    Description

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra. Together they embark on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and the most secretive vault on earth, the long-forgotten Illuminati lair.

    A must for fans of The Da Vinci Code

    This was my first book by author Dan Brown and his character Robert Langdon, and I was very happy with it. In this prequel to The Da Vinci Code we are introduced to Mr Langdon, a symbologist, as he is called to CERN to help with the murder of one of their top scientists. He in turn is introduced to the scientist's daughter, Vittoria Vetra, who helps him with the investigation, which takes them to Rome and Vatican City. As can be assumed by this setting, the story has a lot to do with Christianity and it's secrets, and the information is presented very well. It also deals with the Illuminati, and therein lies the intrique.

    The story is a 'page-turner' and keeps you riveted to the very end. While not necessary to read before The Da Vinci Code, it is a prequel, mainly in presenting an earlier 'adventure' of Langdon, an extremely likable main character.

    UNABRIDGED....about time!

    This was an excellent read when I first read it upon its initial release! I was happy when I stumbled upon Audible and found Dan Browns books; however I was saddened that Angels and Demons was only available in the ABRIDGED version. After listening to it I was very disappointed in all that was left out. I an now estatic at being able to listen to the UNABRIDGED version....can't wait!

    A Trip Inside the Vatican

    Although this book is a prequel to <i>The DaVinci Code</i>, also written by Dan Brown, I actually read it afterwards. In the beginning I felt his style of writing was a bit rustier than the smoothness of <i>The DaVinci Code</i>. I also saw a different side of his main character which I didn't really appreciate at first. However, once I got into the book, I actually felt it was faster-paced and more suspenseful than <i>The DaVinci Code</i>.

    The beginning takes you inside CERN and was a bit hard to listen to since they were describing several scientific processes. I had to re-listen a few times to deeply understand. But after the first several chapters the mystery unfolds and the book plays out like a favorite Robert Ludlum novel.

    This is one I actually couldn't stop listening too! The story takes you into the depths of Rome and inside the Vatican, detailing several practices. The journey takes you inside the Vatican Library, into St. Peter's tomb, catacombs, castles, secret passageways, various churches and more.

    Interesting but dissapointing

    I liked the basic premise as much as The Da Vinci Code but Dan Brown went a little overboard in this one.

    I love the way he managed to actually produce a textbook on religious history using a fictional narrative as the vehicle in which to tell it. This is the same thing he did with TDVC.

    There were two things that bothered me about this one that he seems to have grown out of before his next book.

    #1. TOO UNBELIEVABLE. There are two kinds of action heroes. The Superman Type and The Regular guy who is thrust into adventure reluctantly. The Superman type is expected to do outrageous feats and survive unbelievable things. The latter type is much less invulnerable.

    Langdon is the regular guy. It creates a real problem when he keeps walking away from death as he does in this one. There is a certain license that is acceptable in this kind of thing ? it was crossed here big time.

    #2. SILLY CIRCULAR NARRATIVE I don?t know if that?s the right term but here is my own perception of a dialogue passage that thematically occurred at least 6 or 7 times in the story. This is not a quote - just an impression. This would all occur within a two-minute segment probably all on one page in the book

    Roberts last hopes faded
    A new glimmer of hope hit him
    The answer was so clear now that he saw it
    His heart sank when he realized that he was in the wrong place
    Robert smiled and suddenly felt renewed when Vittoria showed him what she had in her hand?
    Then his hopes sank and he knew this was the end when he saw the locked door
    Suddenly he rebounded with new faith when he realized what it meant
    His hopes were dashed when the light went out

    and on and on and on. After the third or fourth go around like this I actually laughed out loud.

    All in all the story was interesting and I loved learning the history but it doesnt seem that Dan had honed his writing skills just yet when he put this one together.

    First rate thriller, with weak writing.

    The bad first. Dan Brown is a pretty bad writer. He overexplains, his characters are constantly amazed or some other cliche expression, many characters are so extreme they seem silly, and his hero seems very unlike a Harvard professor. Also, the constant commentary on the struggle between "religion" and "science" seems overblown.

    But the story is non-stop action and intrigue, and he does a better job of working his "conspiracy theory" stuff into the action in this one than in "The Da Vinci Code." And the plot is strong. You will know right away who the bad guy is, and then you will change your mind a dozen times before the end. Brown has a knack for knowing what you are assuming and using that against you.

    Overall, a thrilling book with a good, though overdone and not original, debate about religion and science, and several hairsbreadth and impossible escapes that will tax credulity. The writing is annoying, but the story survives anyway.

    Not sure why some people think it's so gruesome. He mentions a detached body part or two, but he doesn't go into graphic detail about them. I've got a weak stomach, and wasn't bothered by anything.

    Better in some ways, and worse in others

    Like most people I only became aware of this story after having seen and read The Da Vinci code. This book is very suspenseful and the whodunnit/spoilers in this book beat those of the Da Vinci code. If you got used to his writing in the Da Vinci code, it is kind of annoying to go back to an earlier book where Brown uses a lot of cliche's regarding epiphones that Langdon has. It gets old having things' come to a stunning realization stronger than anything he had ever realized before." I think the cliche part is a little more noticeable because it is in audio form. Fantastic read though, 1000 times better than the movie.

    I couldn't put it down...5 STARS

    After reading some of he reviews I was a bit leery of this book but I am so glad I got it. It was spell binding, tense, action packed and I could not turn it off. I was driving in circles just to hear more! Get this book, you?ll love it!

    Not for those who've already read DaVinci Code...

    While it may true that this book need not be read as a prequel to DaVinci Code, it is almost a carbon-copy of the popular 'sequel' in terms of the storyline, just with different names for all the protagonists, except Robert Langdon of course. The story would probably read well for first-time listeners of Dan Brown, however it didn't quite live up to my expectations after having already read DaVinci Code and loved it for its suspense and brain-teasers (although sometimes a bit transparent) In "Angels", the object of Robert's pursuit is a bit more dramatic than in DaVinci yet I hardly want to care since the story is painfully dumbed down for the reader at several points. Overall, recommended for first-time listeners, not so much for the person looking for something equally or more entertaining than DaVinci and also offering a fresh plot.

    unfortunately bad

    Stephen King could write a laundry list that would be more fun to read than this book. This is a fluff book, I?m supposed to be relaxing and enjoying the ride, don?t make me work for it. Dunno...guess I just couldn?t get into his language. It?s not that the story was awful, it?s his writing style. It kept jerking me away from the character. Too James Bond to be likable, too stilted and frustratingly foreign to sound right being read out loud. Try Stephen King, George R. R. Martin, Lian Hearn, or Orson Scott Card for better.

    YIKES!!! The Book is MUCH Better than the Movie...

    I listened to the book twice before seeing the movie... roughly a year apart. About an hour into the movie I was looking at my watch thinking... OK, this has to happen, then this, then this before we get out of here.

    The book is a clear 5-STARS; the movie is no more than 2-STARS. I'm sure if you haven't seen the movie, you'll like it. If you've read the book, however, you're going to hate the movie. GET THE BOOK - UNABRIDGED. Lastly, Richard Poe was great in reading this book; 5-STARS for him as well.

    spannend und kurzweilig, sehr schön gelesen!

    Als ich das Hörbuch gekauft habe, wusste ich gar nicht was mich erwartet...Jedenfalls war das Buch so spannend, dass ich meine eigene Vorgabe, nur während dem Joggen zu hören sehr schnell über den Haufen geworfen habe.
    Das Buch hat so viele unerwartete Wendungen, dass man bis zur letzten Stunde am Handelsstrang klebt und immer wieder überrascht wird. Der Erzähler hat eine sehr fesselnde und leicht verständliche Stimme! So macht das Zuhören richtig spass!

    Better than 'The Da Vinci Code'

    After having read the 'Da Vinci Code', I thought I would give this one a try. It is a little lengthy in the beginning (like 'Da Vinci Code') but one gets really rewarded after having managed the first 50 pages. The story is quite sound and really captivating and I enjoyed it till the very end.

    ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...

    Diese Rezension bezieht sich nur auf die angebotene Audioqualität.

    Ich finde die halbierte Klangqualität die sehr an eine 70er Jahre Telefonverbindung erinnert sehr ärgerlich!
    Ein Blick in die technischen Daten offenbart:
    Audio: aac, 22050 Hz, stereo, 62 kb/s - Normal wäre: 44100 Hz, stereo, 125 kb/s

    Halbierter Frequenzbereich und halbierte Bitrate, was auch deutlich zu hören ist - und ja, ich habe beim Download "Beste Qualität" ausgewählt.

    Für den vollen Preis finde ich das ziemlich unverschämt, daher nur einen Stern in der Gesamtbewertung.

    The Perfect Mixture: History, Science and Suspense

    This is Robert Langdon's first adventure, before the DaVinci Code and in my opinion much better than the DaVinci Code. The plot is sinister, full of suspense and fast. The whole story takes part in nearly 24 hours. Especially the audio book gives you a kind of real time feeling. The story is again an intelligent mix of science, religion, art, history and crime. The deadly scavenger hunt through Rome is more than enthralling. Additionally the audio book is very well read. Five stars for a 'page turner'.

    Very suspenseful

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was an exciting story, narrating and plot. Very well researched book.

    I find such stories predictable though. I knew, for example, from the first that the Vatican won’t be destroyed and the bomb will be removed just before it explodes. Langdon just doesn’t die, he survives miraculously every threat and attack. But still a great book!

    Eindeutig zweideutig

    Dan Brown verpackt die Frage nach dem Sinn des Lebens in einen Thriller, welcher sicher eine breitere Masse erreicht, als wenn er ein spirituelles Buch schreiben würde. Seine Gegenüberstellung von Wissenschaft und Glauben regt den Leser zum Nachdenken an.
    Aus meiner Sicht wäre es nicht nötig gewesen, die Geschichte soweit ins Surreale abtriften zu lassen um die Message zu vermitteln. Darum "nur" 4 Punkte für die Geschichte.

    Good book, bad reading

    The book seem to be as good as "The Da Vinci code"
    The problem is the over dramatic and the strong english accent speaking italian from Mr. Poe.
    It took my pleasure in hearing it.
