Harvard symbologist and religious historian, Robert Langdon, is intrigued and somewhat puzzled to find himself peremptorily summoned to CERN, the Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, world's foremost research establishment in ultra high energy particle physics, to assist with a secret internal investigation of the murder of one of their staff. Leonardo Vetra - a brilliant senior physicist, a still-practicing Roman Catholic priest, and the discoverer of a method of creating …

an excellent book written by a creative author that was turned into a horriable movie that hardly follows the origional story.

Similar to THE DA VINCI CODE to be sure, but for my money, this is a far superior thriller.

Well done mystery that kept the reader's attention. The characters were well described and Brown created tension that continued as the protagonist attempted to find keys to the puzzle and stop the Immorata from their goal and from killing the Cardinals who were the popular choices to be the next pope. The plot twist in the later part of the book had me totally surprised and added to the enjoyment.

It seems that I can only review books that everyone should love.  Angels and Demons by Dan Brown is no exception.  From the opening passage about CERN to the sexual innuendo at the end, everything was wonderful.  It is a thought-provoking, entertaining, and thrilling ride.      A classic case of who done it, to how did they do it, to I hope that everything is ok, to I can't believe that just happened.  When you get to the end, you want it to keep going …

I think most people credit Dan Brown with The DaVinci Code, but I definitely liked Angels and Demons more. This was the first Dan Brown book that I read, and it was a lot better than I had expected. Brown sets up each scene spectacularly with a surprising amount of detail and suspense. If you know Dan Brown, the plot may be relatively predictable, but I think it's great nonetheless.      This is a great summer read- definitely captivating and thrilling. I wasn't able …

As a student ofthe humanites, I loved the book. I have to say that I love learning about symbology in works of art and its importance to people and groups throughout history. Dan Brown has really revived the study of iconography in all his books. Anyone wanting to explore the subject more should read: Irwin Panofsky's "Studies in Iconagraphy."

Warning: The book is not like the movie... read the book first, at least. :) Fast-paced novel, with many symbolic references, but easy to understand. Absolutely loved it, but don't take all the "facts" as facts.

Don`t waste your time watching the movie, enjoy the incredible path of imagination. This book is very cool. Just for your help, there is no angel or demon in this fiction, no supernatural creatures. But I bet you will stay in awe with this intelligent story.

I actually liked this better than DaVinci code. It seemed a little easier to follow.

I had a good time reading this novel, but I preferred the Da Vinci Code so far.

Even worse than the Davinci Code.

Solid book. Good story. My only issue with it was the whole particle accelerator explosion part.

Meh - not as fun as DaVinci, but an interesting mix of religion and science.

If you liked The DaVinci Code, then you'll also enjoy Angels and Demons. The book is a good summer read with great plot twists. Dan Brown, the author, perfectly blends the real world with a new world order conspiracy.    Brown introduces the world to the secret society of the Illuminati - a group of scientists long suppressed by the Catholic church. Using real figures from history, he creates a revenge plot hatched over a millennium. The group seems so tied to history that a …

This is Dan Brown's first Robert Landon novel.  Langdon is whisked out of bed and transported around the world to Switzerland to CERN, which is the top scientific research facility in the world.  A scientist has been murdered and a sample of one of his creations has been stolen.  This sample is as powerful as a nuclear powered device and apparently it is in the hands of an ancient cult of which Langdon is an expert.  This is why he was selected to help CERN.   With the help …

I am one of the few people in the known universe that did not read The Da Vinci Code, nor did I see the movie. I actually have no intention of either reading it or seeing it. That being said....    Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, is an easy, rather fast moving story, which, like his other novels, is fiction. Now if you will note the number of reviews on this book (2,151 at this writing) and the trend they set, you can easily come to the conclusion that this is one of those books …

'Angels & Demons' by Dan Brown, writer of the infamous 'The Da Vinci Code' introduces us to the character or Robert Langdon in this suspenseful novel that deal with the Catholic Church, corruption, and intrique. Along the lines of a Michael Crichton book we also get some technology thrown in for good measure dealing with anti-matter and a faaaaaast plane.    One of the main complaints about Dan Brown books is that so much of what he writes is implausible, but I remind reader …

Pros: A great chase around Rome; a good helping of excitement     Cons: Hard to suspend disbelief in some spots; twists can come fast; a few others     The Bottom Line: You’ll be hard pressed to put the book down for the last few hundred pages. …Wish I could go to Rome and do all this myself now.     The first time I heard about the Illuminati, I was watching the Gargoyles series. You know, the animated one? But that’s not important. …
