"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.
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.
"Forget Fortitude, this is better!"
A typical Dan Brown novel, glamous but bright woman meets dashing hero with complicated backstory. Deception, politics and murder around every corner.
The helecopter attack- get out of that one!
The President- a dead ringer for Morgan Freeman!
The Truth is under the Ice.
A book worthy of further promotion given the interest and heavy marketing of Fortitude at the moment.
Good story good characters I found the Delta forces weapons a bit far-fetched nonetheless it was a good story .
"Can't go wrong."
You can't go wrong with a Dan Brown book. Excellently read and very gripping. Almost didn't sleep for a whole night listening to this.
"Deception Point by Dan Brown"
A unique story encompassing Political manoeuvres in the run up to a USA presidential election involving an amazing NASA space agency deception uncovered by the daughter of President's opponent and her scientific friends, including amazing pieces about the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean. Gripping and interesting throughout, it's another great book by Dan Brown which is narrated perfectly by Richard Poe. Recommended.
the characters could have been believable - at any level. As it is, they are cliched, comic book stereotypes.
Phillip K Dick i think or Edith Wharton
Its difficult to answer this as i don't read Dan Brown's novels. I liked the reader - he sounded more intelligent than the characters.
Yes: theres a great sense of location, drama and a dynamically ludicrous plot.
having paid for it i tried listening to it more than once but it was like listening to teenage boys' ripping yarns. ok if you like ripping yarns.
