Once when I was on a date I could not. shut. up. about this book. I’m pretty sure my crazy was spewing out of my mouth. Oh well. This book is genius. I love it more than The DaVinci Code. Brown mixes science and fiction so well (while not writing science fiction) you look at life and go, “Well, yeah. Of course you can create matter from nothing. Duh.” I recommend listening to the audiobook if you struggle with other languages because they’re referenced a lot. A lot a lot. But this is a must read no matter the format.
An ancient secret brotherhood. A devastating new weapon of destruction. An unthinkable target. When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to his first assignment to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol — seared into the chest of a murdered physicist — he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati…the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy — the Catholic Church.
