I think the way Dan Brown works is really amazing. While you are reading a story, all the information that you read about cults, rituals, historic events and monuments are true and accurate. This book has a great story, is told in a superb way and is much better than the movie.

This is the first book by Mr. Brown that I have read. I was fascinated by this book from the very beginning. This book is full of twists and turns with a few puzzles tossed in. You will have finished this book without realizing you've spent all evening. This is not a book you want to pass up.

An Interesting Read
I only read this book because of the controversy surrounding it. I wanted to know what all the noise was about, so i did'nt expect to enjoy it as much as I did. It made you think about the possiblity of some things where religion is concerned. This book holds your attention from the very begining......

Very Interesting Book
I didn't think I would enjoy this book due to the involvement of religion but I thoroughly did. The problem solving in the book is excellent and I really liked the main character Langdon. A good read indeed!
