A story about this — 8 years ago
Finished April 29, 2005, just before midnight.
Well, if you’ve read The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, you’ve read it all before. They all start in exactly the same way (someone dies mysteriously, then you introduce the hero and heroine, who are summoned to solve the case, either working together or working from both ends). The plot twists in exactly the same way and you more or less know who must be the “baddie” by the middle of the book.
Nevertheless, this is a nice quick read, even if you’re only reading it to make sure it ends the way you predicted it would. There’s some technical stuff in there that I found pretty interesting, but I’m not sure how accurate it is.
