Synopsis

The explosive international thriller from Dan Brown, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code.

An ancient secret brotherhood. A devastating new weapon of destruction.

When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol -- seared into the chest of a murdered physicist -- he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati...the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy -- the Catholic Church.

Langdon's worst fears are confirmed on the eve of the Vatican's holy conclave, when a messenger of the Illuminati announces they have hidden an unstoppable time bomb at the very heart of Vatican City. With the countdown under way, Langdon jets to Rome to join forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to assist the Vatican in a desperate bid for survival.

Embarking on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that snakes across Rome toward the long-forgotten Illuminati lair...a clandestine location that contains the only hope for Vatican salvation.

An explosive international thriller, Angels & Demons careens from enlightening epiphanies to dark truths as the battle between science and religion turns to war.

Although the book is over 550 pages, the events take place in a 24-hour period which makes this a fast paced book. I love this book because it is primarily set in Rome – and Rome is my second favorite city in the world.

...the novel, while perhaps not intellectually exciting, is certainly an excellent thriller. I read the 571 page book in about 3 days, and that is reading with some serious attention, not racing. I kept wanting to know what would happen next...

While some judicious editing might have made it a tighter and more focused novel, Angels & Demons is still a highly enjoyable read. For those who love plot-driven novels, and for those who love thrillers and mysteries full of strange bits of information that tie everything together, grab a copy of Angels & Demons...

I like Robert Langdon. I find him interesting as a character although he's not the most developed. He has this likable quality about him that I can't put my finger on. I cheer him on throughout the book and wait for the Mickey Mouse watch to save his life.
