This was a really good book. It took a little bit longer for me to get into than its prequel (Angels & Demons), but once I did, it was definitely just as much of a page-turner. The fact that Dan Brown uses historical controversies, real pieces of art, and actual locations just makes the book that more interesting. In reading it, I could see where Catholics & Christians could have issues with this book, but I found the controversial issues really furthered the story.
One of the best books I've ever read. Because of this and Angels & Demons, I am currently reading Dan Brown's other two novels and eagerly anticipating the release of Brown's third Robert Langdon novel in September.
I loved every page of the book. The secret societies and codes were what made it so fascinating.
Great, edge-of-your-seat story! I loved all the clues and code deciphering. I didn't want to put this book down. I even read it while I was working...very risky, but it was sooo worth the trouble. The movie was very good, but I think the book was so much better. Read the book if you haven't seen the movie, and you will appreciate the movie so much more when you do see it because you'll have all the extra history and back story.
