Angels and Demons / The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

I chose this edition simply because there was no Angles and Demons. Angels and Demons is similar to Da Vinci Code, but its better. It is more thought-provoking and more entertaining, but the ending is more than absurd.

Overrated. Good entertainment, very fast-paced. If you're looking for substance, look elsewhere. If you're looking for fun, its a good book.

This book lives up to its hype. A fascinating study of friendship, betrayal, and ultimately loyalty. No matter how much people have raved to you about this book, its still better than you anticipate.
