Publisher's Summary

World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra. Together they embark on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and the most secretive vault on earth, the long-forgotten Illuminati lair.

    "Don't let the stars fool ya, I like this book!"

    I suggest,that you listen to THIS one first before going to the DaVinci Code, I did and found I enjoyed this one MORE.

    The only problem with this book is its the story as Da Vinci Code, exactly the same. But I found the premise for this book better, the beautiful St Peter's Square and the surrounding Vatican a better backdrop and more engrossing story.

    "Suspenseful"

    This one kept me glued to my seat. It was full of suspense throughout even when it ended I wanted more.

    "Better than the Da Vinci Code"

    I like both books but I think this is a better book than the DaVinci Code. It starts out slow but the last half of the book is much more "exciting".

    "Get the abridged version!!!"

    It was a chore to get through the whole book. I was usually 2 steps ahead as the narrator droned on about uninteresting issues. The abridged version may be kinder to the listener. I wasted a few hours listening to drivel unimportant to the plot development. Perhaps the author was getting paid by the page.

    "Two Out of Three"

    The first two parts of this book are terrific! The story moves at "break-neck" speed and is engrossing. The third part is really disappointing. The principle of "the willing suspense of disbelief" is stretched to its limits. The conclusion becomes obvious in the second part and in the third part, the main characters loose all credibility, going from being intelligent, resourceful protagonists to being stupid and helpless. It's worth buying because there is an enthralling book in Parts 1 and 2.

    "Dumb, dumb and dumber"

    A mixture of fact and fiction with neither the Church nor CERN coming off as truthfully presented. Really neither scientists nor clergy are so two dimensional. Readers will be unable to tell the accuracy of the science presented. I don't like stereotyped presentations of any group. I'm sorry I bought this book. And it was tastelessly gory. The Da Vinci Code was better.

    "garbage"

    Those who read The Da Vinci code will have an unmistakable sense of deja vu. As far as plausibility / historical & scientific accuracy is concerned, this is no better than a tabloid.

    "Worst Book Ever"

    The combination of bad writing, poor research, and underdeveloped characters, isn't even the beginning.
    This book is a sad waste, and I'm embarassed that this has become so intensely popular. Some one needs to be held accountable for this atrocity.

    "Read Dan Brown; Don't Listen"

    After reading and getting quite a kick out of this book and "DaVinci Code", I thought it would be fun to listen.

    BIG mistake! Hearing his language really emphasizes the weakness of Brown's writing skills. When reading, you can skip the silly bits and just enjoy the intriguing, if implausible, plots.

    Stick with the books and/or the movies.

    "If you desperately need to kill 20 or so hours..."

    If you desperately need to kill 20 or so hours, and you can't find another book to kill said time, I would give this a shot.

    Other than that... meh. I was kind of shocked at how formulaic the entire book was, as if he patterned the entire opening sequence off of Da Vinci Code. It was basically all down-hill from there.

    One of my biggest complaints is that the concept at the center of the book, this dichotomous 'war' between "Church" and "Science", was pretty base. Felt like I was back in highschool, drinking at a party debating religion with someone.

    He also didn't really develop his characters in meaningful ways.

    From concept to execution, mediocre at best. And I actually recalled enjoying Da Vinci Code. Perhaps I was just younger back then..
