    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "writing was okay, narrating was mediocre"
    Overall

    The book was good, even gripping through the first half. Then it became redundant and very predictable. And the end sounded like an excited school child preaching to you you about the wonder of God. The last four chapters felt like they were never going to end; dragging on and on and going nowhere. I appreciate the insight Brown was trying to portray there, but it was done rather poorly.
    As for the Narrater, Paul Michael, he would blend his voices into the narration and at times I felt like he completely forgot which character he was portraying. He wasn't terrible, and was certainly listenable. But he could have been much more consistent.
    Overall, A good book, not great, but good. It won't become anybody's favorite book. Fan's of Dan Brown will more than likely enjoy it though I don't expect anyone to be terribly impressed.

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    Jay Stone says: "Enduring Classic"
    "Enthralling!"
    Overall

    Orwell's classic is just that, a classic. And Simon Prebble does a great job of bringing it to life. A wonderful listen
