Deception Point by Dan Brown is an exciting tale of science, deceit and politics. Michael Tolland is an early version of the character that Brown later develops more fully, into internationally recognized, Mickey-Mouse-watch-wearing Robert Langdon, and Rachel Sexton is a version of the fit, beautiful female expert that will appear in the rest of Brown’s novels.
The story follows them as they’re pulled in to a huge secret with NASA, each because of their very niche specialties.
The book has the quintessential twists and turns, science and conspiracies that Dan Brown is known for, though the tone is just a little different from the rest, as it features different characters and a different setting (mostly the arctic) than the rest. It’s also notable that it’s pretty formulaic Brown, but without religion, which is usually a key pillar in his plot lines.
Would we recommend it?
Yes. The book is full of twists and turns and is overall a fun read. The structure and characters are a little similar to some of Brown’s later books, so maybe don’t read too much Dan Brown back-to-back. However, it’s a quick, easy and entertaining read.
