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.

    "Interesting book, ok writing"

    The story in this book definitely kept my attention. I wanted to know what would happen next. I have to say though, Dan Brown's writing style is only average. I gave this four stars because it was a great story, but the writing left a little to be desired.

    "Jokes on us!"

    Is Dan Brown kidding? This is one the most predictable, ridiculous books ever written. DaVinci code was good read, this is simply a very big, long, waste of time.

    "Yarn to beat Da Vinci Code"

    What a page turner! Keeps you on the edge of your hammock from beginning to end. Complex, mysterious and engrossing!

    "A Nail Biter to the End!"

    While Angels and Demons got off to a slow start and the detours into the reminiscences of the characters were often hard to follow and were distracting from the story line, the story did pick up steam and was positively nail biting to the end. A wonderfully informative, intellectual thriller!

    I am a retired teacher who listens because she is vision impaired and can no longer read. I love history, a touch of fantasy, and mystery!

    "Mystery in Rome"

    We enjoyed this book. It was fun to visit all of the places in Rome that the author had carefully researched. Being catholic it was also interesting to learn more of the pomp and circumstance behind the workings of the vatican. We enjoyed much more than either of his other two books which we listened to.

    "Angels and Demons"

    I thought this book was great. I loved the character of David Langdon and the narrator was just wonderful. I was just disappointed when the book came to an end.

    "Spoiled by DaVinci"

    I was introduced to Dan Brown when I read the DaVinci Code. I thought that was an interesting book which was full of fascinating historical information as well as an effective and substantial plot which, within the world of fiction, was relatively plausible.
    Unfortunately, Angels & Demons is a completely different experience. The trademark Dan Brown "historical scavenger hunt" is thin and easily figured out. Its almost as if Mr. Brown forced this part of the novel to fit the main effort of the book, which seems to be the James Bond style action sequences. The Mission Impossible movies have nothing over this story. The protagonist of the book, Robert Langdon, is portrayed as a college professor, Navy Seal, CIA agent, marathon runner, and Don Juan all rolled into one. Remember that "robot" from the Terminator movies who was made of a space age liquid and indestructable? Well, he couldn't play Robert Langdon in the movie version because he would probably get hurt. This is one of the most implausible plots ever. It really takes away from the story. Dan Brown is definitely a talented author, but this story is not up to par.
    Also, note to Dan Brown: Cell phones don't have dial tones.

    "Well Done"

    One of those stories you can't put down until the end. Really enjoyed it. A few harsh and sexual references the book didn't really need.
