Compass Book RatingsIt boasted a fascinating protagonist, a Harvard professor of religious iconography named Robert Langdon, and compelling conspiracy theories. Brown, it seemed, had come out of nowhere. It's major themes are religion versus science, skepticism versus faith, and the hold that powerful people and institutions have over the people they supposedly serve. It introduced the general public to an ages-old secret society, and was a unique entry into the world of conspiracy theory mysteries. Packing the novel with sinister figures worthy of a Medici, Brown sets an explosive pace through a Michelin-perfect Rome. The book received its share of criticism, mainly for its historical inaccuracies presented as fact, a criticism that would carry over into "The Da Vinci Code," which played even more fast and loose with history and religion.
