"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.
"Another phenomenal novel from Dan Brown"
This is an amazing story with deception and plot twists at every turn. Assume nothing!
"Great story - the worse narration I have heard"
The story is exciting, fast paced and very easy to listen to. I read this book when it originally came out but forget how much of a fun read it is.
Senator Sexton, a true politician!
This was one of the worse performances I have heard, the constant swallowing of saliva over the mic and overall ambient sounds he made drove me mad!
his voices are strong and the characters well read but this is all put to one side when all goes quite and suddenly the Niagara falls of spit are swallowed loudly over the book.
not a bad story, a bit far fetched with plot but understandable.
still politics is still despicable.
"Great book and lovely satisfying end"
Yes at some points I just had to keep going as the story was so gripping.
"has everything brilliant book"
excellent story, gripped in parts and brilliantly narrated, will be buying another Dan Brown book
Constantly kept me guessing who was the big bad, some good twists, some a bit far fetched and what must be the luckiest characters ever to have survived all they did!
but worth a listen, love all the geeky stuff and the mystery of all this space exploration etc..
"Hard to put down - really enjoyed this read"
A good story which has some nice twists and turns well read. I would recommend this book.
