Comment: It took me a while to get into this book. I didn't like this one as much as "Angels & Demons", which was awesome. This story didn't have as much excitement as the other one and Susan Fletcher isn't as interesting as Robert Langdon. When the story developed, I really liked it and at some points I didn't want to put it down. Browns stories are a bit complicated, because he uses a lot of difficult terms, but it was still easy to follow. It turned out to be good after all, something I didn't expect when I started reading.
Rating: 3,5/ 5
