Yet again another superb Dan Brown Book, Keeps you glued through the twists and turns, right to the final twist at the end.
"Angels and demons"
FANTASTIC, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, this was my first Dan Brown book, now I am hooked, and boy what a twist.
I liked that you not only read a great and gripping story but also learn about history and the church, which is a great addition.
Obviously Robert Langdon was my favourite character as he is the protagonist. He is smart and knowledgeable and tries to save everyone without trying to be a hero, which is very likeable.
Richard Poe's performance was great and made it possible to follow the story and the emotions. It made it easy to listen.
There were several moments, when Robert Langdon solved the next riddle and as a listener you could feel the rush of relief coming with this.
I loved all the twist in the plot and all the exciting characters in this story.
"very clever but equally far fetched."
Very typical of the author, labyrinthine plot and enjoyable settings, big deal and apocalyptic action sequences. Extremely far fetched mind you. The narrator was great when using his own accent but Australian and English were caricature rather than character. All in all I enjoyed it more than I liked it... go figure!
"I always love Dan Brown's books. "
this one, like others, was very captivating. makes you get hooked on to the story. every time a when you think you know tge the plot, a new twist appears. only reason i didn't give full 5 stars was due to the end. it could have been a little shorter. i repeat, a little. but still exciting till the end.Love it. now on to the next book :)
enjoyed the book kept me wanting to know more. the narration very good and clear.
only one critisium is that dan brown writings and scene setting can be quite long winded
"Would rate 8/8 m8."
Bit cringe cos de relationship of Langdon and vixcy but overall nice. good story . Regards to the log book, but the emergency services to help you with the latest news.
"Every bit as good as the Da Vinci Code"
A well explained thriller told at a good pace with just enough fact to make the whole narrative credible.
Although written as the first of the Robert Langdon series of books, it lacks for nothing, is as equally well written, and provides as much substance & enjoyment as its rather more famous sequel, the Da Vinci Code.
The style of Dan Browns writing presents the story almost like a screen play, making it very easy to visualise, and to move through simultaneous scenarios. Whilst the printed book provides illustrations of the reversible symbols referred to in the story, I would strongly recommend that you seek these images out on-line when listening, as it will definitely improve your understanding, and they are absolutely amazing to see.
Whilst there is a hint of potential romance running through the story, it is really the smart combination of broad historical fact and unsubstantiated conspiracy theories that keeps you hooked. This not only provides a little controversy, but is often thought provoking enough to encourage further investigation into the subject.
If you've ever fallen in love with the City of Rome, and you thoroughly enjoy a narrative with a great blend of fact and fiction, then this story will provide you with a darn good yarn. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
"Angels and Demons"
Bought this book as I liked the film, but this is on a different planet. fantastic from start to finish!
