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.

    "Da Vinci Code it is NOT!"

    Very disappointing. After a while the book seems to drag on and on. If in Da Vinci Code you are on the edge of your seat, in this book you won't even get to the seat, the auction is simply too slow-moving.

    "Just what you expect."

    If you've read a few Dan Brown novels, this one is just about what you're expecting it to be. There's a really entangled mystery, this time involving the Illuminati. There are some great characters, and a weird one or two, and just when you have it figured out, the plot twists like a rollercoaster from Mars. Then they fall in love. Totally formulaic, totally fun. Great light reading.

    "Great story, Poorly written"

    Poorly written...to the point that I felt bad for english teachers everywhere.
    Just skip to Da Vinci code, same type story that is better written.

    "Just as good as the Da Vinci Code"

    Like the Da Vinci Code, I didn't want to put this book down. I read it in record time and loved every minute of it.

    "Gripping from start to finish"

    After reading the Da Vinci Code I was afraid this would be very similar and redundant - I couldn't have been more wrong! This story is compelling and intriguing from the beginning and keeps you engrossed right thru to the end.

    "Interesting Concept and Excellent Narration"

    I found this book very slow to get into. My husband, who had just finished listening to the book himself, urged me to continue on. I'm glad I did. I found that I could not put this book down. I thought the story line was very original and I liked to hear about all of the history of the Vatican. The narrator did an excellent job, I would like to listen to other books that he has narrated.
    The end of the book slowed down again too. I kept thinking that I was at the end of the book but it continued on. I definitely think that the end could have been about half the length. To add to it, I thought the very last line was highly disappointing.

    "Enjoyed this book"

    I completely enjoyed this book! I couldn't put it down so to speak. It kept my interest throughout. The only thing that I didn't care for was the corny times...overall, I enjoyed the book.

    "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".
