Deception Point

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Dan Brown

Narrated By: Richard Poe

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: June 2004

Duration: 14 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and Inferno and the “master of smart thrills” (People) comes a “rocket-fast thriller” (Vince Flynn) about an astonishing NASA discovery that unravels a deadly conspiracy that leads all the way to the White House.

When a NASA satellite spots evidence of an astoundingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory—one that could have profound implications for US space policy and the impending presidential election. With his re-election hanging in the balance, the President sends White House Intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to the Milne Ice Shelf to verify the authenticity of the find.

Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic academic Michael Tolland, Rachel uncovers the unthinkable: evidence of scientific trickery. Before she can contact the President, she and Michael are attacked by a deadly team of assassins controlled by a mysterious power broker who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Fleeing for their lives in an environment as desolate as it is lethal, their only hope for survival is to find out who is behind this masterful ploy. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all in this “taut, fast-paced, barn-burner of a book” (St. Petersburg Times).

    This was a very good book. Lots of twists and turns. Very refreshing to not have an idea how the author is going to end the book. Well worth the time to listen!

    I have had to stop the book in the first 30 minutes because the narrators salivating is absolutely out of control. I have never once heard a narrator so awful and skin crawling in my life. He would be fine if someone had done their job in sound isolation but this is absolutely unbearable

    I was hesitant to get this book due to some of the lukewarm reviews that it received. But I am a fan of Dan Brown and decided to give it a try anyway. I was not disappointed. The ending had a twist that I wasn't expecting - I thought I had it figured out, but was wrong and surprised.

    This was a great story that kept me going throughout the whole thing. I am glad I had this on audio, burnt onto CDs I could use in the car - if I had it in paperback, I would have lost sleep because this would have been one I could not put down. It made me look forward to my next drive! Lots of action and intrigue. It would make a good movie, but we all know the book is always better, right? ;)

    I thought the story moved along at a good pace. Some things were pretty predictable--convenient rescues, etc. I basically knew who would die, who would live, who were the bad guys, etc., but there were definitely some surprises. It was a lot of fun, and I applaud the research that must have been done before writing this book. I also felt the reader was only so-so. As I listened in my car, I heard the reader swallowing or breathing or something. It was creepy. But I did enjoy the plot.

    Story is 5 stars. Reader is 1 Star. This was a great story. The downside to this is the reader. The reader can be heard licking his lips alot and lots of heavy breathing. Very annoying especially if you listen with headphones.
