"Brown's tale is laced with twists and shocks that keep the reader wired right up to the last revelation." (Publishers Weekly)
"Demons & Angels"
Fantastic, spell binding and compulsive listening as always.
A brilliant thriller (if not as good as The Da Vinci Code) with twists, turns and no shortage of tension. Just take the 'facts' and science with a pinch of salt.
It's one of those stories you find yourself thinking about when you haven't got time to listen and are supposed to be thinking about something else!!!
"Better than the Da Vinci Code!"
I have just come to the worst part of this book: the end!! I could easily have gone for another eighteen hours of listening. Having really enjoyed the da Vinci Code before this one, I fancied another From One Clue To The Next kind of story, but I had not expected anything this exciting: Cern, antimatter, the Vatican, a group called the Illuminati.... fantastic stuff. Just couldn't stop listening, not even late at night in bed! Oh, I wish there was another one like this!
"Well worth a read!!!"
If you are a fan of Dan Brown this book is a must.
Even better than the Da Vinci code keeps you hooked all the whole time....
"Angels and Demons"
A Brilliant book full of twist and turns right to the end. Having read The Da Vinci Code first, Dan Browns style does apear to be formulaic but that does not detract from a good story.
Rattling good read with terrible factual backgound, poor facts and unbelievable action. Everything that makes a good thriller!
Yet again another superb Dan Brown Book, Keeps you glued through the twists and turns, right to the final twist at the end.
"Forget the film, this is the REAL story!"
I'm not noted for waxing lyrical about many books, or films, but don't bother about watching the film even if it does have Tom Hanks in it! This is a brilliant reading of an excellent story. Yes, it may all be highly improbable, yes there may be flaws in the details of the story but this is a cracking good way to spend many happy hours.
Brilliantly narrated (please someone get Richard Poe to narrate the Da Vinci Code - all of it), the story pulls you across Switzerland to Rome and around Rome and many of it's famous sites. keeping you on the edge of your seat isn't the half of it. This is an all action book with no time to pause for breath, let alone a bite to eat.
So yes buy this version, forget the negative press and the film and just enjoy a darned good, all action story.
"Angels and demons"
FANTASTIC, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, this was my first Dan Brown book, now I am hooked, and boy what a twist.
