Book Review: Angels and Demons | rstdpp.orgAre his stories far fetched and unbelievable? Are the books poorly researched? Did that stop me from reading this book in a frenzy? Absolutely not!

Angels and Demons Summary
A brilliant page turner for readers who love fast paced storyline and drama. The book has the same protagonist, Robert Langdon who is an iconology professor and is set in in the cobbled street of Europe and the Vatican City. Having read both the books and several others by Dan Brown, I can say that the story grips the attention of the reader very quickly, however since both of the books have similar characters and settings, it can be confusing to differentiate between the storylines after some time. The story is set in CERN One of the biggest physics centers of the world in Geneva, Switzerland where a physicist working on antimatter is killed with the words Illuminati branded on his chest. Antimatter in real life is the most expensive substance and it costs Robert Langdon an iconology professor who is also well known for his studies on illuminati is called on a mission to find the murderer.

It boasted a fascinating protagonist, a Harvard professor of religious iconography named Robert Langdon, and compelling conspiracy theories. Brown, it seemed, had come out of nowhere. It's major themes are religion versus science, skepticism versus faith, and the hold that powerful people and institutions have over the people they supposedly serve. It introduced the general public to an ages-old secret society, and was a unique entry into the world of conspiracy theory mysteries. Packing the novel with sinister figures worthy of a Medici, Brown sets an explosive pace through a Michelin-perfect Rome. The book received its share of criticism, mainly for its historical inaccuracies presented as fact, a criticism that would carry over into "The Da Vinci Code," which played even more fast and loose with history and religion.
