i enjoy the books by Steve Barry. They are quick reads, with lots of interesting historical details. This one is no exception. I also learned a lot about sightings of the Virgin Mary by other than the children at Fatima.

Sort of weak, I suppose if you're into the religion thing it may work for you. When the good guys are that good, and the bad guys that bad, it might as well be a cartoon.

I am not sure how to describe this book. There were slow moving times as well as quick, page-turning events. The pace increased toward the end.

The novel has an interesting concept. The Vatican archives are a wealth of information available to a select few and may well contain information that would drastically change our understanding of history, so I appreciated the usage in the book.

I had difficulty really falling into this book. Much of the plot seems to require a bit of faith to get behind. If you don't believe in God or Marian apparitions then the plot may be a little difficult to buy. Unlike the Da Vinci Code which dealt with something a bit more logical, in my opinion, this story revolved around something that could only be true for the faithful,

I did like the historical information and the details about Vatican life. Even for a non-believer that lifestyle is interesting to me. I liked the writing style as well. The author is descriptive without being overbearing and, even though I had trouble getting into the plot, created a story with well developed characters that kept me interested enough to finish.

I wish I could say more about this book, but I thought it was simply okay. Quite average in all regards

Inside the Vatican there was no religious freedom.
