As good as Da Vinci Code was,, this was a it's opposite. Either Dan Brown did not write it, or he "slept walked" through the creation of Inferno. The plot was predictable, the writing choppy and the characters lifeless.
A very disappointing book for Brown. I can only hope that Dan Brown gets over his writer's block and does better next time..
This was a story that had to be listened to twice. The narrator was good as well. I find that stories that are written in the present tense to be more difficult to write, but Carey does it with flare.
This was am abysmal attempt at recreating the Casca series. I will say that Mr. dengue legit did improve it his second attempt, Casca: The Defiant.
I dearly love the "displaced in Time" books such as Guns of the South and Final Countdown. Were this to have been my first book of this genre, I would never have read another. Everone portayed in this novel are flawed and unlikable. This book would have been much better if there had been at least a few characters with redeeming values. I understand that the author probably wnted "realistic" and "beleivable" persons in his book, but I know that there are people who are likable in real life. A few in this book is not too much to ask for.
Jay Snyder did a good job performing this book. It is not his fault that the material was so lack-luster.
