I had to say that because I've read so many reviews from people who mistook The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and this book as if they were factual history books or written as gospel. Get over it people. It's all fiction.
That said, I have thoroughly enjoyed the Robert Langdon series. It's remarkable how an iconologist has bridged crime, murder and mystery. And I also love how Dan Brown has been able to take a kernel or two of truths to create a fast paced mystery that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Just read them because I'm sure you'll enjoy them as much as I do!

The pace is too fast, it shifts extremely quickly between scenes, feeling more like a blockbuster movie then a novel. While the antogonist is set up brilliantly, many of the other characters have stories that feel like they should have more impact on the story than they do, disappointingly failing to deliver and instead leaving an ending that feels no more than skin deep.
Robert Langdon is stripped off his agency throughout the story and the story failed to interest me in him as a protagonist.
Implausible to say the least, religion, philosophy, noetics and all the traditional sciences thrown into a melting pot and hey presto! the plot. And it all takes place over a ten hour period now that's stretching it...
Good for Washington DC' s tourism though. Will be a long time until I read Inferno
