Enjoyed the book and the audio performance. A good thriller/mystery, once again featuring Symbologist Robert Langdon. Can't help but feel a little plot re-tread, but Brown does this sort of thing well--and is well-researched.
I don't know why has become fashionable to claim that Dan Brown writes poorly. To me his prose is clear and strong and generates colorfull pictures of the characters and places. The story is gripping, and fast paced - even with the flashbacks and all the mini lectures that is part of Dan Brown's style. It does go to extremes in many ways but I find that facinating.
It was still worth the read. It was somewhat predictible, and very far fetched to think that all that action could happen in one 24 hour period. It was a good fantasy laden with thought-provoking facts and action. I think Robert Langdon needs to take a sabbatical and Dan Brown should find another story line to pick up for the next go round.
I expected it to be a thriller but it turns out to be a normal book, expected motre from Dan brown
Love Dan Brown. Read it thoightfully. There is alot to this book and to his theories. I think his book are a gift for the open minded, thoughtful intellect.
I am just curious what all these other reviewers were expecting. I enjoyed it. It was worth my credit. If you liked the Code and A and D, you will enjoy this. If you don't like the others don't bother. The twists are predictable but fun. The villan is also very intersting and deep. If you enjoy Dan Brown use your credit. If you jumped on the bandwagon after the code, find another book.
This book was way too long and Brown was way too wrapped up in his symbols to the point of boredom. It is apparent Brown writes to his once successful formula, but it isn't working any more. It just would not end.
I already knew Dan Brown couldn't write, but he had been a very good story teller. This is boring garbage. I would have rated less than 1 star--but audible doesn't give you that option.
