After reading Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code, I was expecting something different, and this book was a disappointment. Too much technological ramblings just seemed to override the action and political intrigue. Not a favorite.

Thought provoking book--made me think about a meteorite landing on Earth and what that would mean for the human species. Well researched and of course, the "suprise" person at the end blew me away! Dan Brown always does that!

I loved The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, so I bought this book hoping it would be just as great. It's definitely a page turner, but I didn't love it as much as the other two.

Great Book. Just as intriguing as his others. Every time you think you have it figured out, something changes. I loved it and couldn't put it down.

Exciting political mystery. Each time I thought I knew who the "bad" guy was, I was surprised to find I was mistaken. Great thriller, kept me on my toes, causing me to keep turning the pages to find out what was next!
Highly recommended!

What a marvelous book. I put it up against books written by Vince Flynn (who I consider my favorite author). Even when I thought I had figured it out, Brown throws a curve ball that caught me totally off guard. This is a book that you won't be able to put down.

Expected more than what was offered. I was anticipating a better plot than was present.

I really enjoyed this book!! It is just as good as other Dan Brown books, but has a very different subject matter.

Good book but the end was weak. Not Di Vinci Code quality but still a good read

Dan Brown is a very good story teller. I don't know how much of the science he describes is based in truth, but it was fun to suspend belief for a while and get into this action packed thriller. I like the strong female characters he writes as well. The lead character finds strength she never knew she had.

When the pick story twist was coming, I thought for sure I had it pegged and had I been right I told myself I would not like the book, but I wasn't right. He really got me.

I loved this book. I hadn't heard of Dan Brown before "the davinci code." I could not put this book down. Definitely would recommend.

Dan brown takes us along for an exciting ride, murder mystery set against the backdrop of political cover-up story over scientific revelations.

Can't wait for movie to come out!

This book was amazing. I couldn't put it down. Despite it's 634 pages I finished it in 4 days. A thriller to the end.

This is a great read...I was put off at first by the size of the novel (over 700 pgs), but it turns out, the plot is so interesting and so well written that it was really a fast read. There is non-stop action on multiple fronts, the characters are well developed and "likable"and Dan Brown is an exceptional story teller. I highly recommend this book.

I loved it. Great, easy read like all Dan Brown Books, and has lots of twists! You feel educated and thrilled at the same time!

An interesting story with some good characters, but not very believable. The technologies that are described and, according to the author, actually exist, are the best part.

Not as good as Angels and Demons or Davinci Code. But it was still a good book. It has a similar story line like his other books, but definitely not as intriguing.
