Dan Brown grabs you from the get go and drags you along for the ride. Just when you think you can take a breath, he twists the story and you’re headed off in that direction. You travel, you meet people, and you discover secrets centuries old. Excellent book.

this was ok. I read The Da Vinci Code first not realizing it was part of a series and I thought it was better than Angels And Demons. I also thought the hating on catholics was a bit much. otherwise, it was a fun read and a page turner.

Just noticed that I forgot to give an evaluation on this book. In fact, it was terrific - much better than the highly-acclaimed "DaVinci Code".

I think Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons," his first Robert Langdon thriller, was overshadowed by "The Da Vinci Code" but it shouldn't be: this one is edge of your seat action with some really twisted surprises. Highly recommend.

"You proliferate weapons of mass destruction, but it is the Pope who travels the world beseeching leaders to use restraint. You clone living creatures, but it is the church reminding us to consider the moral implications of our actions. You encourage people to interact on phones, video screens, and computers, but it is the church who opens its doors and reminds us to commune in person as we were meant to do. You even murder unborn babies in the name of research that will save lives. Again, it is the church who points out the fallacy of this reasoning." (Brown pg. 381-382)

The branded camerlengo… raving for the world to hear…
The Illuminati Diamond… unveiled in its diabolical genius…
The countdown clock registering the the final twenty minutes of Vatican history…
The drama, however, had only begun.
