I just finished this exceptional book and all I can say is WOW. I would probably tell people that read the DaVinci code and enjoyed it that, this is a must read. If you have read neither book start with this one for sure.
The character of Robert Langdon is just extremely multifaceted. It has the characteristics or almost an anti-hero mixed with victim and hey he seems to… well do not want to really reveal too much. The book discusses the topic of science vs religion quite a bit, but makes a wonderful case as to why they really do not have to be at war, but could complement each other.
I would urge you to go and purchase this book asap. If you enjoyed watching any of the Indiana Jones movies, this book will appeal to you for sure.
