"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.
"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"
This may not be the the most well known of Dan Brown's novels but for me it's certainly one of his best. Exciting and full of suspense each chapter leaves you wanting to read the next, with no let up in the drama in what is a completely original story mixing Political power wielding with scientific and oceanic research together with polar and space exploration, it's quite some combination. The characters are well described and the story is relentlessly exciting, and it's very much helped by it being a very well read audio book. Fully 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.
"Started really well-pity about part two"
Yes, in general it was a quite an intriguing political thriller especially part one which outlines what is an unusual plot. Some good and grimy political wheeling, dealing and plotting around the USA's presidential elections and NASA. .Not heavy on characterisations this novel so it's hard to build a degree of real empathy with any of them.
I am interested in space exploration and the work of NASA so this element of the book was appealing.Throughout Part One the build-up to actually understanding what is 'going on' is really very well done and I just couldn't stop listening- SO intriguing.
Least interesting was the huge amount of technical information that just became over-whelming and for me, turned into a distraction and then an obstacle to enjoyment of the ending.
Hard-hitting, clear, concise delivery.
Possibly yes it would make the transition as it has all of the essential modern-day movie attributes. such as political intrigue, corruption, murder and an explosive ending. They'd have to jettison all that technical data though.
Part Two was a let down for me. Just too much technical information!! Too many cliches as well and then it all got a bit trite which surprised me. This was my first Dan Brown novel and I know he does his research really thoroughly, so I took a chance on it. Great pity Part Two just lost it about half way through.
