i think the movie will be entertaining. might not be as good as the book though. i was suprised by how fast i actually read through it. i cant remember the last time i read a book cover to cover without stopping.

I read that book so quickly. It was a gym book. I brought it there.. and i couldn believe how many ppl had it. Its like an accessory.

I read angels and demons on the way to NJ, i thought it was a good book also. My best friend and i are gonna go to Rome next summer and follow the locations from the book.

I cant wait for the movie, ive been to the lourve and im excited to see how close they follow the book

Good book. I read it last year and it was hard to put down. I'm curious to see how the movie turns out. But for those who havent read it yet...read before seeing the movie. I have Angels and Demons but havent read it yet I trust it will be a good read.

you guys make me feel like a retard. lol I havent read a book since 8th grade. Thru out HS and College I did every book report on the books that I've already read. One book I didnt even finish so I made up the ending. hahaha I mean I have to read for textbooks and stuff but never anything that isnt required for school (except BMW mags).

The Da Vinci Code was a much more refined version of Angels and Demons in my opinion. Similar plot and nonstop action. Although I enjoyed both books I Liked the Da Vinci Code more.

Totally agree! I thought Deception Point was a step down from either of those books, and I also thought Digital Fortress wasn't that good (in comparison) at all.

They re-released both of those, when Dan Brown became a hot commodity. Both sold well, but are not anywhere near the caliber of The Da Vinci Code.

read davinci code on the way to japan and angels/demons on the way back, long flights! Amazing books. I read the other two of brown's (fortress and deception point) and they were not as good. This is probably due to the fact that Brown's wife helped ALOT on the first two.

Its funny that the religious right are so against this book and the movie. I found their underlying lesson (especially angels/demons) to be very much pro-religion/spirituality. If the movie stays true to the book it should make everyone happy.

The Da Vinci code is a great book, I'm currently reading Angels & Demons.

I just hope the movie premier doesn't get delayed due to Dan Brown's court battle.
