Angels and Demons

                      An ancient secret brotherhood, a devasting new weapon, an unthinkable target – that’s what this heart racing thriller by Dan Brown is about.
In the CERN Institute of Switzerland, world renowned scientist Leonardo Vetra us found dead, branded with a mysterious symbol on his chest. Meanwhile in Vatican, the College of Cardinals assembles to elect a new Pope, unaware of the fact that somewhere beneath them a disastrous antimatter bomb is counting down to the doom of whole Vatican. Robert Langdon, Religious Icology Professor at the Harvard University, is introduced into the scenario by Maximilian Kohler, director of CERN. In a breathless, adrenaline pumping race against the clock, Langdon, along with Vittoria, adopted daughter of Vetra, has to decipher a labyrinth trail of ancient symbols left behind by those responsible – The Illuminati, an ancient brotherhood of Science. Langdon not only has to save the Vatican and the Churches, but also the 4 kidnapped cardinals from the Illuminati, who were reborn after nearly 4 centuries, to destroy their most hated enemy – the Christian Church, with one last act of terror.
Written in a breathtaking manner, the sudden twists and turns in the story add to the element of surprise present in this book, which makes this an absolute page turner. For the first time in my life, a book – Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, gave me a feeling that the story would wait for no one if I kept the book down. Go for it, if you can stand a heart racing @ 100 kmph!!
