Honestly speaking, this was one of the most tiring books I’ve ever had to read. Even though it’s written by one of my favorite authors, this is my least favorite among all 4 books (the others being Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code and Digital Fortress.)
Deception Point talks about how a presidential campaign war brings about the death of some innocents and deadly government secrets. It’s a very complicated story that doesn’t turn out the way it looks at first glance. Though the story includes a sad lovestory turned good, the truth behind a not-so-good familial relationship, a supposedly interesting find from space found on Earth and other scientifically interesting things, Deception Point can be a very tiring read. Not only does it use too many scientific words and too many acronyms, the plot itself is very complicated.
I recommend this only to readers who are unafraid of big words and complicated heart-turning plots. You think the story is going one way, then suddenly it goes the opposite way. Deception Point is full of surprises, for readers who are unafraid to challenge themselves. It is also comes highly recommended to sci-fi enthusiasts and people besotted with political and scientific intrigues. At the same time though, the book can become frustrating, and can lead readers to discontinue reading it.
This book received this rating because despite it having a wonderfully surprising and unique plot, during many times within the story, it dragged the reader on to the point of exhaustion.
