I read this book because a couple of friends from church were reading it. Not my type of book. I'm not into crime or mystery. And that's what this is all about, no matter how many allusions are made about the Catholic church. But I think even if I would enjoy this kind of writing, his style isn't very appealing and his clues are rather too easily found by his characters. What a waste of time. Needless to say, this was my first and will be my last Dan Brown book.
Apparently, the author is at the top of the Oxfam chart for most donated books which says it all, I think.
