I bought this book as soon as it was out. Dan Brown is on my favorite writers. I love his books. I love the mystery, the adventures, and how plausible his stories are. For me, his books are a complete escape from reality. This always happens to me: I just get completely sucked up into his stories, that I just forget about the world. It took me less than a week to read these 550 pages and when I finished I felt like I had no idea what to do with my life.
I really enjoyed this one in particular. Because it takes place in cities and places I know so very well and that are really dear to my heart...The story is really well thought. It's complex yet I feel like it could be completely true!
The cover kinda of gives away the location -- Yes, it's Barcelona. I lived there for a while, and I've had so many adventures on that beautiful Catalan city. So yeah, while reading this book I could feel and smell that city, and since Dan Brown's descriptions are always so accurate I almost felt like I was the one living this story. It's a great book. Totally recommend.
