I've read all 4 of his before The Lost Symbol and yeah, I think I enjoyed Angels and Demons more at the time. But the Da Vinci code was the one everybody raved about.
I found Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" quite a good read. The underlying message of the book, "never believe what you are taught", is very correct. And Dan Brown fulfilled an important mission by publishing this book. From a literary point of view I didn't find his writing sophisticated enough to label this book a "good book". "Angels and Demons" I found quite ghastly and morbid. I can't say I liked it.
