There wasn't much of anything to like.
The long boring history lesson is what I liked least.
None of them.
I hope not. If it is maybe they can BASE the movie/series on the book.
To see if I can pick up on the twist
The fact that real places are tied into the story, and that it's a history lesson rapped up in modern world issues.
Outstanding as always!
It made me think about our world today and what may be ahead for future generations.
I don't know if the King is in the altogether as naked as the day that he was born. Instead his most finely tailored suit went out for a walk without him. I think it was the janitor wearing it. I love history and I love Florence also but I thought I was buying a suspense novel. This was little more than a travel guide with a bit of history and no pictures. There was some kind of story in it I think but it wasn't much of one. I won't spoil the end for anyone but the idea of what the danger is fits in well with recent news. Unfortunately, it seemed that Mr. Brown had a deadline to meet or something because the the plot could have been much more realistic and with much more plausible twists. One great thing about this book (and all of his books) is that it makes my childlike curiosity run rampant. I am going to read a book I never had an interest in, Dante's Inferno (I've had the CDs on my bookshelf for a couple of years). I haven't read "Digital Fortress" yet either (also on my shelf) but I certainly will. Mr. Michael did a great job with what he was handed. Gotta see what else he did.
I would recommend it to those that really enjoy this series. Not for the casual fan of the Langdon novels.
I would for the the simple fact that I really love quite a bit of his work. I would love to see him write another stand alone novel, a la Deception Point.
Mr. Michael had the perfect voice for this tale. Ominous, just like the novel would be written. And of course, all the foreign words and locations were pronounced perfectly (at least to my knowledge). Great job with the multitude of voices and accents!
I do not really see this as much of a movie oportunity.
No, it was depressing and not that interesting. Very little symbology and a lot of philosophy.
No, I love this kind of genre. I devoured the other titles from Dan Brown. The DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons were terrific!
No, it was slow moving and really "preachy".
Dante, Amazing, Unexpected
I like how he blended fiction and fact, bringing awareness to issues that can't be ignored. The twists just kept coming and I enjoyed every word of the book.
The part where he talked about the direction our out of control spike in population is taking us. It was eye opening realizing we are a one way trip to doom if we don't figure out something soon.
I liked the story line, it had a lot of twists and turns. The ending wasn't predictable which I liked.
I wasn't sure who were his allies and who were his enemies. Things kept changing and that kept my interest.
I listen as I commute to and from work. This book made me look forward to the drive.
Inferno is a good book and another Robert Langdon story- not the best one I have read/heard, but a good one.
Robert Langdon needs to retire and go to florida- he's had a rough go.
I'm just a book lover!
I'm a Dan Brown fan. I read most everything he writes. This was my first listen to one of his books and although I loved Paul Michael's ability to effortlessly switch from one voice to another, I missed actually reading this book. That being said, I found this an interesting and intriguing story with a thought provoking issue. What IF there was a virus that could do what was created (without giving anything away here).? Overall, if you enjoy all of the Robert Langdon novels, this one is another great read. Thank you Mr. Brown!!
