ANGELS & DEMONS ....

now  nyone would say , i keep deviating from the book i start - i found THE TIN DRUM a terribily slow read - even though  its style is captivating and unique . i finally read ANGELS & DEMONS  , by one of my favourite authors (living) Dan Brown.

 I have now been able to form a tab on dan brow - a secret brotherhood , lots of renaissance art , a harvard professor , a non-americano beautiful lady ,  a conspiracy , murders , time hold . ofcourse, his books contain a plethora of information , it is always exciting to read  brown - but this time , evne though , angels and demons is one of his most famous books - i was able to predict the events happening next , - the camerlengo had to be evil .

 i suspect it would have been a  much better read - had i really had all the knowledge of the catholic church , or the painters or was atleast living in rome ...... its definitely informative - dan brown is an itriguing read ..but , i am slightly disappointed after THE DA VINCI CODE -----


still
 one SHOULD read this book.

p.s. wats with the brotherhoods? and the church ? and ofcourse - the "assasins ?" - the albino monk ? now the arab hassasin ???
im probably getting too  old for these books now - i need to read more about life and its experiences and save myself from  murder mysteries ...

p.p.s.  i like the word plays ....

hard to match up to da vinci code...
da vinci code and angels & demons are the only two books of dan brown that i have read...

angels and demons, the book, was much better than angels and demons, the movie...but still i found it kind of gasping for breath in the end.
