I'm afraid that this book is the same as all books that I've read by Dan Brown. The book is written for the dumbed down masses, and assumes that the reader has hardly ever read anything before, has virtually no general knowledge, and won't see through the flimsiest of plots.
This book is, to literature, what Ryan Seacrest is to music, or what Paris Hilton is to feminism.
It's not a "bad" story per se, but it lacks imagination and is highly predictable. The performance however, is very good indeed.
It's not TERRIBLE, but neither is it engaging or exciting. The character development is weak, the story line lacks the urgency and terror of a good zombie novel. By the end of the book I felt disappointed by the formulaic plot, and the uninspired narration. I found my mind wandering to other things while listening to this book, which never happens in a truly well written, gripping book.
