same song, second verse
Robert Langdon racing to beat the bad guys, a little history, a little culture. For me got stale just about the end of Da Vinci code. It's formulaic authorship was good once. Three or four times at bat doesn't work for me.
Good storyline....edge of your seat listen....twists and turns
Scene in the museum where the Dante mask appears lost
It's time for Robert Langdon to retire. This is just the same book as the last one with a slightly different plot and names changed to protect the guilty.
I don't think there is really anymore for the good Professor to do that could be particularly feasible. This was the book version of the last Indiana Jones movie.
The voices are always spot on.
I think I already saw Indiana watch the spaceship fly away, so I'll pass.
Dan Brown has written some great books and hopefully he will move on to new characters and fresh, interesting and intelligent plots.
Out In The Garden
Entertaining - action - educational
The wonderful descriptions of art.
The foreign language and names of locations.
Made me want to study history.
Fast action and good story.
I love travel, history, art and architecture as much as anyone, but this novel was disappointing compared to predecessors. Some bits of the story were very entertaining but the overabundance of descriptive narrative became irritating and left me thinking where are you going with that and how does this improve the story?
Yes. It's a good story. If your liked Angels and Demons, you'll like this one.
Pretty good job
Not really, but easy listening. I usually enjoy the sidebar history, art, and architecture tidbits in a Dan Brown novel. Unfortunately, the lessons here often feel totally disconnected, or thrown in as an afterthought... like the kitchen sink. The story feels overwritten, as if a publisher asked for 800 pages. I feel sorry for people who bought the $42.00 version.
No. A good mystery should lead the reader to its conclusion, with at least a slim chance to guess the ending, not require pages and pages of explanation to tie up loose ends and improbable plot lines, before moving on to the climax. Perhaps an abridged version would seem like less of a slog. Fast moving action doesn't necessarily mean a well-paced story.
Easy to listen to. He does a good job with different voices and accents.
Yes. Download Dante's version... maybe.
Lesson learned: Don't jump on a new book.
I still have all my children's books: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Nancy Drew, horse books, Edward Eager, Charlotte's Web, and many more.
More action. More believable characters.
So much exposition. I almost fast forwarded.
I don't like narrators who speak too slowly.
I was disappointed that I thought quite often of not finishing.
It's terrible and the same formula as his other books moving from one scene to another. It felt like Dan Brown really phoned this one in. His first couple books were fun but it's gotten old.
