    So bad. I was annoyed that it took so long to reveal how bad of a book it was that I had to finish just to see where the lame plot twists ended up. It is just too far fetched. The Father Sexton character is not believable at all. No father would act like that. Dan Brown looked up a ...

    My aunt gave this to me to read..I of course hate Dan Brown but I figure it'd be fast and I could thank her for it, mention some interesting tidbits that are no doubt sprinkled throughout the book for idiots, and feel good about family duty. There is not one paragraph that is close to ...

    This was read at the tail-end of my brief Dan Brown phase (let he who has never enjoyed an airport-bookstore novel cast the first stone), and by this point I was getting a little tired of Brown's storytelling formula. And by "formula", I really mean "formula". Here it is: How To Mak...

    The formula is pretty simple: Big Mystery + Male Protagonist + Female Protagonist + Code to Solve + OMG TRAITOR WITH TWISTED MOTIVES = Best Selling Novel. And it's worked, so I guess we can't hate on him too much. There are people who swear his books are the best thing they've ever...

    After I read The DaVinci Code, which I liked, and Angels and Demons, which I loved I put the other Dan Brown books on my wish list. I was recently sent this one as part of a bookring and decided to read it. Rachel Sexton works for the National Reconnaissance Office as an intelligenc...

    I liked a lot this novel! NASA AND MY PERSONAL ADMIRATION FOR THAT INSTITUTION In my mind, the men and women of NASA are history's modern pioneers. They attempt the impossible, accept failure, and then back to the drawing board while the rest of us stand back and criticize...

    This is one of the few books I wanted to throw across the room. Especially when the protagonist starts tapping Morse code out on the iceberg to attract the patrolling nuclear submarine. Give me a break. ...

    This is the third book by Dan Brown that I have read (the other two being The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons) and I think by now it's safe to say that I don't like him as an author. This book, like the others, reads too much like a Hollywood script for me (in fact I can tota...

    The good 'ole days of Dan Brown, that's for sure. This is by far his best book in my opinion. The book is readable and lacks the self-indulgence seen with so many other authors and so many other Dan Brown books! ...

    Absolutely wonderful. I'm saying that right at the beginning. I love this Dan Brown book so much to the point of fangirling. I think this is Mr. Brown at his best and perhaps his more underrated books out of everything he's published so far. I also have no idea why it's not being m...

    dear reader, My first Dan Brown novel. It kept me turning from page to page, thrilled by the action and fast paced plot. Lost by everything that was going on at once for more times I can care to count. Baffled at the new information the author was hurling at me all at once. Confused...

    Another fast-paced thriller dealing with the NSA from Dan Brown. I found this novel to be right on par with Digital Fortress and thought that it was a very well-written thriller. From start to finish Deception Point takes the ball and runs with it like any other Dan Brown thriller. I l...

    Ok I have read 4 of the 5 Dan Brown books and I have come up with a user friendly recipe that anyone can use to create their own pulp fiction Dan Brown creation. Add 1 strong, intelligent, attractive career woman. Add 1 semi-strong, (but not as strong as the woman) man, that is semi-...

    Dan Brown is never going to win any literary awards that's for sure. Mixed metaphors abound ("a searing pain sliced into her head..." etc), the use of the word "ephemeral" where I'm pretty sure he means "ethereal", and the explanation of how due to a childhood accident where our main c...

    5 stars A thrilling and gripping page turner with a lot of action and almost non stop tension, building up towards the end. I really liked the characters (view spoiler)[and was so afraid Corky would die on me lol (hide spoiler)] with the exception of Gabrielle. I found her to be quit...

    This is the second book I have read from Dan Brown. I read The Da Vinci Code first. And, whoever read The Da Vinci Code would think this book does not measure up to the other book's penmanship. But, I liked this book. This book has the same breath-taking suspense that does not let r...

    As a stand-alone Dan Brown book this one was interesting and did hold its own against Robert Langdon and his never ending series. 3.5 stars rounded down. Rachel Sexton handles data communications for national intelligence, her father is running for President against the corporation sh...

    In times of presidential elections ethics are helpless, and are employed, all the tricks and gags to manipulate the elections. Senator Sexton uses NASA itself as a weapon to denigrate the president's image, since in recent years the word NASA seemed to have disappeared from newspapers ...

    "Deception Point" is one of my favorite books from Dan Brown. And although I have to admit that for my taste Dan Brown novels are sometimes a bit too archetypal and with a Hollywood blockbuster style, in general, I think it's a book that achieves its goal: to entertain the reader. The...

    The Deception Point gives you a sneak preview of the inner political workings at play in Washington, its clandestine organizations, their actions and ensuing political ramifications. Privatization of space travel - which is now a reality - plays an integral part of the plot and in doin...

    I am a loyal fan of Dan Brown and am proud to say that I have read all his books except for the Angels & Demons which I hope to read in the near future. My first read of his work was The Da Vinci Code and from that point there was no stopping of reading his works. Mr. Brown is ...

    I love brown's writing style and I will always love it. I can't say I enjoyed this book... It took me a while to finish it...And I have to admit I skimmed through some of the pages around the middle of the book... I'm just not into all this political drama and NASA stuff.. To put it in...

    My favorite Dan Brown novel. Just like his Robert Langdon series this is sometimes a little silly but, like the better Langdon novels, it's also a lot of page-turning fun. It's about NASA's discovery of a meteorite in the Arctic ice which seems to contain evidence of extraterrest...

    In this work, Dan Brown made the book more interesting because he kept a light on a different direction. Our world is already ruled in the shadow of political games. The realities know they can only read between the lines. ...
