"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)
I really enjoyed this book. The science was interesting and the characters were fun to get to know. No, this book is not as good as DaVinci Code, but I still really enjoyed the listen and the story. For those who think they shouldn't listen to this because it's not as good as DaVinci code - really, that was such a good book, there are few that can compare!
As always, Dan Brown has written another winner. It keeps you interested in going on to see what is next. Enjoyed this very much as with all of Dan Browns' books.
I enjoyed this audiobook; it wasnt on par with Dan's other 3 novels but it was entertaining. I was unimpressed with the slightly lame plot and I was often confused by badly described action scenes. But thats ok, because Dan Brown really learnt a lot from it, and he improves his style immensely in his other novels. All the same, it is pure Dan Brown and is perfect for those eager for some more of his style of writing, as we all wait for his next novel.
I love books.
If you are a fan of Dan Brown, I would recommend you skip reading or listening to this book. The narration was fine, it just felt too grueling to listen to this entire story. It's obvious that he did a lot of research and was trying to pump his new knowledge into the story. It just didn't come together very well. Any of Brown's other books make for a much better listen.
