I like Paul Michael`s way of reading the book, and off course: The book itself
The tempo. I figured out some of the "surprises" and I loved that. I also liked the many references to Dante`s inferno and actually wanted to read it afterwards. I was also interested in the idea: What if someone really wants to "kill" people because we become so many people on earth?
The end when they arrive in turkey

The story hooks you from the very beginning.

A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
Though this is a work of fiction there are aspects of this book that have given me quite a bit to think about. Definitely one of Dan Brown's better works. Angels and Demons still holds the top spot for me but this is a close second. Fast paced from the first page to the last it was an enjoyable read.
I would like to see something from Dan Brown that moves away from Robert Langdon.
Nothing truly peaked my interests with this book. I am a big Dan Brown fan, and have read all his books, but I'm just getting bored with the same story played out in a different way.
No. Move away from Robert Langdon and write something different.
Felt bored with this book. First time ever for a Dan Brown novel.
It was the first I listened to, and it was awesome.
Paul Michael's incredible diction makes him very easy to listen to, even for listeners who English is not their first language. His control of tempo, voice, pitch, and consistency throughout his other narrated books make him a favorite reader for me.
Yes! I had to force myself to turn off the audiobook as I arrived to work...
Awesome experience, highly recommend it!
It was a good premise and decent story but it was by far my least favorite Dan Brown novel. I usually finish his books in 3 days because I'm not able to put them down but it took nearly 3 weeks to power through this one. There was more emphasis on the art and architecture than his previous novels, and though I enjoy descriptiveness, it was overkill and brought you out of the story.
The performance, however, was great! His pronunciation was superb and you were able to distinguish the characters by his voice.
I've never read something so formulaic, so predictable and so cliche! Brown managed to squeeze in every possible cliche: amnesia, suicide, dreams: this book should be used to teach writers how NOT to write. It is so bad I could have written it myself ;-). Just few examples: whenever the characters are about to be caught, something or somebody pops up out of nowhere, be it secret passing, some lucky coincidence or anything else.
Gave me nightmares
All of them
I had friends who loved it just not for me.
Exciting. Informative. Calculated.
The plot was no different than any other Robert Langdon series. However, it was well written, well researched, and moved quickly.
Paul Michael clearly distinguishes the characters in the book from one another. It is easy to follow along, and characters are never "dropped."
Prior to this book, I was 75% pleased with Brown's books. I loved The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, and I enjoyed The Lost Symbol. I wasn't a huge fan of Deception Point. This one falls below Deception Point. I found myself wondering multiple times if I should just stop listening since I didn't care how it ended.
The last 90 minutes of the book held my attention. Otherwise it was very difficult to get through. Overall, no, I don't feel like it was worth the listening time.
