Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
2 Stars -Dropped it after 100 pages
I went back and forth, back and forth in terms of what I should do with this book. All of the hype of Dan Brown that went along with the DaVinci Code just did not meet my expectations.
The premise is a good one. The ancient battle of science over creation. One that has led to many deaths during the Enlightenment Period. I was intrigued with the philosophy of the Illuminati. Well that's about as much as the book has to offer.
Sure the insights into the history of Catholicism is interesting. Having been born and raised as Catholic, I could relate to the rigidity of the church. However, I feel that many of the ideals and beliefs shared during the first 100 pages were extremely anti-Catholic, glaringly so...which was annoying.
When does one know when to call it quits? When one is eyeballing their every growing stash of to-be-read books. Usually I like to read a book before I watch the movie, but in this case I think I will just rent the DVD.
