Deception Point by Dan Brown
You might like it, if you are as dumb as the heroine.
To buy into this story you have to believe the heroine, who works in DC distilling intelligence reports into briefs, is so dumb that she constantly has to ask dopey questions because she can’t grasp what is going on around her or what anyone is saying. And she has to ask these dumb questions because the author thinks the reader is equally dumb and has to be lead by the hand to understand everything. Cut out the excessive explanations, the perpetual reviews of the action, and the ever-present (bad) foreshadowing (i.e. “He wasn’t worried. Yet.” “If only she had known what was ahead.”) and the book would be half the size but twice as good. I kept asking myself – how did he convince someone to publish this? Save your money. Angels and Demons is much better than this.
