Robert Langdon, the reputed Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, has been invited by his former student to a precious unveiling. Langdon arrives at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, to hear his student's discovery that will "change the face of science forever".

The evening has been wonderfully organized, with special effects and constant surprises. As Kirsch (student) begins his presentation, providing two of humanity's most sought-after questions, however, it seems that these answers might be lost.

In life-threatening circumstances, Langdon flees Bilbao and works to de-code Kirsch's password and reveal his hard work. He's accompanied by Ambra Vidal, the museum director who helped Kirsch create this marvelous display.

I sped through this book! I read it in less than 24 hours- and I loved it. It's by far my favourite book in the Langdon series and I think it might be yours too. Admittedly, the series had become a little repetitive, but this book really shakes things up. While it shares the main characteristics of a Langdon book, the premise is entirely new.

The plot was constantly evolving, with suspense building up right from the first page. Dan Brown isn't known for his great prose, rather for the entertainment of his plots and the ubiquitous suspense. I'd encourage you to pick up this book to remind you why reading is something you love. Perhaps you like great writing, but this book gives you a peek into the other aspects of successfully conveying a story to an audience.
