I thought the movie was a bit dry and easy to figure out. It didn't have that "feel" as the first movie did, but it was still good considering...

I liked that book a lot better than the Divinci Code.

I haven't seen either of the movies.

Haven't read either of the books or seen The Da Vinci Code.

I thought the movie was indeed easy to figure out, but fairly entertaining nonetheless.

I have heard that there was a lot more in the book. I am working on a novel atm, but when I finish it then I will get started on Angels and Demons.

Neither of these books was particularly good. Not awful, mind you, but not the sort of thing I would add to my shelf of 'keepers', and definitely not worth reading twice.

I really liked the book; I read it years ago, a couple chapters at a time, when I would go to the Barnes and Nobles at the local mall. Finally I got to the point where the story had nicely wrapped up, there were only like 30 pages left and I was like "Meh, I don't feel like reading 30 pages of 'Yay, we rock!' victory drivvle." Then a year later I came back and saw the book and figured "Why not finish it." OMG. Totally missed the major twist in the story.

My favorite part of the book is the priest's speech on why religion is needed. I actually thought it was really well done.

I'm seeing the movie this Friday and will write about it sometime after.

I gave away "The DaVinci code" after I read it, I only read the other book because a colleague had it with her at work. Finished it in about one hour.

I really didn't like either book, I haven't seen the first movie and I will make sure I will never see this movie either.

I preferred Angels and Demons to the Davinci Code bookwise. I wasnt impressed with the movie Da Vinci Code ( I thought Tom Hanks was an awful pick for the main character) and Im not sure how well I could watch Angels and Demons knowing he's in it again.
