Angels & Demons was even better than The DaVinci Code. It was full of excitement and kept me turning pages rapidly until the end. The book surpassed the movie so well that it was no comparison. I read dozens of books every month and this was the book that sprung to mind when asked for the best book that I have ever read.

by Joe Mauceri, syndicated book reviewer,
"Angels &Demons is as good as it gets. A pulse-pounding, edge-of-your-seat thriller. Angels &Demons is as compelling as Umberto Eco... as engaging as Tom Clancy... as fast-paced as Michael Crichton... and rivals the best Thomas Harris thriller. Angels & Demons earns Dan Brown a place among these literary peers. "
"Among the best books I have ever read...Angels & Demons is part thriller, part mystery, and all action. A highly entertaining, page-turning thriller." Davina Morgan-Witts, BookBrowse.com
by Kirkus reviews,
"Thrilling Cat-and-Mouse maneuvers...Life-or-death cliff hangers, romance, religion, science, murder, mysticism, architecture, and action. Angels & Demons is a GO!"
"One of the best read we've ever seen... If Tom Clancy and Umberto Eco got fused together, Dan Brown would be the result."
From the #1 "New York Times bestselling author of "The Da Vinci Code comes the first breathless adventure featuring world-renowned symbologist Robert Langdon.
