"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)
A decent story, as one would expect from Brown. One of the worst narrators I have ever listened to. The obnoxious mouth noises almost made me give up.
At end of every sentence or chapter you can hear the narrator wet mouth kinda like the sound when u mix pasta in a bowl and u here the wet sound. Drove me nuts. Have all other Dan brown books and really wanted to hear this book but just could not go thru with it after less than an hour. Very sad
I really enjoyed this book. There were times when I was finding excuses to go on extended drives in the car so that I could finish a chapter.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
Very suspenseful! Particularly in the last part of the STORY!!
I would have to say the long details, at times, was a bit TO MUCH!
WELL WORTH THE LISTENING!!!!
Richard Poe is an excellent reader but he has some unfortunate mouth noises that sound like crackling lolly paper. It is really distracting and I honestly couldn't bear the expectation of hearing it one more time or imagining what could possibly be making the sound.
I have to agree with all the other reviewers... The sound of Poe's lips and tongue and saliva are distracting and disgusting. Still a good listen, but come on people, learn how to produce cleaner audio.
The book was decent and Richard Poe really paints a picture. Unfortunately it's painted with saliva. I think I would have liked the book more if the "mouth sounds" were not so prevalent. I assume they have used some new technology that turns Bubble Yum into a microphone capable of capturing every nearly imperceptible sound the human mandible makes.
I don't think this is Richard Poe's fault however or Dan Brown's. They did a great job and aside from the live action experience of being a piece of taffy working it's way though the first part of digestion. This was a great book.
I only hope the old gypsy man that cursed the recording with the word "Wetter" when it ran over his daughter has found solace in the fact that we all suffered the sopping sounds of Deception Point. I'm eager to listen to other recordings from inside a dogs mouth.
"At what point"
there are so many turns in this book you begin to wonder who is the good person here. not to give any thing away but really cliff edge hanging at times.
on the ice hanging before being set a drift.
he was well into the story telling and charatures
laugh as you got to know what was happening
is there a squeal?
"Loved this book!"
This story changed my life for the period of time that I was reading it. I'd look forward to commuting so that I could get a fix of the next chapter. Very engaging.
"Some mistakes. "
Excellent story but for the following :
I found that Dan does not understand the physics of deep sea diving.
Great story. Lots of twists and always leaves you questioning the details. Are they real or just fiction !
Gripping in parts, had me on the edge of my site.
well read and very enjoyable to listen to.
"Forget Fortitude, this is better!"
A typical Dan Brown novel, glamous but bright woman meets dashing hero with complicated backstory. Deception, politics and murder around every corner.
The helecopter attack- get out of that one!
The President- a dead ringer for Morgan Freeman!
The Truth is under the Ice.
A book worthy of further promotion given the interest and heavy marketing of Fortitude at the moment.
Good story good characters I found the Delta forces weapons a bit far-fetched nonetheless it was a good story .
"Can't go wrong."
You can't go wrong with a Dan Brown book. Excellently read and very gripping. Almost didn't sleep for a whole night listening to this.
"Deception Point by Dan Brown"
This may not be the the most well known of Dan Brown's novels but for me it's certainly one of his best. Exciting and full of suspense each chapter leaves you wanting to read the next, with no let up in the drama in what is a completely original story mixing Political power wielding with scientific and oceanic research together with polar and space exploration, it's quite some combination. The characters are well described and the story is relentlessly exciting, and it's very much helped by it being a very well read audio book. Fully Recommended.
the characters could have been believable - at any level. As it is, they are cliched, comic book stereotypes.
Phillip K Dick i think or Edith Wharton
Its difficult to answer this as i don't read Dan Brown's novels. I liked the reader - he sounded more intelligent than the characters.
Yes: theres a great sense of location, drama and a dynamically ludicrous plot.
having paid for it i tried listening to it more than once but it was like listening to teenage boys' ripping yarns. ok if you like ripping yarns.
