I read this after reading the Da Vinci Code. I was expecting the same high quality complex plot. Unfortunately this book did not meet up to that standard. It was fairly obvious from the beginning what was going on. However this didn't take away completely from the suspenseful novel. I still enjoyed the book and the characters. If I wasn't comparing it to the Da Vinci Code, I might have given it a higher rating.
From the first minute to the last I couldn't stop listening to this book. It was so interesting! Dan's research on military, politics, and innovative technology was absolutly wonderful. I recomend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a good read.
I really enjoyed this book. The science was interesting and the characters were fun to get to know. No, this book is not as good as DaVinci Code, but I still really enjoyed the listen and the story. For those who think they shouldn't listen to this because it's not as good as DaVinci code - really, that was such a good book, there are few that can compare!
As always, Dan Brown has written another winner. It keeps you interested in going on to see what is next. Enjoyed this very much as with all of Dan Browns' books.
I enjoyed this audiobook; it wasnt on par with Dan's other 3 novels but it was entertaining. I was unimpressed with the slightly lame plot and I was often confused by badly described action scenes. But thats ok, because Dan Brown really learnt a lot from it, and he improves his style immensely in his other novels. All the same, it is pure Dan Brown and is perfect for those eager for some more of his style of writing, as we all wait for his next novel.
I love books.
If you are a fan of Dan Brown, I would recommend you skip reading or listening to this book. The narration was fine, it just felt too grueling to listen to this entire story. It's obvious that he did a lot of research and was trying to pump his new knowledge into the story. It just didn't come together very well. Any of Brown's other books make for a much better listen.
