I am surprised that so many like this book! The characters are not at all well portrayed (Langdon is some sort of Jack Ryan in a tweed jacket who spouts rough'n'ready platitudes: "I've seen plenty!" "You must be kidding!"). The story is creaking, and contrived. I don't find it a compulsive page turner at all -- I have only kept reading out of a sort of masochistic fascination. I guess it rates a "two" for that, though . . .. Inaccuracies abound, about law enforcement, what embassies can do for fugitive Harvard profs., apparently quite a bit of the conpiracy theory stuff is lifted from dubious web sites. If you want a "smart" mystery thriller, you can do WAY better, folks. I'd suggest starting with "Foucalt's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco.
I am only a few pages in to this book and it already seems to be a mind gripper! If the story doesn't get better, the first sequence is likely to keep you reading throughout. My thanks to Dan Brown for writing an excellent novel.
Well, I suppose I have to give it a 2, because you do want to keep on reading, but what atrociously bad writing! Where was the editor? Someone in my family passed it along to me with a cryptic "Wonder what you'll think of this one?" Incredible number of factual errors, yet the dude can spin a yarn. Have to admit that. Of course, he lifted most of it straight out of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail," but you guys probably know that.
I am right in the middle of the book. I can't believe that I can't put it down.
It is one of the best books I have everread and can't wait to finish it.

By the way im 14
One of the best books I ever read! Very well written, I plan on returning to the Louvre for a double-take!
I loved this book! And I have good news for th others who loved it: it is being made into a movie. Details are few, but it is being directed by Ron Howard and it is rumored that Kate Beckinsale will be playing Sophia and Russell Crowe will be playing Robert Langdon.
A first rate thriller of a book, I couldn't put it down, I am now a fan of Dan Brown
