    I love Dan Brown as a writer; he does his research. After reading Divinci Code I traveled to Paris. I will be traveling to Italy soon. Dan Brown takes you to the place and throws you into the story.

    Wonderful book, you feel like you are in the places Brawn wrote about. Fascinating!

  • William Stover

    This book is extremely well-written and enjoyable. So much so that my wife accused me of being engrossed to the point of ignoring everything around me! The narrator is excellent, the ability to speak clearly in English and easily transition to other languages was extraordinary.

    Great read! Twists and turns all through the book. It makes you think about the outcome of our civilization.

  • Donna O\'Neil

    Pure Dan Brown; well written and fast paced. A few loose ends, but not sure if they were me getting lost in intricacies, or they were really there

  • Nicole Rollins

    Overall, a great book.

  • Leonard Calodney

    Not up to the standard of "DaVinci Code." Plot twists not credible. Did enjoy the detailed discussion of Dante and renaissance art. Narrator did an excellent job.
