Plot lacks direction far too much padding
No but this is not very gripping
Not racy enough
Dan Brown is relying on his reputation established by the Da Vinci Code. He should get away from this type of plot but it seems he has run out of new ideas
The story line was contrived and poorly structured, and the author was too verbose.
I will never listen to another Dan Brown novel again.
The narrator was good, but not good enough to make the book palatable.
The characters were prisoners of a bad plot.
Somewhere in the middle. My favorites are still the Harry Potter books (I listened to them years ago when Jim Dale was the only narrator and thought he was fantastic). Like Angels & Demons, this book kept our interest, but I wasn't crazy about the ending. I don't want to comment much on why because I don't want to spoil it for anyone.
Robert Langdon. There aren't a lot of other characters to root for.
He kept the pace of the book at a level that kept the suspense going.
Not really. It wasn't very emotional, but was an entertaining book.
Again, wasn't crazy about the ending, but still really enjoyed the book. I listened to it along with my boyfriend while on a long car trip. He's not a reader, but he got into the story and enjoyed it with me.
If you love Dan Brown, you will most defiantly love this book! It's got great twists and stays interesting :)
This book i snot up to Mr. Brown's past. Every situation that occurs, at first there doesn't seem to be a way out but at the last minute a solution seems to materialize out of nowhere. While the action is good and the book moves along, the believability suffers as the story progresses.
On the good side, the references to Dante and history did prompt me into looking up the details. I learned a few things of history that I did not know before. This is Mr. Brown's forte.
A good read but not spectacular.
Nothing made me care about what happened.
I don't think the narrator mattered.
I liked some of Brown's other books, I just couldn't get through this one.
This story was good and in Dan Brown style but I found myself waiting for the end to come where in his other books I was captivated the whole time. Good book, just not my favorite.
I love all nonfiction but in particular history & science. When I tire of facts I'll run to fiction
Since The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown has been a consistent seller. I've loved his previous books and expected a similar thriller laced with the fascinating history of symbology Brown ties through all his books. It raced by quickly as all his books do and kept my attention well but I felt the story was missing the intensity of his previous books.
Not unless they were planning a trip to Italy
Take any previous book, subtract Catholic & Vatican, replace with Dante & Italy and you have the same book. Then never ending descriptions & history of every little bit of architecture had me fast forwarding in the hope that the story would pick up. Narration was good.
