Elisa told me to read this book, so I figured, why not. It took me a long time to finish reading it even though it's fast paced with lots of twists and turns and adventures in it. But once I focused only on it, it didn't take so long to finish. I really liked it, and enjoyed the way Dan Brown writes. It makes me want to be able to write like this. It's a mixture of science and religion, two things I know very little about, but was still very attracted to the novel. The book takes place before The Da Vinci Code, so if you haven't read either one, read this one first.
