Our Review of The Vatican Secret
It is an alternative option for Dan Brown novels. I will give that to the book. Lots of historical and interesting facts. Foreign locales and history chapters alongside a chase around the globe to save humanity. I LOVED THE PLOT OF THE STORY. I think it was a pretty exciting theme to pick and work and I did find a lot of facts and stuff said in the book amazing and interesting.
I had this on the audiobook. This book although takes on the historical information journey, it also does devote a major chunk to the action sequences and the formidable alpha star which is our central character. So it does switch between showing a James Bond-like hero and a world on fire sequence on the other end.
Technically the book has all the aspects that would make the book exciting but maybe it was the audiobook or the general tone of the book that I couldn’t immersive myself. While the chase and revelations were exciting, the fillers and in-and-out characters were a bit too much for my taste. But honestly, I feel the book has a spark to it and maybe I was at a bad spot or time to pick up the book that I couldn’t find the wow factor in it
For a Dan Brown fan, this should be a good pick and for somebody who loves conspiracies and secrets, this book should provide good fodder to incite those grey cells 🙂 so basically what I am saying is that even though I am not overly excited about the book, I don’t think the book is bad either. It is good and has elements to keep it going.
