Angels & Demons
By Dan Brown
The antagonist is Maximilian Kholer and he is drivin to destroy the Vatican because he is in the Illuminati, a group of scientists that is against the church, and he was crippled because when he was young he got sick and his parents wouldn't save him from being crippled. They wouldn't allow doctors to use medicine to heal him. Instead they relied on God to save him. He didn't agree with this and he thought he shouldn't be crippled. I don't think he is satisfied because in the end he gets killed and it ends all of what he was trying to do. I thought it was pointless for him to try to go to the church to kill the Camerelengo since he died for it, but he was also in the Illuminati, so for that reason it could have been justified because he was doing it for a larger reason which was to destroy religion. He is a multifaced character and he has several reasons to cause the problems he caused. In the end, all he wanted was money, and he ended up dying because of it so it didn't justify the means.
