Okay, I am going straight to the point here, I'd like to discuss about the things I like about the story in this book and of course the not so likeable ones.

Things that I like:

1. I appreciate the fact that the author tried as much as possible to describe the intricacy of the walls within Vatican City. It can give you this sense of wanting to be in the holy land.

2. The plot about trying to tie the loosened knot between science and religion giving you a hint of hope that these two can actually be bonded like magnets. In the real world, we do know that there are several factors both entities could not explain.

3. The author tried to dig in to the history of the unknown. Secrets we will never find out, well kept and hidden. If only there were clues.

4. I am pretty sure that this book is fairly popular to the religious and to the practicalist.

Things that make me uneasy about the book:

1. The author seemed to have over described the heroes in the story. He tried to give justice to the main character, trying to point out that he can have both brains and braun. I find this unnecessary if only it is not needed. Like Robert Langdon being some sort of experienced swimmer and super aware about history.

2. The story is rather predictable, that's my opinion though. It is easy to predict who the perpetrator is. I would set a higher standard for books such as this due to the topics being discussed. If this were teenage books, fantasy books, I would have given a little slack with regard to my point of view.
