Having read, Da Vinci Code, before this, you can tell that Angels and Demons is his freshman work. It is good, but Da Vinci Code is a a lot better.

A story of a first generation Chinese American woman coming to terms with her mother and heredity. I didn't like it as much as

Original story, but a little forced at times. The literary humor is fantastic and the action isn't too bad either.
