    Angels and Demons

    The follow up to The Da Vinci Code. Doesn't look to shabby.

    The book was great. I hope it lives up to it although I've only read the "code" book and have never seen the movie.

    Angels and Demons is before The Da Vinci Code in the series, it was published in 2000. I read the book and its real good. I am working on Deception Point now.

    The book was a great read but waayyyy too cheesy as far as being believable.

    Yes, it's fiction, but if it's supposed to be grounded in reality Brown failed.

    Digital Fortress is a great Brown read, especially for computer geeks

    Maybe it's me. I enjoyed the book till the end, which was completely unbelievable. It just kind of ruined it for me.

    Maybe what's you?

    That's what I'm saying also.

    Great read, read it many times and will read it again.
    But yes, the ending blows, it is too far out there to be even remotely possible. Doesn't keep me from wanting to read it again but was an easy way out for Brown which ruins the book IMO as well.

    I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one that had a problem with the ending.

    Ruined an otherwise awesome book.

    DaVinci Code is far-fetched but is realistic...it all COULD happen.

    I remember a fall from a helicopter. Worst ending ever.
    When they kick at your front door, how you gonna come? With your hands at your head, or the trigger of your gun?
