Book review - Angels & Demons

ReviewReviewReviewReviewReview    posted in Multiply.com on Sep 2, '05 6:55 PM

Genre: Mystery & Thrillers
Author:Dan Brown
I haven’t read a good book in ages… Correction. Change that to: I haven’t read a book in ages! And my verdict is; this is worth my time.

A spell-binding tale that takes you to the intricacies of the election of a Pope in the Vatican, the details of the discovery of antimatter, a highly volatile substance by physicists, the dark thoughts and evil mindset of a trained assassin, the race against time by a Harvard professor, Robert Langdon using a 17th century guide in the form of a poem to trace the route to locate a hideout used by an ancient cult called the “Illuminati’. The story works out like a modern day reality TV program that takes you on a treasure-hunt around the Vatican City, except that this case ends up with many corpses, unexpected heroes and villains.

The story has its twists and turns as intricate as the secret underground passages of the Vatican itself. Written by Dan Brown, the author of The Da Vinci Code, the tale finally takes you to a climax and an ending which is largely unexpected but still comes through convincingly as one that deals with the contrasting views between the advocates of science and religion and ends with a compromise between the two entities, after the demises of the main contenders.
