Pointed Deceit

Refreshingly different, Dan Brown’s “Deception Point” is nothing like the codebreaking, church politics and historical myths that Dan has served in his past tales. The story is set in the backdrop of the USA presidential elections and portrays the strong arming, below the belt tactics used by the candidates. Dan spins a realistic yarn of deceit. Then suddenly a shocking scientific discovery is made which sends the whole world into a tizzy. The astonishing drama unravels slowly but expands to cover a subject so vastly untouched, yet speculated by many enthusiasts worldwide….. The surprising twist towards the end left me confused. The master storyteller has boldly showcased desperate academicians and manipulative politicians auctioning off Uncle Sam’s seat of power. The story moves forward at a considerably relaxed pace as compared to what Dan has authored previously. This is the longest of all four of Dan Brown’s novels. The author starts out good and his words have virtually painted scenes in my mind as if I were watching a movie, but I felt that the story lost some of its fizz towards the end, it got a bit predictable. The novel is nice but pales in comparison to the DVC and AnD, although its much in league with Digital Fortress.

  1. This is for you Poonam, the best that I can do without giving the story away. Its not as exciting at the DVC, but what I liked about it was that it was something very different from what the author usually writes about. Now that I come to think of it: Dan Brown’s a good author, but what made DVC and AnD truly facinating was all that historical metadata accompanying them.

  2. Very interesting. Thanks dizzy. 🙂 Yep the storyline doesn’t seem as strong as the others…we will see. 🙂 Agree that it is still a good read?

  3. Hmmmmm…. yep I surely agree that its a good read… the story structure is somewhat like Digital Fortress, u liked it… but I didnt exactly adore it…….
