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.

    "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.

    "I want to go back to Rome again"

    I my view, this is the best Dan Brown. I got so frustrated every time I arrived at work and had to stop. Pity I was at Rome before I read the book - now I want to go back to visit the places mentioned in the book.

    "Better as a Read-Only"

    I got pretty wrapped up in listening to this book, ignoring home & husband for some time so I could finish it. Sometimes, it was a hard go...
    I've read the book, and thought it was pretty good, but listening actually seemed to
    emphasize Mr. Brown's rather mediocre writing style. It's a pet peeve of mine
    when writers can't stick to "he said: she said". When Mr. Brown's characters "insisted,"
    "related," or "demanded," I remembered I was listening to a book, one that was perhaps written with a Thesaurus close to hand. I give it 3-stars because it's an interesting story; I
    just didn't much care for the author's intrusive narrative style...

    "Oh dear...."

    After reading all those brilliant reviews I now feel like some kind of freak - I am part way through listening to this book and bored to death! The characters are so two-dimensional and cliched that I just couldn't give a hoot what happens to them. My first Audible failure!

    "Better than the film"

    The film does not really do it credit as much is left out. The book is much better as explains the depths of the plot and gives it credability. However, there is a lot to take in and it is not helped being based in Rome with much in Latin/Italian so this at times makes it confusing hense only 4 stars

    "Good to start"

    Gripped for the first two thirds or so but then I found the conclusion a little too surreal. Quite an entertaining idea, and very well read.

    "4 out of 5, the audio spoilt it!"

    This was absolutly amazing to listen to, so captivating! But my god, what's wrong with the recording? I felt like I was listening to a cassette for the first couple of hours (then I got into it and forgot all about that!). I'd recommend it to anybody, but please audible, get better quality recordings!

    "Excellent"

    Total twaddle from start to finish. Scientifically a load of old cobblers.

    However it is highly entertaining and thrilling. A real 'page turner'. The reader does an excellent job. This is my first audio book from Audible and it has proved to be an excellent introduction.

    If you can put aside daftness of the science I totally recommend it. 18 hours of pure enjoyment.

    "Easy to listen, easy to forget"

    As I am not a native speaker I usually choose "easy", popular books to practice English as a second language. Somehow this book was too easy, too light to my taste. I felt that the whole plot is somehow volatile, artificial, predictible. I am sure that I never want to re-listen it again, but I enjoyed it at first time enough to give 3 from 5.

    "An absolutely excellent read"

    This is an absolutely amazing book, Dan Brown really brings the characters in this books to life and his special writing techniques help take you to the heart of Vatican City along with Robert Langdon and his companions.

    "Angels & Demons"

    If you thought The Da Vinci Code was good then you are not going to be disappointed with this audio version of Dan Brown's Book. This book will keep you wanting to listen to more and more as the plot thickens and twists and turns throughout.
