    "I enjoy the entire Robert Langdon series. This is the book that stated it all. The story is gripping and engaging and Dan Brown's writing style is perfect for me. His chapters are short and thats great for me because I don't like to stop a session in the ,iddle of a page. Brown's novels allow me to read at my pace without ever having to rush or take a bigger chunk than I can handle in the given timeframe."

    "Dan brown, we all know him, author of many wonderful, thought provoking books. This one is no different. It really gets the reader in deep thought while it takes them on a very interesting journey. It really takes a high level of understanding to really get every little detail of what this book has to offer, but its refreshing in that regard."

    "Altar of Eden is an interesting book that explores the concepts of what it means to be human, but from a Sci-Fi/Action Jurassic Park type of standpoint. The action in the book, along with the author's gripping writing style, kept me moving along at a fairly quick pace - I finished the book in 3 days. If I had to say one gripe, it's that I felt like the characters, Lorna and Jack, were just basic "characters with bad pasts" and the author didn't really delve too deep into the individual personalities too much.

    "Maybe the author is really really smart, too smart for me, but honestly, the story and characters in this book are so bland and lifeless. It could not even keep my attention. This guy might be a writer but he is not a people person at all. This one falls flat."
