Not only is this story equal in depth to Dan Brown's novels, Cooper has picked the best narrator from which to share it. I kept nodding my head, as I read the book, agreeing with the motivation of each chacter. Really well done!
Reads like two novels with the jumps back and forth between present day and medieval England. The execution of the plot is well done, but the characters are hopelessly formulaic and cliched. Actually would have liked to see Dan Brown's Robert Langdon be the protagonist, but the obligatory Dirty Harry type works just fine, too. Overall very readable, Glenn Cooper can be forgiven for the cardboard characters. 'The Library' was a very interesting idea.
This book had an interesting start but petered out fast...nothing engaged the listerner. Half way through, i just did not care what happened & i stopped listening.
This book leaves too many unanswered questions at the end and is also anticlimactic. There are many better thrillers out there, I would not waste the credit unless you really like this author. It is also too long and could be at least one to two hours shorter.
