Great story, extremely well written. The authors descriptions of the beautiful locations, art and various events, leaves the reader longing to experience each and every locale.
The book is rich in characters and imagery but the most intriguing part of the book is the subject matter. I don't want to give anything away but for me the book completely captures the essence of human behavior and our inherent ability to deny that our actions will ultimately lead to our own destruction. An exciting and scary read!
If you haven't seen the movie and plan to, read the book first. Many key points were changed for the movie including the ending. The movie is okay but the book is much better!
Without ruining the story for others I can say that this is not up to par with Brown's previous books. The characters are not developed and the story is really boring. I am sorry I wasted a credit on the purchase.
I've completed several of Brown's books and this by far has the most satisfying and believable ending. Like the others, it's fast paced and full of action. Recommended if you like Robert Langdon's adventures.
I love some of the other Dan Brown books. This one was disappointing. The only word I can think to describe the end is lame. Way too far fetched. Bummer - I really wanted to love it.
I really liked the story and the message it tries to deliver. Uncontrolled population growth is a huge problem that we must face in order to maintain or create a sustainable development in our planet. This novel is full with exciting drama, action and suspense. I totally recommend.
beats the movie a hundred times fold, better ending, more exciting future left ahead.
fantastic narrative work, thank you Paul!!
