I like the way Brown crafts his text to make it somewhat interesting to readers. I thought Angels & Demons was so much better than the first one, but I really liked the Grail theme in the first book (of course, I love anything that has to do with finding the Holy Grail e.g. Third Indiana Jones Movie
). I don't think the movie was as good as it should have been, and I'm hoping A&D will be better put together.
Having said that, I do think that Brown could have turned up his writing a little because I got the sense of adventure that his slipped in there, but it was very weak, and that's what I like in a good book.
