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.

This was my first Dan Brown novel (I must be one of the few people that haven't read the DaVinci Code yet). I enjoyed this, yet it was nothing real special. It had all the familiar pieces to this type of novel. Ancient secret society trying to take down the Catholic church. This did end with a twist that I partially had figured out early on. No major surprises here but we have some decent action to keep it quick paced and enough interesting historical pieces to make it interesting. Worth a read if you're searching for something to take a few days.read more

Well, the world could have come to an end today and I'd have still finishedthat book! Between taking the dog to be groomed, cleaning the living room,and putting up new window coverings, I managed to finish the thing. All Ican say is MY GOD! What a roller coaster ride that was! It was superb!I've already told Frank that if he doesn't read anything else this year,he's got to read this one. Just open it up, get comfortable, and hang onfor the duration.Wow. 5 isn't high enough, is it? LOLread more

Still wondering why I finished this one after putting it down. Boring, frustrating and formulaic.

I enjoyed the concept behing this book, while the writing left something to be desired. It was better than its companion book "The DaVinci Code." The action is hot and heavy at times and non-existant others.

To me, this was better than Davinci Code. Rich in art history with enough modern science to weave a heart-tapping mystery.
