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.
"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.
Didn't even read the blurb so totally didn't know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a few good twists and turns.
"You wont be disappointed"
This is an excellent book, fast paced thriller involving NASA which has good character building. The story will keep you on the edge making you want to listen more.
