I really enjoyed this book, although I found it a bit alarming that Mr. Brown seems to believe much of this work of fiction. It was very exciting, and I enjoyed the return of Robert Langdon from Demons and Angels. When all the scandal surrounding this book popped up I watched the movie and could not see what all the fuss was about, but after reading this book I can see where some of it is coming from. While I myself do not feel that there is anything terrible about this books, the details and 'facts' in this book were just close enough to reality to make it easy to confuse fact from fiction, and I can see the problem there. That being said it made for a great read, although I still prefer the first book.
