©2001 Dan Brown; (P)2004 Simon & Schuster Inc. AUDIOWORKS is an imprint of Simon & Schuster Audio Division, Simon & Schuster Inc.
"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)
"100 impossible things to do before breakfast"
Good fairly fast paced romp of a thriller. Enoyed it though - better thought out than Angels and Demons and slightly more believable. The end again with a Dan Brown novel seems rather out of kilter with the rest of the novel - as if he isn't sure how to end a book which seems a shame after ploughing through so many hours.
Well paced, keeps interest going. Good story - enjoyable!
"dont buy the abridged version"
go for the full hog and you won't be disappointed - an excellent and compelling read from start to finish. It takes two minutes to get over the strong american accent and then your gripped by the storyline.
Good old Dan Brown. Exciting and fast-paced. Great book.
Didn't even read the blurb so totally didn't know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a few good twists and turns.
"You wont be disappointed"
This is an excellent book, fast paced thriller involving NASA which has good character building. The story will keep you on the edge making you want to listen more.
I love this book. Keeps you in its grip right to the end. Listening to it makes it even better. I just hope Mr Brown keeps on writing
This book has you on the edge , the story is very interesting with lots to think about, you just can’t stop listening once you start, the narrator is great and the plot well described and the voices are good, i have listened to this book twice in quick succession and enjoyed it very much both times, highly recommended.
"A brilliant read from Dan Brown - again!"
This is my first audible Dan Brown listen. I have read his books in the past and wasn't sure how it would go in talking book format as the story jumps around a bit. However the narrator was brilliant (as was the story line as usual) and I was hooked from the very beginning to the last sentence. A fast paced story with just the right amount of character building and action, all while hinting at past historical events that made me want to find out more about the history of our and past civilisations.
"This was my FIRST Audio book, and got me HOOKED."
I had never downloaded any audio books before, but had a long journey coming up from my home in Burgundy, back to the UK to see family. I had read some Dan Browns, but not this one, so I bought it and stuck it on the ipod, ready for the trip. What a fabulous experience it was, I did not want to stop the car, and even on the ferry, we took the ipod with us , just so we could keep listening. The Plot(s) and characters are truly masterful, and Dan Brown's novel is so well narrated, by Richard Poe, that you just can't stop listening. A SUPERB tale that will leave you hanging on the cliff edge right to the last minute.A wonderful tale, right up there with the best.
