lives. Nanotechnology is going to blow up healthcare as we know it.

    I'm trying to read The Magicians by Lev Grossman, which was touted to me as an "adult Harry Potter". ANd so far it's generally a bore. College students going to classes so far. Not sure how much longer I'm going to go on it.

    Anybody have any suggestions for a book similar to DaVinci Code that is actually good?

    If you are looking for a mystery/thriller, try The Charm School by Nelson DeMille.

    Another thriller - The Alphabet House by Jussi Adler-Olsen
