In this series, Robert Langdon will take us through five different adventures and lots of places. They all are filled with adventure, suspense, tight deadline, and dangers. And, the only thing common in all these is Robert Langdon, the main character. The very first book, Angels and Demons, is going to take you through the streets of Rome in search of a deadly time bomb. Then, the second will take you to Paris where you will solve a puzzle. And the third book, my favorite one, will take you to Washington DC solving puzzle after puzzle and hiding from the CIA. And then, Inferno, the fourth one, will make you navigate the streets and plazas of Italy, protecting an object while finding another. Finally, Origin will take you to Barcelona to find a password.

Why do we recommend this book?

I loved all of these books. I really like how the author had mixed history about the places mentioned. It is a really interesting and mystery-filled series. They all have their own interesting and unique plots. Loved this series!!!
