This story never got going, sounded more like a guidebook and then the ending just made the book that much worse. Well you can't always get a good novel. I don't know how this one has such good ratings.
I liked the book, partly because it tweaks on a feeling I have been having for a while. It's a little shrill, but thought provoking.
Part One: A long chase scene during which time the author brings out the details he meticulously researched and writes himself into a corner.
Part Two: Bobby Ewing steps out of the shower.
Part Three: Forced march to a predictable end.
This book is an average thriller sprinkled with "who-done-it" and "look over here too get another clue". Main character development is insufficient so the readers will not have any emotional connection thus, the story line seems like a typical find clue, decode clue, leading to a real climatic ending, which never really surfaces in inferno. At the end it’s just bit to verbose on the monolithic descriptions and very light on the characters sub-plot and development. Still is a good listen/read and I give is a “C” to a C+.
the WHO (world health organization) lack of political power
his Tone and tempo
it will be a long time before I read another Dan Brown book.
I am not a fan of reading Dan Brown books, but the audiobook was nice, as I could take it on the go.
This story dragged on. Did help with the original Inferno.
Don't belabor the same information.
Face paced novel which includes lengthy information on historic Italian relics from Medieval or Renaissance periods.
Mr. Brown has a good imagination. He should hire a ghost writer to express that imagination.
I don't know yet, but it will not be narrated by Mr. Michael.
Mr. Michael's camp approach to mystery narration might be better used for a Sam Spade novel. For a modern novel, the breathlessness is a bit much. Further, the female protagonist is supposed to be an off-the-charts brilliant prodigy. Mr. Michael renders her a breathless bimbo.
The story line was wonderful.
The twists and turns around every corner
I really liked Paul Michael's voice. I could easily follow the characters in the book with his changes in his voice.
