World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization — the Illuminati. In a desperate race to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra. Together they embark on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, and deserted cathedrals, and into the depths of the most secretive vault on earth…the long-forgotten Illuminati lair.
A lot of people think Dan Brown is a crappy writer. However I’m a Dan Brown fan for life.
This is his first book in the Robert Langdon series. This book didn’t bring him a lot of success unlike The Da Vinci Code but it’s a good read. It talks about CERN, and a lot of religious stuff. Basically it’s all about the age old argument Science vs Religion. In the end we have to decide which side we believe is the right path.
I like the way Dan Brown didn’t try and persuade the readers his point of view but instead put the evidence and arguments out there for us to make up our minds.
There are times the book gets heavy literally and figuratively; it’s a 600 page book but after your done with it you will find yourself asking for more.
