I've read all of the books by Dan Brown and so knew that I was probably going to be getting something formulaic. Still, I thought it was worth a try. I think this will be my last book of his, though.
I felt like I was listening to The Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons, but in a different city with different art and with much worse writing. It was actually pretty hard to listen to in parts, given how slowly the plot moved and how pedestrian the writing was.
The narrator did a good job and I applaud him for trying to make the most of it. But he couldn't rescue the story.
I'm a big DeMille fan. Really liked all the John Corey books. This one is a disappointment, though. Plot is a bit confusing, characters aren't convincing, and action seems forced. Scott Brick does a great job, as always, but can't rescue the story.
