I loved this book!!
It's basically the thinking woman's (or man's) "Da Vinci Code."
If you know Latin, art history, or cryptography of any kind you can stay one step ahead of the characters, but it's still really good.

The book starts a little slow and ends a little pat, but a good, easy read. It is a little "Shawshank Redemption" meets the "DaVinci Code". Most of the characters are developed and you care what happens to them in the end. Overall....engaging, entertaining and worth the time.

Fascinating story! People often compare it to The Da Vinci Code, and there are similarities, but I thought it was much more well-written and intellectually stimulating than Dan Brown's book.

I'm sorry but this just was not my cup of tea. I tried it because I adore The Secret History by Donna Tartt, but I simply could not get into this book. Perhaps it was because I couldn't relate to the characters (who were very wealthy/privileged, whereas in The Secret History, the main character was Mr. Everyman), perhaps it was because TWO authors penned this book rather than one, but I was slogging through the first five chapters when I decided to call it quits.

One of the BEST books I've read; difficult to put down once you begin. These two young writers are right up their with Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child!

Reads like a Dan Brown meets Ben Mezrich thriller. Not quite as riveting but entertaining nonetheless.
