Dan Brown managed to take one character and clone him into several supporting characters. All of the main characters use the same phrases ("Patience," "I assure you") to no end.Where Angels and Demons was a fast paced adventure, this was a slow dragged out performance. Endless lists of all the various symbols and organisations, cost me hours of my life. It is quite acceptable to provide such lists but when every character thinks about them, it forces me to hear it again and again. I should however not be surprised, as Da Vinci Code lost a great deal of the momentum from Angels and Demons. Even in DVC Dan Brown managed to turn on the snooze with his insistence on providing so much "proof" that his story is no longer plausible.I am rambling...
I have not yet read Deception Point and will give it a go, purely because Angels and Demons, and Digital Fortress were two of my favourite books.
Probably, he was not bad.
Frustration. I nearly did not finish it.
