Deception Point Reviews

  • Alex Duncan

    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!

    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 Langdon. (While I already watched the two film adaptations done so far)

    However, I found interesting to read this book since I noticed that the story involved NASA.

    I am a huge fan of NASA, maybe an indirect result of being a fan of

    , I don´t know, maybe even it can be due to being even before fan of

    and

    . The main point is that I admire a lot to NASA.

    And I am still a great fan of anything related with NASA.

    In fact, one of my fondest memories is when finally I was able to visit the Kennedy Space Center. And even bought a jacket of those (green-like with NASA and Space Shuttle patches) the astronauts wear when they aren't using, well... space suits! :P

    Here, you will find a very good story about the possibility of finding alien life. But maybe not in the way that you were expecting. But a more realistic scientific approach. I liked a lot the way of how Dan Brown proposed his idea of the finding of alien life, since it can be easily the way as it will happen in real life.

    I think that a proof of how good is this book (at least to me) is that it's a real dark story, full of dangers and deceptions (it's on the title!) related to NASA and since I admire the institution but the story is presented in such smart and plausible way that I could embrace the tale with open mind, understanding the intended bottom line in the book. Since after all, one thing is any organization and its inspiring goals, and other the people which manage it, that after all, they are just human beings.

    This book is written in way that if you are fan of Michael Crichton books, you will like this one too. It has a narrative style so engaging that I enjoyed a lot the reading experience.

    The writing style of Dan Brown is fantastic and I enjoyed the whole experience of reading the book, even more since in some novels you have a very good main plot but some dull secondary plot and/or scenes that you feel "dragged" when you have to read those chapters, but in my personal experience with the novel, I enjoyed to read the whole book with all its plots.

    If you like techno-thrillers, NASA-related novels and/or Dan Browns books, certainly you will enjoy to pick this novel.

    Highly recommended.

    Very good and engaging, because it's by Dan Brown, but not as great as Inferno or The Daily Vince Code. Actual rating 3.8

    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.

    Digital Fortress is the first one I've reread

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.

    Digital Fortress is the first one I've reread -- I read it yesterday. Coming straight from that into Deception Point, I've noticed very quickly that Dan Brown recycles description/emotional response.

    "Although she had practically lived in Crypto since its completion three years ago, the sight of it still amazed her. The main room..." - Digital Fortress

    "As Rachel made her way into the maze of bustling corridors beyond, she was amazed that even after six years she was still daunted by the collosal scope of this operation. The agency..." - Deception Point

    "Susan waited for the punchline, but it never came." - Digital Fortress

    "Rachel waited for the punchline. It never came." - Deception Point

    All his characters might as well be the same people -- David Becker (Digitial Fortress) might as well be Robert Langdon (Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code) -- ordinary people caught up in higher things, in over his head and things somehow work out fine. Susan Fletcher (Digital Fortress) is, like Rachel Sexton (Deception Point) a professional woman, pretty, the best in her field, similarly in over her head and somehow coming out okay.

    Also, the infodumps get terribly annoying. A brief bit of dialogue and then an absolute shedload of explanation. Another characteristic of Dan Brown's novels -- all very formulaic, as I said.

    But hey, it's a formula that works.

  • İntellecta

    In this work, Dan Brown made the book more interesting because he kept a light on a different direction. Our world is already ruled in the shadow of political games. The realities know they can only read between the lines.

    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

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 coffee. Multiply that by 5 (some instance of someone using, gasp, cream, or sugar) and 2 minutes have been sucked from your life. And you will feel it. Unless you're an idiot.

    I admit I stopped at page 140. It was a marathon of elementary torture. I started it one night and ended it the same. I didn't read 140 pages because I was thrilled, I read it because it took that long for Dan Brown to get to the premise of the effing book. And that isn't even that interesting. Enjoy, idiots.

    This is the third book by Dan Brown that I have read (the other two being

    and

    ) 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

    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 mystery, lots of conspiracy theories, dangerous situations to survive miraculously from, and a twist at the end. This time though, we are not dealing with religious sects but with the NASA, the CIA and the government.

    Like I said, this formula isn't necessarily a bad thing, and I'm guessing Dan Brown fans will like this book. But I must admit I found it a little boring and predictable, so I can't recommend it.

    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:

    How To Make A Guaranteed Bestseller in Fifteen Minutes or Less

    -1 intelligent, bookishly handsome man who in no way is supposed to be Dan Brown of course not why do you ask

    -1 intelligent, bookishly handsome man who in no way is supposed to be Dan Brown of course not why do you ask

    -1

    intelligent, preferably foreign woman who has an IQ of like a billion but the important thing is she is hot and has very low standards as far as men go (see protagonist)

    -5 exotic locations, more if you prefer

    -25 full pages of technical/historical/whatever background information that serves only to show the audience how goddamn smart the author is

    -3 conspiracy theories found after 5-minute Google search

    -8 death-defying situations and improbable escapes

    -1 villain of cartoon-level evilness

    -3 OMG SO SCANDOLOUS revelations that will ROCK THE FUCKING WORLD

    Blend until well combined (or not so well combined, whatever) bake at 350 degrees until it can be adapted for the screen in five minutes or less, serve hot to adoring public on plates made of $100 bills.
