I keep wanting to like these types of books but just can't quite get into them. They start with promise but tend to each have their own issues. While this one was well written and I adored the puzzle of the Hypnerotomachia the main character's apathetic nature made me batty. He lets life rule him and for a while strives to break this pattern but in the end his nature over rides any of his desires and leaves the reader feeling lacking. I've seen some people rave about this book but I'll have to admit it wasn't for me.

An exciting read that keeps you in suspense until the very end. It's a very interesting mystery that blends fiction and history into a modern setting.

I was disappointed by this book. The concept seemed interesting, it just felt disjointed and I often had to go back and relisten to sections to try and figure out what was happening. It definitely wasn't a book that grabbed my attention and held it throughout.

The story was a little complicated.
