Enjoying read, but the science and characters are a bit off
on 14 October 2005
While I have enjoyed all of Dan Brown's stories, I found Deception Point somewhat unbelievable and far-fetched on some of the adventures and science. For a work of fiction, an adventure and thriller, it meets the requirements, so long as you don't delve too deeply into the facts. The abilities of the characters also doesn't quite meet the mark, somewhat exaggerated and not in the realm of reality. I discovered a new thriller recently whose characters (unique) and strong science and facts, provided me with more thought-provoking ideas - Fusion, by Bruce Huntly. Huntly's techno-thriller has ideas and characters you can enjoy and take seriously, and he provides a possible solution to some of today's energy problems. I would recommend Fusion as a serious addition for readers of Dan Brown and Michael Crichton. Deception Point, a good book but I felt fell short on some of my expectations.
