compared to the masterpieces that is Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons is disappointing (but not absolutely bad!)
'Angles and Demons' is a fantastic fast-paced book to start the Robert Langdon series. From high speed chases to gore, this book has it all (though it's not one you'll be able to put down in a hurry - I read it in 5 days!). Vivid descriptions throughout along with fully developed and interesting characters (even with so many, I connected with them all).
Bin nicht über die ersten 150 Seiten hinaus gekommen, hat mich einfach nicht gepackt.
Um ótimo livro
Gequirlte Scheiße im Quadrat. Und da bin ich noch höflich.
