  1. I agree with you 100%. It is a fun, easy read, very enjoyable. I had this same argument with my father-in-law when I read it. He is a devout Christian, and he was offended by the book. I said “It is a novel, it is fiction,” but he kept saying that Brown claimed it was factual. (He never actually read it). Great review!

  2. Thanks for this blog. I did give this one a go and while it entertained, I didn’t like how he moved prominent things like architecture of a famous building around for the sake of the story. I have been to the Louvre, for example, and every time he changed a fact to further the story I got thrown out of the plot and annoyed. But that’s just my pet peeve I guess. It wasn’t a favorite book by any means. I did read his other book set in Rome and it entertained me.
    Also I liked the editing of the first section though personally I would have kept the word Caravaggio! I like this alphabet thing. Fun.

    1. I haven’t been to the Louvre myself so didn’t notice, but I can definitely understand why that would hinder your enjoyment of the story. (I’d love to go.) There are definitely some inaccuracies throughout the novel. Angels and Demons was great! I found it harder to get into than this one but a more well-written book in the end x

  3. Yesssss, great post! 👏😄 I read this two years ago and I admit that I found it hard to read sometimes because of the writing style. That aside, the story and plot is so gripping and thrilling it was an amazing read. I agree with you with the controversy, I am a proud Christian but I’m open-minded and I don’t believe everything I read— I understand that this book is a work of fiction.

  4. I actually really like his writing style, I think it fits the genre perfectly, and I love the opening scene. What I can’t stand about his books is the female characters – a bunch of girls with no personality whatsoever who all end up falling for the professor and serve as nothing but sidekicks.

      1. My favourite of his books is honestly Deception Point. It’s the first of his that I read and one of first books I read in English. I think I love it so much because I love anything to do with exploration in the ice and stuff. It’s such a good book! The one I like the least is probably The Lost Symbol. I don’t even remember what it’s about lmao.

  5. Not gonna read this yet because I’m still reading the book but so far I LOVE this book! I think it’s written really well and I find it utterly interesting! I don’t think it’s disrespectful, I think it’s enlightening!

    I’ve read Digital Fortress and love it! Will read this post after I read the book!
