Brown seems as much juggler as author--there are lots and lots of balls in the air in this novel, yet Brown manages to hurl the reader headlong into an almost surreal suspension of disbelief.
While the reader might wish for a little more sardonic humor from Langdon, and a little less bombastic philosophizing on the eternal conflict between religion and science, these are less fatal flaws than niggling annoyances--readers should have no trouble skimming past them and immersing themselves in a heck of a good read.
Dan Brown's Angels and Demons is a fast-paced detective drama that combines science, art, religion, and murder.

 Language Log: Renowned author Dan Brown staggered through his formulaic opening sentence
I promised to supply here from time to time a few more of the points about Dan Brown's writing that I didn't have space to talk about in the article I contributed to Secrets of Angels and Demons.
It is truly strange that Dan Brown began his first novel with exactly the same construction that made the opening of his better-known The Da Vinci Code so weird.
I can be quite precise about the description of that construction: an occupational term is used with no determiner as a bare role NP premodifier of a proper name.
