Angels & Demons ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book is amazing. But it is a work of fiction so if your very religious or think the storyline is bogus and your going to read it then dissect it instead of just enjoying the amazing story and plot then just don't bother. It's crazy the amount of people I know that have done just that and not just enjoyed this amazing work of fiction.
Their is a small love interest in the book but romance reader beware it takes a very back seat to the story but for me because the overall story is so good i didn't mind. Great ending.

Da Vinci Code⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I absolutely loved this book. The plot and scenes it creates in your head is amazing and if you’ve been to the places it's even better then. Like Angel and Demons it's a work of FICTION and if your going to over analyse this book then dissect it for all the stuff you think is wrong with it then just don't bother reading it. I loved it. No great romance which is usually a must for me but cos the story's so good I can let it go.

Lost Symbols⭐️⭐️⭐️
Robert is phoned my his very close friend Peter Solomon assistant who is a Mason and very close friend of Robert's. He asks him to come to Washington with a artefact he left in Roberts safe keeping.
Robert come thinking he's presenting at the Capital building but things start going terribly wrong. Peters hand is found in the middle of the main hall with his Masonic ring still on his finger.
Robert and peters sister Katherine join together to find the answer to the artefact left in Roberts safe keeping and the secret map to the lost world kept secret from the world by the Masons.
I did enjoy this book not as much as Angels and Demons or Di Vinci.
At times this book slowed a lot for me especially when you were skipping between different members CIA or Mason brother's and then what Robert/Katherine get up to.
I did feel this book is even more Wikipedia then previous books. I did feel it did at times make some sections boring for me and the end was ok but not eye opening. A little anticlimactic but overall story was good.

I has taken me on/off 2yrs to finish this book first parts are really slow and I feel a lot of the time DB waffled a lot. I usually like the detailed background stuff about historical things like the horses at St Marks sq in Venice but it did feel he went on for ages and could have shorten alt of the internal monologue.
I did eventually finish pretty quickly once I was more then half way through but I didn’t like then ending. It wrapped up everything but the actual problem Langdon has been trying to stop through the whole book.
The DB books are hit or miss with being great or being slow and ok but because of this I keep buying his books
