"Brown moves into new territory with his latest. It's an excellent thriller: a big yet believable story unfolding at breakneck pace, with convincing settings and just the right blend of likable and hateful characters. He's also done his research, folding in sophisticated scientific and military details that make his plot far more fulfilling than the norm." (Publishers Weekly)
"A dazzling high-tech adventure...Brown proves once again that he is among the most intelligent and dynamic of authors in the thriller genre." (Library Journal)
"This is pretty exciting stuff...and Brown certainly does have a knack for spinning a suspenseful yarn." (Booklist)
this must rate as dan brown's worse effort to date - cardboard characters, stilted dialogue and unbelievable plot...give it a miss
Great book, lots of interesting facts. I am glad the only deception with this book was written as a title. I truly enjoyed it, Dan Brown hit a home run this time.
The story is interesting, but at least part of the background info is inaccurate. My husband works on a US nuclear submarine, and most of the info in the book about subs is not at all true. (Unclassified stuff!) Not that I expect a fiction book to contain facts, but Brown writes as if he's done research on the subject and is telling the fiction story around it. It calls into question other info Brown's wrote about in this and other books (i.e. Da Vinci Code).
Though not as good as the Da Vinci Code, still interesting and enjoyable.
It does sound a little bit like the narrator is eating, as a previous reviewer mentioned, but I stopped noticing that after a while.
As all the books of Dan Brown, he keep the reader in his book and it is impossible to let it before to be too tired.
The reader is very good and I hope heard more book from him
I have very enjoy
I read this after reading the Da Vinci Code. I was expecting the same high quality complex plot. Unfortunately this book did not meet up to that standard. It was fairly obvious from the beginning what was going on. However this didn't take away completely from the suspenseful novel. I still enjoyed the book and the characters. If I wasn't comparing it to the Da Vinci Code, I might have given it a higher rating.
