I read this ages ago, enjoyed it, but not as much as Da Vinci Code or Deception Point. I have recently moved house to a flat so having to cull my books.

Hope that you enjoyed the book. If you did, please remember to log back in and enter a comment so that I will be alerted that you have read it and passed it on. I really enjoy seeing where my books travel, so please add a comment if you find it.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Released to another bookcrosser. I hope that you enjoy the book and can find the time to register your current ownership of the it here. I love to know what happens to my books when they leave me, infact it is what makes giving my books away for free worthwhile.

You can do this anonymously, but it can be more fun to have an id, as you will then also be able to track books that you have found and follow their paths round the world.

Journal Entry 5 by Shahrun at Dagenham, Essex United Kingdom on Saturday, April 04, 2015
The thing I love about Dan Brown's books is that he makes it so easy to slip into a world of chaos and disorder. Not only easy, but comfortable. I find myself eager to join the characters for a fast paced journey - making many startling discoveries - before being hit with a surprising didn't-quite-see-that-comming ending. The only trouble is, he did make me say 'Really?!' Quite a few times, with some questionable plot points along the way. Now what follows is just my uneducated and unresearched opinion, so I could be wrong. But really?!?!:
- all this happened in 24 hours... Really? Good as they were they managed to research and crack codes in virtually no time at all.
- that flight over from USA to Swizterland in an hour... Really? (Coz I'm fairly sure the flight into Rome was nearly the same length, in the same plane).
- this book was written at the turn of the millennium, and if I'm reading correctly the nun and priest used artificial semination in the 1960s... Really? Were they even doing that then?
- the military took on a 16 year old for two years military service and trained him as a helicopter pilot... Really? Seams an unlikely waste of resources to me.
- Robert Langdon survived that helicopter fall and was able to get up and about nearly minutes after... Really? He was miles up in the air, with a scrap of fabric to break his fall and survived and antimatter explosion. Pushing the bounds of possibility somewhat in my humble opinion.

Then you have the very random and seemingly pointless references to a deceased wife? What on earth was that in aid of?

Also, all the way through I had a strong sense of déjà vu. I know I've not read the book previously or seen the film. But I have read a The Da Vinci Code (5 and a half years ago). My only explanation for my have-I-read-this-before? Feeling must be that this book quite clearly sets a formula/format for all subsequent books in the series. I'm not put off picking them up because there is more than enough mystery and intregue to satisfy me. And they are page turners. Having previously LOVED The Da Vinci Code, I'm off to reacquaint myself with it...

received from Shahrun , thank you

Well i can see why there is a not of negative reviews about this book .
The plot in itself is ok , yes , there is a lot of holes in it , but nothing other thriller writers haven't came up with , what lets this down is the totally ridiculous ending , Langdon falls from 3 miles up in a helicopter holding a piece of tarp , come on , the speed he would have been going would have ripped it fro0m his hands and he would have dead by the time he seen the ground , never mind hitting it.

Taken away Sunday’s BookSwap/BookCrossing meeting by me rainbow3 as I’ve got a travel plan for it. It’s unlikely I’ll read it before a birthday outing & a release occasion occurs, as I’ve read another of Dan Browns novels and I have piles, heaps or actually a positive mountain range of other books I do definitely want to read.
