I was really disappointed in this book. I’ve read all his books so far and I’m a little tired of seeing the same characters over and over again. They have different names and nationalities but that’s about it.
Langdon’s story this time is too off the wall even for Brown. I’m alright with the plot to be a little convoluted but this one took the cake. You don’t even want me to start in on Sienna. Doesn’t Dan Brown know any women in real life? Is that why he has no ability to write one convincingly?
I can’t for the life of me figure out why it took him so long to write this? Just take Angels & Demon and The Da Vinci Code and alter the location (slightly) and the “puzzle” and you’re done.
My opinion is that Dan Brown wanted to spend some time in Florence and Venice and writing this book was his excuse.
PS- It’s always awkward when you put down a book feeling like the hero was the “madman” everyone was trying to stop. Just saying…
