Pmtselt oli see selline pikemavoitu järelsona ykskoik millisele Dan Browni raamatule.
Alguseveerand oli igavavoitu, eriti kuna sai ysna kiiresti aru, et siin peab purema hakkama päris toorevoitu puutolget.

True, it was in some ways like Da Vinci Code, but still it has many new ideas. Unlike Da Vinci Code, it strengthens belief of people.
