There's a ton of historic details in this book that is sometimes draining to listen to. Having said that, it's all relevant and doesn't deter from the excellent story line that pulls you in right at the start and keeps you attentive throughout the entire ride. Angels and DC are still my favorites, but this one is a close third in my opinion. Ben fatto!!
It's definitly one of the ones I would listen to again.
The Shade was one of them. The way is presented and went on thru the story was so creepy, irritating, as well as attenion getting. Everytime he came around he always had me not wanting to miss what was getting out. Then to find out his true ideninty and his reason for what he was doing what he did was spellbinding.
When the mask was found in the tomb.
Yes , there was a certain question that Robert Langdon was asked and I asked myself. He was given an option. After that I stuck with my answer but it had the wheels in my turning, turning so much I went to work and asked several co workers the same question along with the option after they answered. What a conversation starter.
The story was great the only reason why I didn't give 5 stars for story was because there were times when descriptions were drawn out. It was like it kept going and going. I caught myself saying YA YA YA, b/ the story was great I had to stay with it. So glad I did.
Defintely a recommender.
The book starts really slow and takes a while to get interesting, but after a few twists it gets better. Nowhere near as good as the first read of the da Vinci code, or as masterful as angels and demons, bur much more enjoyable than lost symbol. The character of Robert Langdon has definetly overstayed his welcome, and feels more like James bond than a professor. Reccommend you read it if you're gonna watch the movie.
I didn't like this one as much as Lost Symbol, but it was still great. Dan Brown uses incredible history with fantastic storytelling tk make things come alive.
No, I would not. It barely held my attention.
it seems as though the actual content of the story amounts to 10 pages, and DB filled the other several hundred pages with robust descriptions of the scenery, and useless facts about Europe that have no bearing on the story. Again, I think the author just loves Venice, and used this book as an excuse to document said fascination through the eyes of Robert Langdon.
I am at the climax of the story, and I just dont care.
