5/9/2013: I struggled whether to give this 3 or 4 stars. This is very similar to "The Da Vinci Code" but uses the Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam instead of Knights Templar and other esoteric 'symbols' to play off of Christianity.Of course it's because of this similarity that I read this book. If you were offended by "The Da Vinci Code" stay away from this. If not, and find eastern religions interesting, i.e. "Life of Pi", then you will enjoy "The Breath of God".
