Read full description of the books:



It's rare that I neglect to finish a book. I usually do plenty of homework first, choosing books that are highly recommended and/or have subject matter of interest to me.

For this reason, my star-ratings are usually at least a three. I enjoy most of what I read because I'm selective about what I do read.

Perhaps I chose too quickly with this one. I assumed that the Vatican Archives setting would give way to a dense, literary mystery of the Donna Tartt or Ruiz Zafon variety.

Instead, I was treated to a simplistic writing style (think Douglas Preston) that seemed more like a movie script than a novel.

I'm not averse to blood and guts (I do like crime fiction), but the descriptions in the early pages of this book --which include brains blown out, a hanging and a flaying in the first few pages-- seem more for the sake of shock value and cinematic potential than real storytelling.

Character details are dropped in as if the author was filling out a Mad Libs template. (Note: character descriptions and details in and of themselves don't necessarily make for well-developed characters!)

I hate that I'm reviewing something I didn't see to its end, but I couldn't complete this with so many books waiting.

This series is probably to some peoples' tastes, but not mine.

For a better read that involves the Vatican library, see Thomas Gifford's "The Assassini" --action-packed and conspiracy-laden without the dumbing-down.
