    "Story is Good, Person Reading Not Great"

    After having listened to The Da Vinci Code I was hoping the same person would be reading the story to us. The person reading this story has a gravelly voice that I don't like and I'm losing interst fast. I'd rather read it myself or wait until the movie comes out so I don't have to hear that unpleasant voice. I give it 3 stars for the story and no stars for the reader.

    "great reader but a bit predictable.."

    The reader is great. I really enjoyed his voice thru the story. The story itself is fairly good. I could not put it down even when I knew who the "Boss- Janus" was. The book's events are not too predictable but a little over half way of the book I was able to tell who the mastermind was even though Mr. Brown tried to throw a couple of plot twist.

    "Exciting Story"

    This is probably the second best book by Dan Brown. It is as exciting as the DaVinci Code and a precursor to that novel. Couldn't turn it off once I got hooked into the story. One of the things that make this story even better is the selection of a great reader. The reader in this does an exceptional job.

    "Are we there yet?"

    Unlike the DaVinci code, I was glad when this book was finally over. During the last 1/3 of the book I kept feeling, can you finally end it, only to find out it went on and on... Although it was an interesting story, it just required too great a suspension of reality to make it reasonable, even with imagination, to listen to.

    "Masterful"

    Despite the narration which I thought could be much better and a little bit of a rocky start to the book, I thought the book was a great. The detail of the symbology and it's relation to the plot was spell-binding, and I didn't want to stop listening once the book kicked into high gear. Let yourself get past the first 45 minutes, and you won't regret it.

    "Better than the Da Vinci Code!"

    I have just come to the worst part of this book: the end!! I could easily have gone for another eighteen hours of listening. Having really enjoyed the da Vinci Code before this one, I fancied another From One Clue To The Next kind of story, but I had not expected anything this exciting: Cern, antimatter, the Vatican, a group called the Illuminati.... fantastic stuff. Just couldn't stop listening, not even late at night in bed! Oh, I wish there was another one like this!

    It's one of those stories you find yourself thinking about when you haven't got time to listen and are supposed to be thinking about something else!!!

    "Enjoyable rubbish"

    A brilliant thriller (if not as good as The Da Vinci Code) with twists, turns and no shortage of tension. Just take the 'facts' and science with a pinch of salt.

    "Imaginative tale with some flaws"

    Dan Brown can certainly create intriguing and fast-paced stories. I enjoyed the Da Vinci Code as an enthralling narrative, but thought the writing poor. Angels and Demons is less clich?-ridden and better written. Both books appear to be based on a lot of historical research, though I'm not able to judge the authenticity. Some of the science in Angels and Demons is far-fetched but, like good science-fiction, is based on the truth. I heard a scientist from CERN on the radio discussing Angels and Demons. which he enjoyed as a story, but reassured listeners that it was a long way off before anti-matter could be carried around in a box.
    Angels and Demons is for the most part a rollicking good story that keeps you listening, but the momentum of the narrative is marred by long passages of quasi-religious speechifying, especially near the end of the book where the speech lasted about half an hour and was frankly boring and spoiled the impact of the final scenes of the book. Pity, as otherwise it's very good.

    "Angels and Demons"

    A Brilliant book full of twist and turns right to the end. Having read The Da Vinci Code first, Dan Browns style does apear to be formulaic but that does not detract from a good story.

    "Forget the film, this is the REAL story!"

    I'm not noted for waxing lyrical about many books, or films, but don't bother about watching the film even if it does have Tom Hanks in it! This is a brilliant reading of an excellent story. Yes, it may all be highly improbable, yes there may be flaws in the details of the story but this is a cracking good way to spend many happy hours.
    Brilliantly narrated (please someone get Richard Poe to narrate the Da Vinci Code - all of it), the story pulls you across Switzerland to Rome and around Rome and many of it's famous sites. keeping you on the edge of your seat isn't the half of it. This is an all action book with no time to pause for breath, let alone a bite to eat.
    So yes buy this version, forget the negative press and the film and just enjoy a darned good, all action story.
