i have read both books and they seem to exist in parallel universes... which one came first or do they exist independently and just happen to have a protaginist with the same name and very similar back story?

Angels & Demons is the 1st book. The setting of this book is started 1 year after the story of Angels & Demons. In the first few chapter in DaVinci Code, it briefly mention the event in Angels & Demons and that Langdon and Vittoria are not together anymore.

Why'd they break up again? I kind of forgot.

Hold on, I got the book here...lemme see...well, there's a quote here but it doesn't exactly say why they broke up. Here's the quote, if you want to analyze it:
"As the Citroen accelerated southward across the city, the illuminated profile of the Eiffel Tower appeared, shooting skyward in the distance to the right. Seeing it, Langdon thought of Vittoria, recalling their playful promise a year ago that every six months they would meet again at a different romantic spot on the globe. The Eiffel Tower, Langdon suspected, would have made their list. Sadly, he last kissed Vittoria in a noisy airport in Rome more than a year ago."

But anyway, while we're comparing the Da Vinci Code to Angels & Demons, did anyone hear about the movie they're making of it? Who do you think should be in or involved with it? Here are a few of mine, and please respond with your own.

****
Robert Langdon: Tom Hanks (great in DaVinci)
Vittoria Vetra: Lisa Kudrow

Just for the fun of it, I would change some of your cast.
Vittoria Vetra: Claire Forlani
Camarlengo Carlo Ventresca: Ian McDiarmid
Maximilian Kohler: Phillip Seymour Hoffman (with a little make-up to age him some)
The Hassasin: Jack Black
