Background[ edit ] The book contains several ambigrams created by real-life typographer John Langdon. The book also contains ambigrams of the words Earth , Air , Fire , and Water , which has served to bring the art of ambigrams to public attention by virtue of the popularity of the book. The canister is located somewhere in Vatican City , with a security camera in front of it, as its digital clock counts down to an explosion due to occur at midnight, which will wipe out the Vatican. Langdon is initially convinced that the Illuminati cannot be responsible for two reasons: 1 the Illuminati went extinct centuries ago, and their remnants were absorbed into the Freemasons and 2 the Illuminati, as men of scientific truth, would never sanction the murder of a fellow scientist. Kohler explains that Vetra might be an exception, as he was also an ordained Catholic priest.

Before I begin my review, I want to preface it by saying a few things. I know a lot of people think Dan Brown is a crappy writer who writes crappy books about crappy stories with crappy characters and crappy, unbelievable plots. I know a lot of people think Dan Brown is one of the best at the "cheese factor" and roll their eyes at his stories.
I know a lot of people out there know more about European history, etc. I loved this book. Every time the action picked up in this book, I had a serious adrenaline rush. My heart raced, my eyes frantically read line after line, and my hands automatically went to my mouth.
I was totally engrossed in the story Dan Brown told, even though I had already seen the movie. Reading the book cleared up a lot of unanswered questions for me, and the book was different enough from the movie to keep me gasping out loud at plot twists. For me, I was hooked along for the ride, and even though some might find his twists unbelievable or even predictable, I was just in it for the story and found myself completely absorbed.
I appreciated the facts or "facts" throughout the story that were presented to the reader about the Illuminati, Vatican City, etc. Pretty damn intelligent, resourceful, and witty. Dan Brown can be pretty witty, too, and I found myself chuckling from time to time. I even enjoyed the general mechanics of this book--I liked the short chapters that kept me coming back for more. They made it easy to fly through the pages. I would look down maybe after a half hour or so into reading and be pages further in the book.
The "dun-dun-dunnn" moments at the end of pretty much each chapter had me flipping, too, even though I could understand how some might find that worthy of an eye-roll or two. My favorite part of the book, besides the adrenaline rushes, was how he bounced from one point of view to another without leaving the reader feeling disoriented. Rather, it had the opposite effect for me, clarifying everything by being able to watch the story unfold from all angles.
Or was The DaVinci Code a one-time deal?
