About the author:
Daniel Brown was born on June 22, 1964. He is an American author, who is best known for writing thriller fiction. His books have been converted into 52 languages. Some of his best works which have been adapted as movies include Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code and Inferno.
It takes a lot of guts to write down a proper unique novel that includes an ancient secret brotherhood, Swiss Conseil Européen pour la recherche Nucléaire, mysterious ambigrams, a plot against the The Vatican, a mad man of science in an exceeding chair, particles of matter, jets that can travel 15,000 miles per hour, crafty assassins, a beautiful Italian physicist, and a Harvard professor of religious iconology. It takes talent to create that novel something however ridiculous. Kudos to Dan Brown (Digital Fortress) for achieving the nearly not possible. Langdon and Vittoria, Vetra’s daughter and colleague, embark on a frantic hunt through the streets, churches, and catacombs of Rome, following a 400-year-old trail to the lair of the Illuminati, to prevent the incineration of civilization.
Brown seems as much juggler as an author–there are lots and lots of balls in the air in this novel. yet Brown manages to hurl the reader headlong into a nearly surreal suspension of disbelief. While the reader may want for a touch more sardonic humor from Langdon.
And a touch less tumid expounding on the eternal conflict between faith and science.
These are less fatal flaws than niggling annoyances–readers ought to haven’t any bother skimming past them and immersing themselves in an exceedingly euphemism of a decent read.

FINALLY, when thus so long, I am introduced to the amazing and famous Robert Langdon. Yes, this is my first Dan Brown read. Being told numerous times by my friends (both readers and non-readers) how great Dan Brown’s books are, I finally do it. And I gotta be honest, I didn’t feel it. It’s not like I didn’t like it from the very beginning. I was hooked for 3/4th of the book. All I wanted was to know what happened in the next chapter. With each page, it was intense and thrilling. And there were many moments that fully blew my mind away. One thing I have to say is I frigging commend Dan Brown for doing so much research and getting his facts right. That made the story more realistic and fewer fictional.
The read was going so well until it reached a point where I legit went “ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?!! NOO THIS ISN’T HOW IT SHOULD END?!!” *sigh* I was honestly frustrated when the story took that turn. It was going so well and I was thoroughly enjoying it, but the ending blew it for me. I was genuinely disappointed.
But, do not let this stop you from selecting this book up and giving it a trial.
Most of the people who have read this book loved it. Just because I didn’t like it doesn’t mean you wouldn’t like it too. This isn’t the first time I’m part of a minority 😛 – Jane
Talk about plot twists in Dan Brown books. They will leave you bewildered.
The books are stuffed with such a lot of information, not ordinary but those that will force you to google them and read articles about them. And I literally did that. Angels and demons were the second books I read of Dan Brown though it’s the first in the Robert Langdon series. It’s concerning the centuries-old rift occurring between God and Science.
And this book opens with the murder of a Renowned Physicist, Leonardo Vetra, who is brutally killed & branded with a perfect ambigram of a centuries-old secret society named ”
Langdon finds himself already too deep in the matter to turn back, his adventures begin along with Vetra’s daughter Vittoria. Astonishing discoveries are created, people are murdered and secrets are spilled. This book was a definite page-turner for me. Full with facts, history and in fact Langdon leading the trail there’s never an uninteresting moment. I highly recommend this book to everyone. – Gayatri
