Angels and Demons - Dan Brown

Category: Books Genre: Historical Fiction / Religious Fiction Author: Dan Brown

Overview and Review of Dan Brown's Angels and Demons.

This book is actually a prequel to Dan Brown's sensational Da Vinci Code. Also, starring Robert Langdon. :)

Like the Da Vinci Code it involves Secret Societies and a one-day time frame. The story basically revolves around the Illuminati and the Roman Catholic Church.

Like Da Vinci Code it possessed a lot of historical facts and this book made me want to visit the Vatican Archives. Curiosity strikes.... I'm sure not anyone can enter the archives.. wew.

I also learned about ambigrams... how amazing to see all "six" ambigrams.. yay.... specially the last ambigram. Wew. Very brilliant *diamond*. Hehe.

The book also takes you to different places in Rome.

They say Dan Brown is poor when it comes to research but basically fact or not... i like the way he weaves his stories. I also like the science and religion coming together where you get to have balance. Got a lot of good "conversation" in the book as well.

If you love adventures + not-so-sure-facts (as wikipedia says) + mystery + secret societies + terrorism + murder + religion + science = well this is the book for you.
