“Stand tall, smile bright, and let them wonder what secrets making you laugh!” ―Dan Brown.
This book is a crime thriller based on religious facts authored by Dan Brown, an eminent American author who always delineates his fictions in an enticing and mystic tack.
Once we get into this book, it takes the form of a puzzle; at each phase we feel as if our mind is able to create a conclusion for the story-line and at the very next phase it breaks all our assumptions ad turn out to be something else with a absolutely incredible twist.
The book is about a murder case of a priest and a mysterious symbol which portrayed the word illuminati being branded on his chest and a Harvard professor, Robert Langdon is notified to identify the mystic symbol.
However, the book which depicts the contrasting nature of religion and science has a mesmeric story-line. The most notable thing is even though the pages of the book end, the story will never have an end, it is eternal.
It makes us ask a lot of questions to our own self.
It makes us accept the hidden universal truth that may one be born to any religion, one may practice any religion, At the end we all reach at the same point , where one seeks the truth which we consider to be the greatest thing for ourselves.
It is rightly said that “Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.”
So go for it, if you have patience as well as a mind enough to accept the similarities and dissimilarities between scientific facts and religious mysteries.
To understand this fiction you need to follow the author’s path and he will reveal the secrets to you, but the thing is each reader will have a different perception of these secrets.
It was a good page turner for me; I rate this book 4/5.
Hope you have great thrill reading this!!
