One of the best.
As a Dan Brown fan you think you'll figure out the twists before they are thrown at you... I couldn't. I was very surprised about the unexpected a lot of times. What I loved the most was that this didn't feel like "just another Dan Brown book".
I liked this one better that his job on Lost Symbol... which was still great. This time he was even better. At no point I felt I was too aware I was listening to a narrator. Instead I was lost in the story the whole time. This was very refreshing after listening to the horrible narration by Richard Poe on Dan Brown's Deception Point... which I just couldn't finish. Thanks Paul for your pleasant voice.
Not better than DaVinci Code or Angels and Demons. But I did like it better than Lost Symbol.
Yes. As always Dan Brown makes history such an intriguing thing. You'll be thrilled and you'll learn.
Angels & Demons, Da Vinci Code. Very unexpected twists. Lots of history.
Most likely not. I thought he did a great job with most of the characters but when it came to the main character (Robert Langdon) it was so uninteresting. Langdon always feels like a very smart person but the narrator made him look dumb at some points in my opinion. Also from time to time he would lose his grip, meaning, you would be very involved in the story for a while and then all of the sudden you were so aware you were listening to a narrator.
Yes. I laughed, my jaw dropped many times. At one point I felt if I kept my mouth opened for a few more seconds a fly might get inside.
I wish next time an unabridged Dan Brown book is narrated they used the impeccable Simon Vance instead.
Can't get enough
A very enjoyable ride along with a great message to society. I love how again you're captured just like in the previous 2 books.
This is the third book I've heard by Simon. He's simply great! I love how he takes you in the story and makes you feel you're in it and not like you're just listening to someone reading a book. Not for a moment I felt distracted. In fact from time to time I would go "is that him doing all those voices?" When he's not doing a character you still feel this excitement about his voice. Like if, along with you, he's also enjoying the story. I really wished he had also narrated the Dan Brown books or something by Stephen King.
