Good display of researching computers and his views of religion. Sadly lacking in plot twists and the main character using his talents to figure things out. Very plodding at times. Not the level expected of Dan Brown.

The plot line was great. I ended up skimming the excruciating detail on modern architecture and art to get to the story. I even considered quitting a couple of times. It wasn't necessary and delayed the story.

A frightening look at what could be where we are going. However, the one thing I personally love about Professor Langdon is somewhat missing in this episode. Where are the symbols and clues that overwhelmed in previous books? I loved learning about the museums, castles and architecture of Barcelona, but missed the clues and symbology. Overall a good read, just...lacking the aha moments.....

Once again Robert Langdon and a beautiful woman save the world. Where have I read this before? Oh yes, Ian Fleming and James Bond.

A demanding read while at the same time creative and entertaining . I was so relieved to fine the underling question, the third question if I might be so bold. I will expect Spain to be the benefactor of increased tourism. I enjoyed exploring many of the buildings and spaces via research while reading this novel. It enriched the story, adding to the intrigue. Well done Dan Brown, another best seller.

More of an art appreciation book than anything else. Foreseeable ending.

This is by far Brown's worst work. Barely any plot, boring characters, an ending that is painfully obvious after the first couple chapters, and over half the pages are descriptive filler. Brown should personally refund everyone who bought this awful book. If only he could refund the time wasted reading it.

I forced myself to finish this book. It was overly wordy. I expected much more from Dan Brown.

So disappointed in this latest Dan Brown book. His first books were such great reads but his last few books were must less so. I found myself skipping paragraphs just to be done with chapters and the ending and "the reveals" were so incredibly PC it was almost laughable. I really can't recommend this - not at $14.99.

Wonderfully paced, with characters that surprise. Several times I thought the book ended, only to be rewarded with yet more chapters. Thought provoking doesn’t begin to describe!

I was looking forward to this book but after reading 200 pages it is slow moving prompting me to snooze big time.

Very disappointed. Boring and not like his other book.

I have enjoyed Mr. Brown's previous books, and looked forward to this one for the last few months. Was excited to see over 500 pages, and I was ready to dig into the story, but after 150 pages or so it felt like it was stuck in neutral. It was taking what seemed like forever to build to this big announcement, but that was still hundreds of pages away. I didn't feel that same "can't put it down" that I have with his other books, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt because of his past successes. Finally got to the climax only to find (spoiler alert) something can start from nothing if given enough time and computers are taking over the world. Watch a few episodes of Star Trek and one would already know this. I hoped for some plot twist toward the end, but other than a love angle between a king and priest ( hardly original), there was nothing. Not what I hoped for

Throughout the book it seemed that he was searching for a plot. In the end all he was able to conclude was, watch out for AI, it can really mess with your life. The book was too disjointed, well below the quality of his previous efforts.

Just another tired old Christians are stupid, science is smart novel. I really expected more. He even trotted out the old HAL computer type.

This book was a disappointment to me. I felt as though I was reading a lecture instead of a novel. The ending left me flat. Robert Langdon hasn't had a good adventure since The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.

Who murdered Edmond Kirsch? Atheist, unbelievable scientific mind and harbinger of the end of religion. Did the Church conspire to have him killed to stop his presentation of Who we are and where are we going?

Mystery, history, philosophy, religion, travelogues, well written, suspense, future, technology. A lot of nonfiction disguised as fiction. Read this book before you go to Barcelona. It will make you more observant.
