The Eight accomplishes what Da Vinci Code aims for - a sweeping, quasi-religious collaboration between historical, supernatural and scientific forces. The novel traces the history of chess, and uses the game as an allegory of sorts for the modern (and anient, and postmodern) world. Not terribly believable, as plotlines go, it is nonetheless a gripping page-turner of a book, a wild ride through history and mystery, from the desert of Algeria to the cobblestone courtyards of Paris.
