it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery
Read in September, 2012

Before I started reading hundreds of books a year I used to read mysteries. I would browse the library shelves and pick up whatever generic mystery seemed interesting. In the bookstore I stumbled across Angels and Demons and loved it, the DaVinci code was also good, but for some reason I never tried to read this. Me, the math major, somehow overlooked this. So on a recommendation I tried it, and it drew me in from the start.

I loved learning about decryption and hung on every word in the beginning. I enjoyed the backstory of the main characters and enjoyed their interaction with each other. So all in all, a great set up. You want suspense? This book has it. In spades. Every chapter should end with "duh duh duh" because each chapter leaves you guessing and wanting more. I absolutely couldn't put this down. There are twists and turns, and one surprise after another. I actually thought at around page 300 that it would start to get stale, the action was wearing a bit thin, and I thought I knew what was going to happen. Wrong. So wrong, and a book that can turn around predictability and slap you in the face with new information is worth five stars to me. I am trying Deception Point next, and can't wait. I actually can't think of an action/suspense/mystery that is more up my alley than this book. It's been a long time since I've hung on every word in a book and was unable to put it down. It's a nice feeling.

Metalligazza IF YOU LIKED THIS ONE THEN IT IS SAFE TO SAY YOU WILL ENJOY DECEPTION POINT THE ACTION IS A LITTLE MORE MILITARY AND IT TOO HAS A BIG FACE SLAP TOWARDS THE END .
I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYBODY SLAGS OFF DAN BROWN I THINK HE SPINS A VERY GOOD YARN INTERLACED WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF TECH INFO YOU SHOULD ALSO READ THE LOST SYMBOL AS WELL.
