Reading Angels & Demons by Dan Brown

Angels & Demons featuring Tom Hanks is releasing tomorrow in the U.S.

What better way to prepare for the movie than by reading the book by Dan Brown on which the movie is based.

So, like any cheap desi we checked for a coupon. Found one for 30% off at Border’s and Waldenbooks. The book was priced at $9.99 before discount. After our 30% discount, we got it for $6.99. Nice, na.

Angels & Demons is the prequel to the wildly successful The Da Vinci Code, which was also made into a movie starring, yes, Tom Hanks.

It was in Angels & Demons that Dan Brown first created the character of Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.

The book is the story of Langdon’s adventure in the Vatican City, a year before his visit to the Louvre.

We’ll update this post after we complete reading the book.

    I read the ‘Illustrated version’ of the book almost 3 years ago. It was a great experience. I am planning to get it from my local library and read as much as I can before watching the 10 AM show tomorrow. Responds:

    The first show of Angels & Demons starts at 12:01 AM tonight.

    Most likely, you won’t get the book at any of the libraries. At least, we didn’t. Like any true cheap desi, we checked online at 15 libraries in two counties. Your best bet – Get a 30% Border’s/Waldenbook coupon online & Border’s Rewards card…you can get a new book for $7.

    Check the online catalog of your library if the book is checked out or on the shelves…maybe, you’ll be lucky.

    I read the e-book of angels & demons…the pdf file was available on our LAN…. Responds:

    We’ve read about 100 pages. So far, good.

    Now, we know what an ambigram is!

    did you read Da Vinci code? I found angels & demons better… the film releasing only in US or worldwide? Responds:

    Yes, read Da Vinci Code too. Decent book. Movie was not as gripping.

    Angels & Demons is releasing in the U.S. on Friday.

    Worldwide? We’ve no idea.

    Angels and Demons was almost like davinci code, the plot was same, only that this is scientific. i got bored reading it and left half way.. dan brown cannot think of any other plot…. i hope third book is as good as da vinci code with a different plot.
