View Full Version : DanBrown - Angels & Demons

They had announced recently that a prequel will be made to the DaVinci Code movie and that is based on Dan Brown's other book - Angels & Demons.

I am starting to read that book. It starts off just like the DaVinci code. It still debunks Christianity but this time is more on scientists and if I am not wrong, deals with particle physics (sub-atomic particles, especially anti-matter). If you are into that realm of science, it should be interesting.

Instead of the Priory of Scion, he has the Ilumminati which was apparently a scientist group formed by the scientists who were persecuted by the Church in the olden times when Galileo and Copernicus were telling the world that the sun did not go around the Earth. This annoyed the Catholic church who believed then that the Earth was in the centre of the Universe.

Am still into the early chapters at this point.
Dan Brown had one disclaimer in the book - all the locations he mentioned in the book are real and the Illuminati was real. I guess, it is safe to say that the rest are fiction. ;)

It's quite an interesting read, there a twist in the end which is wholly unexpected... but seems slightly far fetched... Overall a good book

Eve, haven't heard from Kakilang but I will bring it tonight. Either you or Kakilang can have it.

Maybe I will bring the other Dan Brown book - Deception Point as well. One take Angels and the other take Deception Point (though this book is lousy).

Any other books you want? ;)
