Recommends it for: Lovers of Dan Brown's work.
Dec. 20, 2013. I'm not done with this book. I have been really enjoying the pacing, the characters and the storyline, but was having my usual problems with word usage and sentence structure.

Whatever it was, I picked up the book at every opportunity and finished it in a day.
