Dan Brown is an author that doesn't shy away from controversy. I can imagine the message could be offensive to some "sheep" that flock to simple interpretations (milk for children) of scriptures. However, I really enjoyed it and thought both the plot and the message were very appropriate for our time. I also enjoyed the depth of information and history surrounding the subject matter. It brings light to subjects and ideas that need illumination. Can't wait for the movie.
First of all LOVED the series, second Roy Dotrice (the reader) portrays the characters wonderfully and moves you through this intriguing, complex labyrinth like a movie. I was late to work several times sitting in the parking lot waiting for a scene to finish. Love books like that.
Very complex and well defined. Most books are like american movies where the good guys always win at the end. This story is more real than that. Treachery, sex and honor.
Hard to say there are so many wonderful characters. Tyrion Lannister, Arya Stark, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen are my favorites.
Winter is coming
The HBO Series based on these books follows the story line very, very close and is a must watch. Of course after you listen to the books.
As a book I thought this was an average listen, however, the secret service aspect of this story was totally unbelievable and ridicules. The other plot of this book had potential but feel way short.
Great book, couldn't stop listening. Only problem is that you have withdrawals when it ends. Hoping for the continued adventures of Mitch and friends.
