Dan Brown starts to lull us into truths, description beyond reproach, and enigmatic characters that take you from darkness to dusk, but certainly not light, in a flurry of an action paced thriller that you can't seem to breathe until you KNOW...
This is a remarkable thriller that has all the Brown trademarks. Landmarks, secrets that one is trained to forget, while others one cannot. I believe this is his BEST. Although I say this about each work he produces, I never rate one.
This is not just for Dan Brown's fans. This is one I dare you to really read and solve...because I certainly won't spoil the surprise!
I bought this book as a gift for someone and then ended up reading it myself before they did. The hardback edition was great; the cover has held up remarkably well. I've thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Good book but not as good as The Da Vinci Code. But a very compelling read, nonetheless. Unputdownable. He interweaves fact with fiction in a masterful way, as usual. Some details were simply too much needed to be cut and some action sequences (especially near the end) should have been abridged. There's more emphasis on action rather than on internal/external dialogues whereas the latter was more interesting. Dan Brown has been correctly criticized as having flat characters usually but there was more depth to most of the characters of this book. Also, I didn't really buy the mega-denouement near the end either. Seemed forced as the antagonist could have thwarted the protagonists far more easily than the way it was played out. I mean, if someone is really driven by a hidden agenda, why would that person not throw road blocks from the very beginning in direct interactions? Why assist (in some cases, greatly) till the very end and then show your true identity? It seemed a bit contrived, maybe a case of deus ex machina and I expected more from Dan Brown. BUT I still loved the book and I would certainly recommend it to anyone, especially to his die-hard fellow fans, like myself.
However, having read the Langdon's series, I have to say, this book lacks the depth and richness that other books provide. The juicy tale of ancient history, the intriguing puzzle-solving and code deciphering, the thought-provoking philosophical quest and moral turmoil...That, in my humble opinion, is what makes Dan Brown a great writer and the Da Vinci Code a timeless piece.
I could be biased because I am too invested in the Prof. Langdon character and have a feeling that arts, history, symbolism is where Brown's heart lies. If I read this book without knowing it was Brown's work, or read this before other books, it might have changed my opinion.
