Brown combines spirituality, mystery,art,history,science in a way that it become an international best seller .
I wanted to read this book after my friend kept suggesting me to read it . so I borrowed this book from her and surprised to find out that the story revolves around church , Renaissance painting, its perfectly piloted with twist and shocks and kept reader engaged till last .
This book created a spark in me to read more about Renaissance paontings,sculpture and all those sites places churches which Dan browed depicted in a very beautiful manner . and I was kind of lucky enough because my one main paper is all about Rome and Renaissance and this book inspired me to learn more about it .
Like every book of Dan brown the chapter is short ,cliff hanger , a page turner . you cannt leave it without finishing .What I really loved about this book is how Brown used history , art,symbols,sculpture to twist and plot the scene and linked it with the scert of iilumati hiding place , the four elements how its linked with most famous chruces and monuments of Renaissance period and which aost linked to the famous sculpturist painter who are secretly linked with illuminati. And how our villain uses those spots to make murder more remembrable.
Most intrestingly which I liked about this book is how Dan brwon uses words to depict the whole murder scene which can create goosebumps totally evil and related to four elements.
Though I don’t like some graphics , I think it gives a negative impression of religion like the way he use hassain (Muslim ) and his lust towards girls .
But over and all its a good read but if u want an actual fact with thriller about catholic arena then I would recommend you to read ” The name of Rose by Umberto eco” .
