I love Dan Brown's novels and this one was no exception. In his classic action packed writing style Dan takes us through Dante's Inferno, yet at the same time making the reader think about things maybe they haven't thought about or haven't thought about in a while. If you are a Dante fan and/or a Dan Brown fan then do not pass this book up.
Paul Michael also did a really great job at narration!
The narrator. I understand that it is hard to find a balance when reading books. There are those with no tone inflections that, despite a great book, tends to put the listener to sleep. Then there are narrators like this one, where everything is stressed as though what is being said is of great revelation even if all they are saying is "she was born on.." You get the feeling that there are 20 exclamation points at the end of every sentence. You start to find yourself rolling your eyes at ever drawn out word and every spike in tone.
I will not say no, as this could have just been a case of bad direction, but I will be weary in the future.
Narrators are a personal performance. The narrator ruined the audio-book for me. This does not mean the book itself was a bad one. I think the author makes some good points and her arguments are verifiable. However, until I read the actual book I cannot give this book a fair review on its content.
Actually "amazing" is not good enough to describe this book. I rarely write reviews, I never know if what I think is a good book, will be agreeable to others. But I have to say this about this book - if you love books, if you are looking for a story that has it all - ups, downs, and everything in-between - that leaves you sad it's over but delighted you listened to it, then you must get this book. I could not put it down (or in this case turn it of). The narrators did a fantastic job. They worked and blended very well together.
The perfect mix of fact and fiction. Really good and entertaining story. If you are looking for a good audiobook to capture your imagination and take you too an old world with a new twist look no further. I also found the narrator very good and enjoyable to listen to.
Yes I love when people tell their own story.
This is a fantastic book. I think it is a must read for everyone. However the narration does not do this book the justice it deserves.
