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:

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 read -- I certainly wouldn't say that. But they are successful and I have to confess, even I like them, and when it comes to books I am Picky with a most definite capital P.

I liked a lot this novel!


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.

Back then in 2009, I found this novel by chance or fate.

By then, I already knew who Dan Brown was (it's not like I was living in cave, hehehe) but I still have to read his way popular books with the character of Robert Lan

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 some acceptable literary decency. In 2 pages he found it ok to mention coffee 5 times. No, not fun tidbits about the history of coffee but just as action filler: 'blah blah blah,' he said while he stirred his coffe ...more

أول ما يلفت النظر في هذه الرواية هو أسلوبها السينمائي، ليس فقط في بناء الرواية وطريقة القص، بل في بناء الشخصيات نفسها..
أغلب كتابات دان براون تشعرك أنها كتبت خصيصاً بهدف تحويلها إلى أفلام، وقد تعاظم هذه الإحساس لدي مع روايتي "الحصن الرقمي" و"حقيقة الخديعة" بشكل خاص، الأولى من خلال المشاهد الختامية فيها والثانية من خلال شخصية "الممثل المساعد" كما أحب أن أسميه، وهو مساعد البطل خفيف الظل، الذي يبرع في استدرار الضحك من خلال تصرفاته الخرقاء وتعبيراته التلقائية وهو بالطبع أكثر شخصية تتعرض للضرب!

أشار المؤلف في بداية الرواية إلى أن كل التقنيات و الأسلحة الموصفة موجودة فعلا ... و نشرت الرواية عام 2001 لذا و بعد انتهائي لا يسعني سوى أتساءل في عام 2012 ما حجم ما وصلت إليه ناسا و لا نعلم عنه شيء ؟ و لأي درجة من التطور وصلت التقنيات التي تستخدمها القوات الأمريكية ...
و على لسان مدير ناسا في الأحداث بالطبع أنه يوجد تأخر مقداره اثنتي عشر سنة بين ما يمكن أن تبنيه الحكومة و بين ما يعلم عنه الشعب ...

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!

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 totally see this being made into a movie). It's not necessarily a bad thing I guess, just not to my personal taste. Also, if you've read other books by him you'll know what to expect: a male and a female protagonist, a mys

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 by the sudden and unexpected plot twists. And frustrated at the stupidity of human simpleness when reasoning possible motives for the death of their comrades or whatever.

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 like that the plot moves around in scenery from the Arctic to Washington, DC and a few points in-between keeping the action flowing and the characters moving around instead of being static in one place.

رواية مذهلة ، كمية معلومات مهولة ، و طريقة سرد رائعة و تشويق و إثارة لأقصى الحدود ، عمل عظيم جدا و كتجربة أولى لى مع أعمال دان براون أقدر أقول انها تجربة ناجحة جدااا .

لكن لي ٣ تعليقات :

الاول : الرواية دي تصلح انها تكون فيلم اكتر منها كرواية و أنا متأكد انها لو اتحولت لفيلم هيكون فيلم ناااجح جدا

الثانى : بلا شك ان الرواية مشوقة جدا لكن كان في التشويق دا عيب واحد ، و كأن دان براون أدرك فرط التشويق الموجود فى الرواية فكان بيضيف فقرات مملة ولا ليها أى لازمة حقيقية إلا أنها تعطل القارئ كام ثانية على

رواية مفعمة بالاثارة زاد من جمالها ذلك الخيال المرتبط بالتكنولوجيا وتلك المعلومات التقنية التي وظفها دان براون ضمن نسق منظم وجميل . لا يخلو الكتاب من نقد مبطن وايضا صريح لامريكا وذلك الاسراف الذي يضيع هباء من اجل الهوس الفضائي والغلو فيه يعيب الرواية تلك الاطالة التي يكثر فيها الكاتب من التفاصيل التي بعضها لا تفيد القارئ وسوف ينساها باي حال بعد الانتهاء من قراءتها ولكن بشكل عام الرواية جذابة وتستحق القراءة وهي مشوقة لآخر مدى.

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 little science to base his book on but "Deception Point" is about logic and statistical accuracy which he didn't research at all. The holes in these scientists' logic made the book unreadable.

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 made into series. Perhaps that's a good thing because too much of a good thing can make the magic disappear, but I think I could live with one or two more Michael Tolland book.

"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 rhythm of the novel is frantic and the plot of the essential "conspiracy" of Dan Brown's books for me is one of the best and most interesting. I have always felt a great attraction to thrillers in which politics and
نسبتا روان و جالب بود ولی یک جاهایی اش زیادی خیالی بود.مثلا این که رئیس جمهور آمریکا انگار کاری جز رسیدگی به ناسا و سرنوشت سه تا غیرنظامی نداشت!!و هی اتفاقی جان به دربردن های شخصیت های اصلی داستان منطق روایی نداشتند ولی خب در این سبک کتاب ها عنصر اتفاق نقش پررنگی دارد.
آخرهای داستان یک غافلگیری خیلی جالب داشت هرچند آن هم خیلی منطقی نبود ولی واقعا آدم را حیرت زده می کرد.
پرداخت خوبی داشت ولی شخصیت پردازی ها ضعیف بودند.
به عنوان سرگرمی کتاب خوبی بود و ترجمه ی روانی هم داشت.

Deception Point by Dan Brown

I read 'The Da Vinci Code' & 'Angels & Demons'. I quite enjoyed them. 'Deception Point', published in 2001 is another story (no pun intended). I could only stomach 30 pages before i threw in the towel. What a load of unmitigated, illogical, wooden, cliched rubbish. But i'll waste another 20 minutes out of my life to tell you why.
