I truly believe that Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons" is written better than his more recent and more famous endeavor of a adventure "The Da Vinci Code".
"Angels and Demons", provides a solid foundation of themes and plot structures (Politics, Science, a beautiful woman..) for his later work..but is far more gruesome, and if possible even more religious than the Opus Dei saturated "Da Vinci Code"
The illustrated version is beautiful, and makes the book far more comprehensive.
Overall I would highly recommend it. It is written coherently for those who have no previous knowledge of the topics introduced. The book moves along smoothly and is therefore easy understand and get sucked right into...
