Deception Point by Dan Brown

Pocket Books (Simon & Schuster), 558 pages

I’ve finally read all four Dan Brown books, and I can say that Deception Point is the least impressive of all four. As with all Dan Brown books, Deception Point is brimming with interesting facts and information–relayed to you the way you wish your Science teachers had.

Brown now focuses his vast knowledge on the deep space. Packed with conspiracies (as with all Dan Brown plots), this book gives a peek, and questions about extra terrestrial life, the all mighty US Government, NASA, and the NRO.

The token heroine this time is Rachel Sexton, an intelligence analyst for NRO, whose Senator father is running for the position of POTUS (President of the United States of America). It’s refreshing to see a heroine who is not as stubborn or feisty as Dan Brown’s other female characters.

This is a book that I finished in 3 days, and I can sum it up in 3 words: Damn Irritatingly Predictable!

If Brown keeps on using the same “unexpected” twists (hint: if you’ve read Digital Fortress, you may as well have read Deception Point), he may unsurprisingly lose the interest of his followers.

  1. hehe, i kinda feel the same way about dan brown. i’ve only read da vinci code, but it was enough. maganda lang yung information overload nya, although even those “facts” often have to be taken with a grain of salt..

    =)

  2. Hi, Jean! I had this Dan Brown phase last year. I read all three books but this because, like you said, I felt that it’s more or less similar to Digital Fortress. Though A&D and The Da Vinci Code are more popular than Digital Fortress, I found the latter easier to read than the two books. But my favorite among the three is still Angels & Demons.

  3. yep, his stuff are predictable. pfft.

    oh. hi! 🙂

  4. Totally agree. If you have read Digital Fortress you have read Deception Point, and vice versa.

  5. you have no right to do that your such a idiot one!
