Meteorite Deceit

Yes! It's that time. I have read my very first Dan Brown book. Amazing. I think i have came away thinking more about what is happening in the world than any other. Fantastic! This is truly what i would say is a masterpiece, every detail refined to perfection. I believe that i have learnt so much, and it has made me think on how oblivious i am to the world and what type of scandals go on behind our backs.

Genre: Techno-Thriller, Conspiracy
Publisher: Corgi
Year Of Publish: 2001
Pages: 592

Deception is in the air, can you feel it?
But of course as ever the criticisms will be involved within this review. Although today i'm in quite a good mood, so that would probably make the rating higher than intended. Beware! I have decided that i'm going to start it off with how much success that this author has already without me saying anything. First of all, he has two film adaptations based upon his work and he is having another based upon his fourth book 'Inferno' which is due for release in 2015. But not only this, his main character within that series, 'Robert Langdon' is portrayed by the actor Tom Hanks. Who if you already know has been in many films such as: Forrest Gump; Saving Mr Banks; Philadelphia; Saving Private Ryan; Toystory and Captain Phillips. So, i guess very well known. (A little bit of an understatement)

Onto the Criticisms!

It is a huge book. From when i first began the novel to when i had finally finished it, it took around 11 days to complete. Way out of my normal reading routine! When looking at books this huge you sort of become a little demotivated. But i got through it and survived- at least that is a postitive thing. I may have wondered a bit with my mind whilst reading the book, because in some places it did feel like the type of writing style you get from from free ebooks. But don't worry I'm going now onto the positives. Yay!


Well it definitely gives some revelant information. I learnt quite a bit, which you just know from reading alot , you don't always get well detailed books that you could take to the bank! But this, well it would be easy to remember points made. Maybe I'll even remember this for a very long time!Although the main point about this is that it wasn't something that i would normally read, therefore by trying out Dan Brown himself, it has made me think twice at giving all these well recognised authors a shot. (I'm quite mean, i tend to like the hidden jewels!)

Overall, i found that i am definitely going to carry on with reading the other five books, which at the moment it is Digital Fortress so that will be interesting to see if it's better than the last. I just hope that it doesn't all go down hill from here! My final rating for this book is 4 stars- very generous today!

Once again, it's that time to say goodbye. But don't worry, it's less than a week till you hear from me again. I'm not going anywhere yet!
