Learned a lot about Italian art and especially the Divine Comedy, good pace to story
Very well done
Pretty formulaic but still enjoyable
The layman's terms in which Dan Brown writes his stories, and the way in which Paul Michael (the Narrator) reads Brown's books.... he reads them as if he wrote them himself!
Angels and Demons
The Divinci Code
Any of Brown's Books
The way in which he really knows Dan Brown's thoughts and how he reads Browns books as though they were his own.
This book is definitely one of Brown's BEST!!!!!!!
Why it didn't get the media attention that his other books did, I may never know.... but it is a shame!
I don't know why, but this was the hardest 'Robert Langdon' book to get into. All the other books grabbed me from the begining. It took several chapters for this one to capture my full attention. Overall good story though. Gives you a lot to think about afterwards.
It read like a book report. If I wanted to listen to a translation of the Divine Comedy, I would have bought it. It read like the audio version of a fan pic. I've read Dan Brown before and while I admire his research ability, his storytelling fell flat on this one.
Something with a plot. Maybe something by Robert Heinlein.
Sienna. Weak psychopathic not-even-love interest. Couldn't even feel sorry for her. Robert Langdon needs to get himself some new friends. Maybe some leftover underground Cathars?
It just went on and on and. . .
Great book. This is my first Dan Brown book so I don't have others to compare to yet.
I enjoyed all the suspense and twists and turns..
If you liked the other Dan Brown books, you'll be fine. Same formula. Pretty good.
The story is gripping and suspenseful. It takes you through a number of Europe's prime tourism spots (Florence, Venice, Istanbul). Technically, this novel is much better done than most other Dan Brown works.
According to the story, Bertrand Zobrist and Elizabeth Sinskey are Swiss (so they would either speak German, French or Italian). Yet, the way Paul Michael vocalizes them gives them a Slavic accent. That is weird.
Yes, the audio version to better to the print one because it allows my hands to be free and I can carry it anywhere, listen to it everywhere.
The plot is the best thing about the story
When Langdon runs away from the men clad in black after reaching Sienna's apartment
All hell broke loose
So much description in the story loses the reader. Also, I didn't like the part of the story where everything is revealed about the identity of each character and their role in the deception that was playing around Langdon. It was just too much.
The amnesia which was not caused by an accident.
Yes. Your friends are your enemies and your enemies are your friends.
The provost. Cold hearted businessman but realizes there are limits to everything.
The plagues reality.
Overpopulation is a real problem. Zorbrist's solution was wrong but he felt he was saving humanity.
This book was so slow! I love Dan Brown...I preordered this. I couldn't wait. Characters had no personality...I just couldn't connect with anything. Really disappointed.
I felt Mr. Michaels was as bored as I was.
The damned drones.
Waste of money.
