I only need to say this once: Dan Brown’s Deception Point is better than The Da Vinci Code.

Welcome to a slightly different topic. Now I like reading (not as much as I like spinning a yarn) but it sure does tickle me fancy. This next little piece is about the 3 awesome books Dan brown wrote before The Da Vinci Code.
This man here is Dan Brown:
He wrote some pretty awesome books and I am pretty sure he tried to make that Robert Langdon character a homage to himself.
Want to know what was heaps better?
This book was great. You can feel the cold, cold ice as you read through it. You can marvel at the weird science-y horse-shit that he talks about.
Here is a quick Blurb:
When a new NASA satellite spots evidence of an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory…a victory that has profound implications for U.S. space policy and the impending presidential election. With the Oval Office in the balance, the President dispatches White House Intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to the Milne Ice Shelf to verify the authenticity of the find. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic academic Michael Tolland, Rachel uncovers the unthinkable: evidence of scientific trickery — a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy.
But before Rachel can contact the President, she and Michael are attacked by a deadly team of assassins controlled by a mysterious power broker who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Fleeing for their lives in an environment as desolate as it is lethal, their only hope for survival is to find out who is behind this masterful ploy. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all.
Pretentious reviewer comment:
I first read this book in high-school and was blown away by how action packed it was for a book. At the same time, I was supposedly learning about technology, what could be possible, and the secret things the government had up their sleeves. Dan kicks of most of his books with a disclaimer about how he did a lot of research into the world his characters live in and when you are like 12 years old, your imagination gets the better of you and you kind of fall into the fantasy world that he crafts.
Or if You’re 102 you know not to take life too seriously and just act like you’re 12 all the time. The thing with Dan Brown’s writing is that it is a lot like JK Rowling’s in the sense that it is very easy to read. There isnt much more to say about this book. Except maybe that Digital Fortress was even better.
