Book Review: Angels & Demons

Author: Dan Brown

Published: May 2009

Publisher: Pocket Books

Genre: Thriller/Mystery

ISBN: 1-59315-140-3

10/10 (Must read!)

From the American author that brought us The Da Vinci Code comes a tale of mystery, deceit, and religion. Science meets religion and vice versa. When a ancient Scientific cult, that once seemed defunct, puts the Vatican and the Christian religion at risk with antimatter and murder, Robert Langdon and Vittoria Vetra have less than 48 hours to stop the Illuminati and remove the antimatter. There are turns and twists on every page. It’s a heart-pumping and nail-biting ride to see who can reach the top first.

Now, for MY take on it:

I loved it!

I am not one for thrillers that have a lot of action because I don’t even enjoy a lot of action movies. But for some reason, this kept me intrigued. I would read it for hours until I realized 5 hours had gone by without me eating anything! This book throws a curve: You learn about sceience and religion while even questioning your own thoughts on religion. I could put it down and read it in 3 days. I loved it that much! I come from a Pagan background with knowledge of Christian religion (family members) but even upon reading the book, everything I had known about the Christian religion seemed like it was set in stone. After reading Angels and Demons, I took a good look at almost every religion with a different thought process. While some might not agree, every religion has some sort of science embedded into it. You’d think that Dan Brown writes this from his imagination but upon further inspection (thanks to my new best friend Google), you realize he had done his homework and even visited many of the areas mentioned. It was fast-paced and enticing. Deceit and love along with murder and Science, I love it!

I will most likely be adding it to my permanent book shelf for future reads.

Religion is like language or dress. We gravitate toward the practices with which we were raised. In the end, though we are all proclaiming the same thing. That life has meaning. That we are grateful for that created us.
