As with Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code; Dan Brown weaves a tale using clues hidden in and around famous literature, artwork and architecture. I found the story more interesting than his most recent: The Lost Symbol, but not nearly as engrossing as The Da Vinci Code. But if you are looking for a story that will entertain you, teach you some interesting history, and leave you mostly-guessing to the very end – try this one! Grab a cup of cappuccino (or a nice merlot,) enjoy a great pasta dinner, and then pick up this book to enjoy during your carbohydrate crash! And if you have a computer or tablet –keep it handy so you can take a peek at the venues and other works it references.
And don’t forget that the library currently has a Quickread copy of this title as well as more copies available for regular hold. We can also help you find a great pasta recipe if you want to try something slightly more authentic than boxed pasta and sauce from a jar J
