Codex by Lev Grossman

About to depart on his first vacation in years, Edward Wozny, a hot-shot young banker, is sent to help one of his firm's most important and mysterious clients. When asked to un-crate and organise a personal library of rare books, Edward's indignation turns to intrigue as he realises that among the volumes there may be hidden a unique medieval codex, a treasure kept sealed away for many years and for many reasons. Edward's intrigue becomes an obsession that only deepens as friends draw him into a peculiar and addictive computer game, as mystifying parallels between the game's virtual reality and the legend of the codex emerge...

Urgh, to say I struggled thru this book would not be a lie. I found it tedious and not in the least interesting. Seriously, even in the end I have little idea of what the point of it was. It was yawn-boring and none of it seemed particularly significant, the story of the Viage, the computer game ... none of it. I seriously would not recommend you bother yourself with this one.
