    "Dross!"

    Drivel of the standard of a fifteen year old's wish fullfilment fantasy. When the hero (ruggedly handsome) gets of on a secret jet, shaped like a space shuttle, made out of matrix bonded something or other, which can fly at MACH 24, you know what you are in for. Never mind suspending your disbelief, you would have to string it up from the rafters! I've never read any of the author's other books, including the best selling De Vinci code, and on the strength of this I never will. You would need a sharp knife to cut this bland old cheese.

    "Another good pulp adventure"

    This time Dan Brown demonstrates his complete ignorance of basic physics, which implies an equal lack of knowledge of the Catholic church. When he writes about a subject I know (e.g. cryptography or physics) he is so far off the mark that I have no doubt he is equally inaccurate when dealing with other subjects. But don't let that detract from a pretty decent adventure yarn. There are no "revelations" here (or in any of his books), but the story has pace and thrills. And if you know anything about CERN, antimatter containment, aerodynamics, or systems design, you will have quite a few good laughs too.

    "Same book as Divinci Code"

    Just change around the characters names and add anti-matter and you have essentially the same book/formula. I won't put write a spoiler but I could easily re-name the characters and there would be little difference from the other book. The ending is even similar to the other book. I suppose keep releasing the same story until it catches on in this case.

    "riveting"

    Excellent excellent book. I augmented my listening enjoyment with Google Earth, looking at the area being described in the book.

    "Disappointing"

    Story-line has lots of potential, but the action is not believable and the plot becomes too predictable. Couldn't possibly kill off the bad guy until the story had led to the end of the trail. Maybe Dan Brown was trying to write a screen play, not a novel.

    "Great Book - Odd Ending"

    This book was absolutely great and exactly what you would expect from Dan Brown.

    The ending of the book did take somewhat of a Sci-Fi turn to me.

    With that - I have zero desire to see the movie as the book is all I needed and more!

    "Great book - up there with DaVinci Code"

    Very good book, well read.
    I enjoyed this every bit as much as DaVinci Code.
