Dan Brown, only much better

If you enjoyed Da Vinci Code, or any of Dan Brown's books, you owe it to yourself to try The Second Messiah. It's a sweeping novel with global ramifications. And the plot is not nearly as facile as Mr. Brown's books. The characters are more fully developed and their actions actually make sense. And plot points are not nearly so predictable. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read/listen. Be aware, it is an 'inspirational' novel, although that wasn't quite clear to me before I purchased it. It treads very lightly in that area, though, and I doubt that anyone would find that aspect off-putting. Still, you might want to now....

Finally, George Guidall's read is exceptional. I've been listening to audiobooks for 20+ years, and this is one of the best performances I've ever heard.

Could be better

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The whole story was rambling on and on. The idea and plot was good but the unraveling was tedious

What was most disappointing about Glenn Meade’s story?

The Story was not consistent. There were parts of it that was well written and then it rambled on. The plot and theory was intriguing but was lost in the ramble.

Which scene was your favorite?

I am afraid it was too vague for me to be enthralled by it. I would say the start of the story was good and then it was a saga..

Could you see The Second Messiah being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Hmmmm I really don't think so.

Any additional comments?

I LOVE Guidell and he did a great performance. It is ONLY due to him I finished this story. I wish it was better written. ( sigh )
