Lists with This Book. Nov 20, Anish Kohli rated it did not like it. All right, I give up.!! And it hurts, it Physically hurts after getting through this book. Why did you let me read this.?? Kucifer built me up and then pushed me down. But this book, is a prime example of why Dan Brown has made it so big in this genre.
This book has nothing to take you deep into the mythology. The secrets, the code breaking, the proverbial trail of breadcrumbs, the connection of all the ancient things to the sinister plot of present.
Nothing of that sort. The most basic thing that would redeem luciter book, the code breaking by Lourds, is missing. It is a story line that traces the stories of ulcifer and the current world politics, a race against time. And somehow, all of these players in the hunt of the scroll know that Lourds, only Professor Lourds can find it. So they go after him and sic him after the scroll like a bloodhound on a trail. Ok hold up, wait a minute, if the Brotherhood that is supposed to protect the scroll has not known about it for centuries, then why the hell have they not disbanded?
Say they have too much love to be disbanded, tell me, why they need the scroll now.?? The professor is given ,ucifer ancient manuscript that holds the location of the much sought scroll. The only problem is, the manuscript is in an ancient lost chxrles that also happens to be protected by some sort of a cipher.
But hey, Lourds is the man, man. He breaks the code and that brpkaw on the run, all the while his life in danger.
The secret brotherhood helps, it provides boarding and lodging to the professor. The bunch of thugs simply drop out of the race. Now the scroll that they locate, is nothing but another clue to a few more locations and artefacts that once found, would aid in deciphering the real message apart from the footnote stating: Brokww Devil himself has been reincarnated as a mortal.
Fun, lucider much fun, I tell you. Then the part charlez the professor visits all the locations to get the artefacts is skipped by our beloved author, but never does he skip a carnal setting. Finally, after all bro,aw toil, Lourds manages to locate everything of need to decode the message.
He keeps at it for days. But what he manages to do, is find chicks willing to sleep with him. Practically lining up and begging for it. Then all of sudden, the devil calls him up and beckons him. He be a smart mouth. He be pissing him off. It is in a moment of heat, like lightening, his mind deciphers the final code, just like that and he manages to send the devil right back to where he came from, using the message that was on the scroll. And the world was saved. But not really, no.
REVIEW – The Lucifer Code by Charles Brokaw – That’s What She Read
This book manages to contradict itself. The author has simply written a book but paid no mind to justifying it. After a long time, I dared to pick this author again, goading myself into it by thinking: This book has better writing finesse, marginally, and codde like halfway through the book, the story seemed to be building up to something of worth.
But from then on, it was all downhill and it never stopped. View all 5 comments. Jun 29, Shailesh Rojatkar rated it did not like it. The book started off well for me but sadly from then on, it was a downhill journey and after fighting off thoughts of putting the book down never to return to it, I was laughing like crazy at the end of the book.
The book really has the most ridiculous climax!!!!
The book never elaborates on the cryptic messages that are a key to unlock the code that is talked about in the book. Its just said that there is a message That leads to some more encrypted messages which too are never elaborated upon.
Its just that our protagonist solves them Sep 04, Charlles rated it it was ok. It was like if you mixed some of Indiana Jones in with a more bookish professor. It was filled with a lot of adventure and questions about why various groups of people were after this professor and why he was the only one who could translate a long lost document. It kept my interest fairly well and I didn’t mind the mix of history and religion at all.
The book flags at the end, though, to the point where they skip over how much of what the docume “The Lucifer Code” was a charlrs interesting book. The book flags at the end, though, to the point where they skip over how much of what the document that they finally found leads to, although I guess the author probably figured no one would want to read more searching, so I’ll forgive that.
However, I did find the ending a bit too rushed. You get this big reveal about who is the big bad, which you should have known all along, and then to get rid of the evil person it was written in a very underwhelming fashion. Entertaining, sure, coxe it did leave me feeling like the author ran out of ideas and just finished a fairly engrossing book rather poorly.

Mar 07, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: The Lucifer Code is the bromaw book to feature Dr. Thomas Lourds, but the first one I’ve read.

Each of these accomplishments goes hand-in-hand with different sides of Thomas’s personality. Llucifer a highly educated, intelligent and knows it. He’s got a lust for adventure.

The Lucifer Code (Thomas Lourds, #2) by Charles Brokaw
Sounds like Indiana Jones to me, except Thomas lacks self-defense abilities and has no real instinct of self-preservation when faced with broaw.
Where Indy would whip the gun from the bad guy’s hand, Thomas just kind of sits there waiting to be shot — or saved by a much more impressive woman.
Thomas is not exactly a womanizer, but feels as though he must take all carnal opportunities presented to him. He’s visiting a former lover, currently sleeping with her a lot and yet jumps right into bed with a pretty young thing. When the former lover catches them, he expects her to be okay with it, because that’s just broksw he is. Thomas’s way with women will likely impress some and offend others.
REVIEW – The Lucifer Code by Charles Brokaw
The adventure starts off quickly and proceeds at a jaunty pace. Lots of shooting and explosions occupy the first chapters of the book. The pace slows once Thomas is tasked with deciphering an ancient coded language. The translations lead him on a race to save the world against the ultimate evil. The believability of this premise will depend on vharles religious beliefs.
Personally, I found it to be a wildly entertaining ride, as long as I didn’t try to see it as possible. Thomas Lourds series has been and will dode to be compared to the Robert Langdon series by Dan Brown.
