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."
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.
Like reading, love listening.
Lots of historical data and information, it's a joy to read and learn all of this new things.
Since all four books have kinda of the same plot, you can predict what is going to happen.
Research more about the historical facts presented in the book.
Spent the entire weekend listening to this book (almost non-stop). Driving, shopping, cleaning up at home... You can't do that with a print version.
I did, and almost happened... 17 hr book and 35 hrs over the weekend
I had the fortune of visiting these places in Europe in the past two years so it felt so very real. I do really hope they make the movie. Of course I imagined Tom Hanks playing Robert Langdon. Paul Michael sounded just like him in my head..
Please Ron Howard, make it into a movie, it would make an mazing trilogy
This book easily goes to the top of the list of audio books i have listened to so far.
The narrator's voice inflexions were quite good and he brings out Langdon's wry humor very well.
I listen to be enthralled. The experience must transport me from my daily life of work and responsibility. What books qualify?
Maybe. The art and history content holds the reader's interest but the writing is so tedious.
Yes, the narration was on track.
No follow up. The book would have been fantastic with some tragedy or some surprise. Instead it was a whimper of an ending.
