I stacked my Inferno at the back of my shelf. Its been a while. I only read Da Vinci Code. Its intriguing and pulls you in.

My personal favourite is angels and demons. I love his works. Inferno was a bit disappointing though.

I've read The DaVinci Code, Angels and Demons and Deception Point. I loved the whole historical background info in The DaVinci Code (I know it's not based in facts but I found it intriguing none the less). Angels and Demons was the most gripping one, I could not put it down! I liked Deception Point when I read it, but I actually can't remember much of the book now several years later. My parents have a few of his other books, maybe I'll read them at some point.

I liked Deception point best. The Langdon series is just a tad too controversial for my taste.

I probably enjoyed Deception Point most. I preferred Angels and Demons to DaVinci Code, but that was more because the latter had so much publicity about it when it was released and, I'm sorry to say, I didn't feel it lived up to the hype. I mean, it was interesting, but not his best attempt at writing.

The Code was the best for me- well researched and well written and very engaging. I plan to read Angels and Demons next.

I preferred Deception Point & Digital Fortress. I enjoyed the 1st two Langdon books but not enough to pique my interest in the last two.

I always loved Angels and Deamons, however, Inferno was incredibly well done. I like that the plot was a little more thought provoking. Can't wait to see the movie!

Ah, it's so hard to choose. I loved all his books. But I have to agree with MarisaRose, Inferno left me a lot to think about and until this day I still think about it :) I'm also really excited to see the movie, it looks like it will be awesome!

Inferno is most definitely my favorite novel by Dan Brown. From the plot to the writing style, cover to cover, I love that book. It makes you stop and think about the world surrounding us now and what the best thing for the human species and the planet would be.

I was extremely disappointed with the movie, though, and I had to finally walk out near the end when it turned into explosions and under-water fighting. Hollywood completely destroyed the movie, changing not only minor details, such as hair color, but also they made massive plot changes, distorting the entire message of the novel. I understand that many people would have been outraged seeing the original plot of the book on-screen, but sometimes we need to face issues head-on instead of ignoring them and turning them into nonsensical love stories and explosions.

I think it's a toss up between "Angels and Demons" and "The DA Vinci Code".
