Today in the lunch break, I finished reading Angels & Demons by Dan Brown.
For people who have already read The Da Vinci Code, this book by the same author isn’t really that different. In fact, the structure of both stories and how they are told is pretty much identical.
So, if you liked one of them, it’s sure you’ll like the other.
This book has a bit more suspense and more twists in it, which I found really cool. In The Da Vinci Code, I was able to guess who the bad guy was pretty early in the story, in this book, it’s harder and more complicated.
That’s something I appreciate in books like this, keeping you on the edge of your seat till the very end, thinking of so many different options.
Still, maybe The Da Vinci Code had some cooler ideas and more symbology which makes it just a bit better.
I’m guessing that if The Da Vinci Code movie does well in the box office, a movie for this one will follow closely, and I hope it does.
I really like Dan Brown’s style of writing and am thinking of going for a third book by him soon, maybe Deception Point or Digital Fortress, although I think a reader once told me the latter wasn’t that good.
Anyway, if I were to rate this book, I’d give it a: 8/10.
