I forget who told me about this book, but I read it and loved it. After I read it I gave it to my 15 year old son, who also loved it. The mystery was intriguing. We both liked this book so much, that we went on and read all of the other Dan Brown books. It opened up a whole new genre for us, we have now read some Lincoln Child, The Book of Fate, The last Templar, and many more.
