The believable intertwining of fact, fiction and history.
The range. You knew what character was speaking at all times and he really had a great grasp of the foreign languages being used.
Now and then I like a book that is a more challenging read. I love the easy mysteries I can enjoy while driving to and from work or when I am in and out of the car doing errand, so I can easily pick up where I left off. This was not one of those. It is book to concentrate on while listening. Oh so enjoyable though. I enjoyed it enough that I found myself sitting in a parking lot (more than once) and listening just a little more before going about errands and even going in the house when I arrived home. If you are looking for a light easy read this isn't the book for you, but when you want something a little more intricate and challenging, this may be the one.
This was similar in style to Divinci Code but not quite as strong. Its good enough that if you're in the mood for that style and out of Dan Brown books then give it a try. Not exciting enough for me to seek out more from the author though.
Not very historically or religiously accurate but I guess to much accuracy in either court would have destroyed the whole story line. But the audio tour of France was nice.
Did a good southern accent for Cotton.
All of the preachy scenes by Henrik Thorvaldsen. At least an hour of the book is taken up by Henrik lecturing. Really helps the trip fly by...........
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend only after I offered her a brief synopsis about the plot.
Mark was my favorite character. When I first met Mark, the man was 38 years old. However, he still was looking to find himself. His character developed into a man who became centered and strong. He knew just who he was and was ready to take charge of himself.
I've heard Paul Michael narrate before. He's an excellent narrator but I found that many of the voice's did not match the character. Also, I wasn't able to put a voice to a character and know who he was. Maybe there were too many character's to personalize with a definitive voice.
I did not feel threatened about my own beliefs. However, the author was critical of Christianity, especially Catholicism. I have questioned the hereafter and no one has ever come back and talked to me who has died, to provide confirmation. Beliefs are structured on one's faith, what you find to be your own truth. I'm not knowledgeable of the bible but I found it interesting to listen to the many debates that were centered around the New Testament. I started to read the novel several times before I was able to get past the third or fourth chapter. The novel was a slow starter but it was worth the read.
Yes, it was fast moving and entertaining. It is purely a fiction book that was easy to listen to. I didn't have to think too hard.
Yes, if I know that they like this type of book
Yes, into a movie, similar to National Treasure.
Clear speech and great story line. Captures your attention from the first paragraph.
The articulate speech and graphic description of events.Even though it is a complicated novel with historic events, the teller makes it easy to listen to and comprehend.
No change of novel heading
I found this title by looking up the audible list under "history". This is a story, with some historical info, but it is Dan Brown style, except for the honest account by the author at the end of the book, who tells us what is real and what is not. But it is basically a novel, not a historical account of the Templars.
I'm sure the audio is better - always is!
Good action. Good characters. Moved along well. Sometimes I thought it went into the history a little more than I liked, but I'm sure others appreciated that.
The final scenes when they discover the Great Divise in the Monastery
No, but it kept me reading.
Similar to DaVinci Code
The search mixed with danger
I liked him as a reader and the different voices. Definitely would listen to him again.
Liked at the end clarification was made what was fiction vs fact
