We all knew A&D was fiction. I just wasn't expecting it to be that fictional.David Fraser
Not your everyday kind of book. Essay type of reading. Started out fascinating but really DRY as I continued on.Dimitra
Honestly, I am a fan of Dan Brown.HUGE fan!When the movie of "the DaVinci code" came out, everyone was so frustrated about the story.When "Angels and Demons" movie came out, the same thing happenned!And these books where EVERYWHERE!!!I didn't enjoy reading it so much because the writing was not that good for me, but I learned a lot, that's for sure!I just get angry because everytime Dan Brown publishes a book, EVERYONE says "oh, that is not true, this is sh*t!!!*laugh*" Well OF COURSE IT IS NOT TRUE! IT IS FICTION!!! SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND READ IT!!! -_-Mike Carey
Ok, so I thought the way he organized this book was dumb. There were things I just wanted to fact check...I didn't want to read a freakin' essay on something random and repeated to find that one speck! But then there was good stuff in it too about the history of Rome which holds a special place in my heart. Viva Italia!Adih Respati
In Angels and Demons: The Papal elections is filled with procedural inaccuracies; The Vatican Secret Archives is probably not that off-limit; One of the scene of the crime is inconsistent with the real map of Italy; The super jet is experience is hoax; last but not least, Brown's prose is inappropriately hiperbolic.But I would read the novel again, three years from now, just for the kick of it.
