Angels and Demons is written by Dan Brown with millions of fans worldwide since its first publication in 2001 by Corgi, and the book is still declared as a best seller. With the still existing clash between religion and science, an ancient secret brotherhood has re-emerged from its long period of silence; this time armed with a devastating new weapon and targeting the unthinkable.
The latest discovery at CERN Institute, Switzerland, which will make the whole of the Physics world turn over a new leaf, leads to its inventor being murdered.
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor and symbologist, is called over to decipher a trail of ancient symbols to defeat the responsible.
I think the best reason for this breathless real-time adventure to be a good read is because all the references to arts, sculptures, architecture and the ancient brotherhood are factual (as are their exact locations) as well as CERN’s latest invention on Antimatter.
