I actually enjoyed the story in this novel. Brown is masterful at creating suspenseful scenes that completely capture you as you are reading. The main character in this book is a continuation of Da Vinci and Angels and Demons but I really think this story is superior. It is engaging and totally creepy at times even if the story is a little silly. How many people are poring over the monuments of D.C. to find all the markings Brown has written about I don’t know but it solidifies that he is convincing if nothing else. A great book for when you have a couple of hours to just read as you won’t want to put it down.
