Bringing together similar concepts to Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity is Near with a wild adventure - you’ll learn about religious evolution - impact of technology on our world today and what 2050 will look like as we “merge” with tech by that point in time... the first 80% of the book is an incredible adventure looking for the killer of a brilliant mind - great illustration and intelligence went into every scene - I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time. I read this book entirely on my I
iPhone Plus on 2 different cross country flights - most enjoyable choice for sure!!!
Very interesting concept and the actual information pertaining to the reason for the book is most fascinating. But to get to that information you need to spend pages upon pages of endless tangents and droning of insignificant, partially related dribble. I hate discontinuing a book, but I may have to. If I’m in a not-so-good mood, this brings me lower, not higher.
This book is the equivalent to reading a recipe from a mother’s online blog. They’ll give you their life story from conception to how they were inspired to make the dish before providing the recipe.
If you like that sort of thing, then this is totally you!
I haven’t been able to put this book down. It feels a little slow at times but otherwise it’s a great story. I don’t understand the one star critical reviews of it. Lighten up already.
Best of his books in my opinion.
What a sad effort by an author I’ve thoroughly enjoyed up til now. This is not an intriguing history/art/symbology filled exciting drama. It’s a painfully slow atheist fueled scream, dragged out for hundreds and hundreds of pages of boring inner monologues, witless dialogue and plain silly characters, inhuman and human. Not remotely close to past storytelling standard.
Loved Dan Brown’s Langdon series until now. Horribly written and seriously, how much did CNN pay you.
Once I started it, I could not put it down; I finished it in 3 days. 😊
Dan Brown never fails to deliver. I was excited the whole time and failed to get a good nights rest in the 48hrs it took for me to finish. I couldn’t put it down and I was not disappointed. Who cares if my family was hungry. I was busy! Highly recommended.
This is the eternal Down Brown downfall. He took the formula from one of Crichton’s books and from then on he keeps writing the same book over and over again, just changing a few details... mostly the characters names. If you ever read any of Brown’s books, you unknowingly have read this one.
I enjoyed reading this novel, though it took me longer than I’d like to admit to finish it. It’s a good adventure for those that appreciate thinking about science, art, and religion.
I’d recommend it as an easy, laid-back read for anyone that’s enjoyed Dan Brown’s previous work.
