Fun and ridiculous. Exactly what I ordered. I do really enjoy the bits of history and science splattered about these cartoonish adventures. I find myself googling images and looking up all sorts of fascinating things as I read Brown's books. However, in this one, the big reveal at the end, the discovery that Brown promised us would cause the collapse of all the world's religions and stun mankind was, well, not astonishing at all. The world's religions will all be quite fine at the end of all this silliness and we readers are left to question what all the fuss was about. I was entertained, though. Mission accomplished.
