The first review of a few novels I took with me to the ocean this past week. Some, sadly, were more un-put-down-able than others.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Really, I wanted to give this 2 1/2 stars, but I’ll settle for the full three. This started off well, and there certainly were a number of twists and turns throughout the tale, but by the end, even MY suspension of disbelief was stretched to a breaking point. I brought this along as a holiday read (gotta love being an academic and having the February break retitled as “Reading Week” — it borders on being a truism), and I’m glad I delved into it, but there are other Dan Brown-esque thrillers I’ve enjoyed more. Case in point, I recycled my copy of The Library of the Dead to lighten my luggage on the trek back up north. I didn’t do that with my copy of Angels & Demons.
