"Richard Poe - Please stop swallowing so loud! :)"
I was probably spoiled by the Davinci code which was an amazing introduction to Dan Brown and I'd bought this after all the big reviews I read about this title, and Im sorry DB fans but for me this was a big let down, true it does have some exciting moments and some interesting insights, but these are few and far between in a audio book of 16+ hours, to be honest after 7 hours it was becoming a real chore to get through, I've only got 2 hours left to go and I honestly cant wait for it to end (I feel like now I've put so much effort in I have to see it through to the end as some sort of weird accomplishment) , so I can start on something new- shame really.
However THE most horrible thing about this book is that once every 10 15 minutes the narrator does a horrible long, loud, saliva filled swallowing noise which (especially if you've got headphones on) is VERY off putting and makes me forget the next minutes as I get over the noise :) :) :)
This book is a great story but way too long and too wordy. Choose if you wish to listen to descriptive content for hours!!!
Good old Dan Brown. Exciting and fast-paced. Great book.
"good as ever"
enjoyed the book as with all Dan Brown' fictions. keep writing and sharing your imagination
"It twists and turns and deceives"
A very entertaining audiobook. The tale is laced with lies and deceits, so that unless one is extremely vigilant, it is just about impossible to know if anyone at all is telling the truth. Greed for power and influence generates death and destruction, lives are lost, loyalties tested, and reputations destroyed. The pace is fast and even though it is predictable in parts, it remains a competently delivered adventure story.
"At what point"
there are so many turns in this book you begin to wonder who is the good person here. not to give any thing away but really cliff edge hanging at times.
on the ice hanging before being set a drift.
he was well into the story telling and charatures
laugh as you got to know what was happening
is there a squeal?
"Loved this book!"
This story changed my life for the period of time that I was reading it. I'd look forward to commuting so that I could get a fix of the next chapter. Very engaging.
"Some mistakes. "
Excellent story but for the following :
I found that Dan does not understand the physics of deep sea diving.
Great story. Lots of twists and always leaves you questioning the details. Are they real or just fiction !
Gripping in parts, had me on the edge of my site.
well read and very enjoyable to listen to.
