    Interesting Facts

    This book offered good insight on the fact and fiction of the book "Angels & Demons". Not a book you would really want to sit down and read straight through but interesting enough, historically, to pick up every now and then to read a few excerpts.

    "Illuminating Angels and Demons" - the title itself attracts attention of anybody where science and religion -here Christianity- are closely connected. The author name is Simon Cox.

    To say the truth, I bought this book for my husband to read. Once he asked me about secret society or order like the Order of Freemasons. I could not answer properly. The only thing I could remember from Leo Tolstoy's book "War and Peace" that was about real war of 1812 in Tsar's Russia with French Napoleon. In that novel, the ordinary peasant was explaining his understanding of life to the noble gentleman Pierre Bezuhov, who was the member of that society, what life and religion meant for him when they both appeared to be captured and treated not like human beings. This book, I mean, "Illuminating Angels and Demons", contains a lot of information about very famous names and events of different centuries which are cannot be jugded by reading only once. By the way, I did not read the other book with the title reminding this one: "Angels and Devils". They are very much alike and of the same content and the most interesting subjects whenever I read about. I could advice to read them both.

    Great Book

    I don't know how Dan Brown does it! This book was full of non stop action at the same time mystery. It made me question things I belive in at times, but i'm sure that is what kept all of us reading. Dan Brown knows how to capture his readers and keep them reading from the first page to the last page.

    Great Book!

    I'd say this book is the best out of all the Dan Brown books. Angels and Demons leaves you on the edge and you just have to read more. I'm 14 and I'm a big fan. I do advise though that noone under 13 should read it, since at times it's a little intense.
