A fast paced story with several intense build ups to speedy action. This book saw action in Spain and America. Plenty of trails to suspects for the reader to follow. Some complex mathematical sequences and problems to solve. Codes and code breaking being at the heart of the storyline. A huge computer gets a code to break and threatens national security. The key to abort the worm which penetrates the system outwits the top encrypting brains and the suspense goes to the wire. Fewer links to ancient texts and secrets than some of Dan’s other books, but still enjoyable.
I did enjoy this, lots of characters all mixed up and I didn’t guess who the main bad person was as there were several candidates. Dan even managed a small amount of eating and drinking, not bad! One of his main characteristics is the timescale of his books and they can be quite exhausting to read.
Having read a few books similar to Dan Brown’s style recently, I thought I’d better get on with this book which has been sitting in my “To read” stack for a while. I was glad to see the heroine managed to drink a cup of coffee during the 180 pages that I’ve read so far. I laugh at the speed of Dan’s books where the characters never have time to eat, drink or sleep, let alone visiting the W.C!!!!
So far this book involves the race for the White House and alien life forms discovered by NASA. I’m expecting lots of twists and turns and am considering the aliens might all be a hoax if the title is giving us a clue.
Not getting enough hours in the day to read, write, work and be a wife and mother. School holidays next week, yeah! A lie in!!
A good book similar to Dan Brown stories, but spread over a more realistic time span. A search for a cure to HIV and AIDS crosses with those who want to find the true resting place of Alexander the Great. There’s a fictional state of nations led by a strong female character who wants to follow in the footsteps of the Greek hero and there are some nasty little robots which spew Greek Fire, just one weapon of choice from this intriguing tale.
