It?s hard to believe that anything being read by James Earl Jones can be described as irritating, but that is the only word for the mediocre background music. After a few minutes, the music begins to affect the ability to listen to the words. A few minutes more and all you hear is the bad music and the words are secondary. I am so sorry I wasted my money on this.
The good news is I finally finished listening to it … the bad news is it wasn’t worth the time. Going back to the quality of Brown’s first two books, it is an okay mystery with a rather simple main character. If Mr. Brown is going to continue to use Robert Langdon, perhaps Mr. Langdon should learn from his previous experiences … after all, he is suppose to be a Harvard Professor. Basically, this book was very unsatisfactory. After waiting for the book for so long, I was extremely disappointed that it ended up being a mediocre tourist guide of Washington D.C., strung together by a very lame plot, that drug on way, way too long. I would not recommend this book. If you want to read a good Dan Brown book, try Angels and Demons.
From the boring plot going exactly as expected to the shallow letter writer who is the only thing close to a character, this book has been a disappointment from beginning to end. The overall description I would give this piece is bland.
