Angels and Demons by Dan Brown [Review]

Sunday, April 24, 2016

First of all I wanted to apologize for the lack of updates. Lately I've been so busy with school and exams that I really didn't have the chance to do something about it.

Angels and demons is a book full of mystery, history and adventure. The story tells the adventures of Robert Langdon, a Simbology Teacher, across Europe, where he is trying to chase the old anti-Catholic group, known as "The Illuminati". Along with this, he is also trying to find specific locations where four of the Cardinals were hidden and threaten to death.

Then we have Victoria Vetra, creator of an unimaginable source of power (Production of antimatter) that could cause a catastrophe if used in all the wrong ways. But, from another point of view, it could also solve the world's energy problems, which would eventually led to an increasing of the quality of life.
The antimatter case is eventually stolen and Leonardo is killed, leading his daughter, Victoria, to search for the capsule before the battery run out. (That would turn the antimatter in something unstable and catastrophic).
As for the characters, I found them particularly interesting. Not too much and boring, nor flat. They were in that level of simplicity that makes a character exciting and enjoyable. Another point that I think that should be mentioned, is the war between science and religion. They both have an important job in this book and the author highlights it with several passages, for example, camerlengo's speech.
Personally, I think that this is one of the best books that I ever read, specially due to the historical facts behind it.
Final Rating: 5/5

  1. Do you prefer the "Robert Langdon" books or the others?

    1. I personally prefer the Robert Landgon saga. Those stories are more about religion, while the other ones are about culture and scientific facts. Thus they are very different type of stories. I like them both, but I prefer the RL ones.
