Dan Brown is one of the best and most controversial mystery-thriller writers. In 2000, his novel Angels and Demons was first released and it became a successful bestselling book. Here Robert Langdon makes his first appearance and he will still be the protagonist of another Brown’s works: Da Vinci Code (2003) and The Lost Symbol (2009). The three of them share a lot of common elements: conspiracy theory, secret society, ancient church history, architecture, and symbolism. A movie adaptation based on this book was released in 2009.
It takes guts to write a novel that combines an ancient secret brotherhood ,..., mysterious ambigrams, a plot against the Vatican ,... It takes talent to make that novel anything but ridiculous. Kudos to Dan Brown (Digital Fortress) for achieving the nearly impossible ...
Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is shocked to find proof that the legendary secret society, the Illuminati ... is alive, well, and murderously active. Brilliant physicist Leonardo Vetra has been murdered, his eyes plucked out, and the society's ancient symbol branded upon his chest. His final discovery, antimatter, the most powerful and dangerous energy source known to man, has disappeared ... Langdon and Vittoria, Vetra's daughter and colleague, embark on a frantic hunt through the streets, churches, and catacombs of Rome, following a 400-year-old trail to the lair of the Illuminati, to prevent the incineration of civilization.
... Brown manages to hurl the reader headlong into an almost surreal suspension of disbelief. While the reader might wish for a little more sardonic humor from Langdon, and a little less bombastic philosophizing on the eternal conflict between religion and science, these are less fatal flaws than niggling annoyances ...--Kelly Flynn
