really liked it

I saw the movie first, but I don't really remember it. Story was pretty good with concepts I've always been kind of interested in. Liked the few philosophical discussions. Langdon was kind of one-note. Some of the side characters had better development. I think I prefer the movie version of Robert Langdon, but then again it is Tom Hanks. The book was a tad predictable. Some parts felt a little too padded out like the drawn out ending. Didn't care for the journalist sections either. And then those last couple of pages were horribly cheesy, but overall I liked it.
