I enjoyed the story though it was a bit slow to get started (unlike Angels and Daemons and DaVinci). I got exasperated at the too frequent use of teasers in the beginning, after a while "... and then what she saw was amazing [end of chapter]" and "... he couldn't believe his eyes. [end of chapter]" got annoying rather than building more suspense. It felt like he spent the whole first half of the book making filler with teasers thrown on top for a little flavor.
One it got rolling it was a good ride though, the ending was somewhat surprising if you tried to forget the style of his other books and realize the misdirections along the way were there to make an unexpected finish. Overall quite enjoyable.
The narrator is exellent and was well directed, he gives great life to the characters, locations and events.
The recording was horrible, it sounded like they installed the mic inside the narrators mouth. The sounds of him breathing and swallowing were frequently distacting and downright disgusting at times.
