"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)
If you like a good suspence story, this one is for you. I think that Dan Brown shows how well of a writer that he is with this novel. This action/adventure story will hook you from the start, and keep your intrest until the very end. This is definitly a must read.
This is an excellent mystery in the style of Dan Brown without any religous overtones. However, this time, the secret organizations are within our own goverment! Very interesting how this mystery was presented and how the facts were revealed. You are kept in the dark until close to the end...just like Dan Brown wants it! If you like his other books, this one will be a hit for you.
After the DaVinci Code I like the rest of the world seems to be in love with Dan Brown. To me the same themes seem to be in every Brown novel I have listened to, Girl and Guy fall for each other during a tense situation . Found Deception Point to be just as well written as DaVinci and Angels & Deamons.
Excellent book, 10x better than the Da Vinci code or Angels and Demons. I have listened to 100+ Books on tape, this was in the 10 for enertainment. This book will be a big budget movie in the future.
As others have mentioned in their reviews, you really have to suspend your belief in reality to stay with this book. Many times I had to check myself from audibly saying 'no way' when the author makes another leap in logic.
Of the books written by Brown, this was his least enjoyable effort. Don't waste the money on this one.
I usually save audiobooks for exercising, driving and other boring stuff...but I couldn't stop listening to this one until I finished. A real "pageturner". My only complaint is SO minor, The reader repeatedly mispronounced "data".
I thought this audiobook was superb entertainment. I suspended my belief in reality more than once, but that's what entertaining fiction is all about.
The only hinderance to my enjoyment was the array of sounds picked up from the narrator's recording. I found myself guessing whether the "digestion" sounds were the narrator's or my own. Other than the gurgling and growling--the narrator did a fabulous job with telling the tale.
I was captured by this book very quickly. The story line was great. I had difficukty turning it off to go to work. It held me throughout. This is as good as anything Dan Brown has written. I enjoy even the poetic license. I will probably listen to it again.
