    The Fire by Katherine Neville (PghDragonMan)
    PghDragonMan: Both works feature mystic orders carrying secret information. Both are founded on just enough history to leave you wondering if really could be true.

    The Probability Broach by L. Neil Smith (fulner)
    fulner: The probably broach is a story of government secrecy, and cover ups. Its the story of a adventure so filled with wonder it can only be called Science Fiction. It's a mystery that needs to be solved. You need to read this book

    Darkness Left Undone by Carl Henegan (Alexandria_annex)
    Alexandria_annex: Darkness Left Undone is the second book in a series with Bartender Mike who gets caught up in international intrigue. I found Dan Brown's books and Carl Henegan's books both share similar themes and energy intensities and I like both authors styles very much.… (more)

A fun and fast read -- of course on the silly side, but I found this story actually more plausible than the da vinci code -- it was more coherent, and the set of primarily one location made the whole thing come together better. So, if you want to escape for a while and do not mind lack of logic, this one is for you. ( )

Similar (in a good way) to The Da Vinci Code. ( )
  Henrik_Warne | Dec 13, 2020 |
Definitely better than The DaVinci Code. ( )
  Chica3000 | Dec 11, 2020 |
This is one of the best novels I have ever read. Every time you turn the page, another secret is revealed. Brown left me wondering until the very end who the main antagonist was, and when I found out, I was very surprised. Lots of action and thrills in this novel. I'm definitely going to see the movie. This author must be some kind of genius to put so much together in a way that's easily understood!
The locations are so well described that you sometimes think you are there. Yes, the format is similar to his other works, but thats what makes it good. If you like murder, description, and an all around good time, this is a must read.

I read the book in Greek, the translation was very good. ( )

Romance, religion, science, murder, mysticism, architecture, action. Go!
added by Lemeritus | editKirkus Review (May 1, 2000)
 
Pitting scientific terrorists against the cardinals of Vatican City, this well-plotted if over-the-top thriller is crammed with Vatican intrigue and high-tech drama... Though its premises strain credulity, Brown's tale is laced with twists and shocks that keep the reader wired right up to the last revelation.
