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.
