I was really disappointed with this book. There was about 10 minutes worth of suspense in total and the last hour of listening to this book was so boring that I fell asleep a few times and had to go back to listen to it again. I will not easily spend money on the next Dan Brown book before reading the reviews.
I really enjoyed the previous 2 books... this one, however, was a real disappointment.
17 hours to tell a "fast paced" 10-hour story. Every few chapters we are treated to half an hour of history and lecture material, and the once "Brilliant" professor, seemed to have become a first year student.
One of those books that makes me wish I could exchange audio books.
An unashamed Audiophile who has his own studio and business called iZENEARS which brings Australian travel and history to life for locals and visitor's alike.
I have followed Brown and always found the stories entertaining and delightfully implausible. But this one, although well narrated, suffers from 'success syndrome' much the same way Cussler went as his fame increased. It feels 'made' rather than 'written' and there is an annoying repetition of information already delivered in much the same way you see on television when delivering pseudo documentaries. There are 'moments' but it fails to deliver his brand, that being 'believable/possible'.
If you loved Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons then you will love this one also. An excellent and interesting plot which is beautifully written. Paul Michael does a terrific narration.
