Background[ edit ] The book contains several ambigrams created by real-life typographer John Langdon. The book also contains ambigrams of the words Earth , Air , Fire , and Water , which has served to bring the art of ambigrams to public attention by virtue of the popularity of the book. Kohler contacts Robert Langdon, an expert on the Illuminati, who determines that the ambigram is authentic. Kohler calls Vetra's adopted daughter Vittoria home and it is ascertained that the Illuminati — an ancient anti-religious organization thought extinct — have stolen a canister containing antimatter , a substance with destructive potential comparable to a nuclear weapon. When at CERN, the canister is stored in a unique electrical charger which ensures the antimatter's stability, but when removed, its backup battery provides power for 24 hours, after which the antimatter would fall out of suspension and, on coming into contact with the physical matter of the container, explode. The canister is located somewhere in Vatican City , with a security camera in front of it, as its digital clock counts down to an explosion due to occur at midnight, which will wipe out the Vatican. Langdon is initially convinced that the Illuminati cannot be responsible for two reasons: 1 the Illuminati went extinct centuries ago, and their remnants were absorbed into the Freemasons and 2 the Illuminati, as men of scientific truth, would never sanction the murder of a fellow scientist.

Watching the movie before the book is very uncharacteristic of me, but I'm glad that it happened that way in this case.
Reading the book cleared up a lot of unanswered questions for me, and the book was different enough from the movie to keep me gasping out loud at plot twists. For me, I was hooked along for the ride, and even though some might find his twists unbelievable or even predictable, I was just in it for the story and found myself completely absorbed.
I appreciated the facts or "facts" throughout the story that were presented to the reader about the Illuminati, Vatican City, etc. Pretty damn intelligent, resourceful, and witty.
Dan Brown can be pretty witty, too, and I found myself chuckling from time to time.
