“I decided to read a Dan Brown book as I wanted to veer off from the books I have been reading recently, just for a change of pace. Deception Point did not fail to deliver! It was a fast paced, action based book that should be made into a motion picture. It was quite detailed with a whole lot of...”see full review » see other reviews »

“Very well written. Loved reading this book. Intense plot filled with thrilling mouth openers. I feel like a 4.5 stars would be a more fitting rating for this political thriller. Dan Brown certainly is a very talented writer. ”Ahmed wrote this review 10 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Taking place in modern times, this book narrates the struggle between a presidential candidate who is doing everything in his power to win, including criticism of NASA, and his daughter, Rachel Sexton, who is working with NASA to prove the existence of Extra-terrestial life. Rachel is called up to the Arctics to see a meteorite discovered by NASA, that has evidence of a space bug. Michael Tolland, a oceanographer, and Corky, an astrophysicist, assist her. When they find a possible flaw and try to pursue it, they are stalked by a trio of assassins, led by a secret commander, who will resort to anything, including murder to stop the study. Tolland and Rachel barely escape with their lives, and Corky is severely injured in this hostile wasteland. They are saved by a submarine and are flown back to DC, where they pursue the mystery further. This was a thrilling read, possibly my favorite book by him.”Gretchen wrote this review 3 weeks ago.

“I enjoyed it the first time I read this. Dan Brown is a master of cliffhangers; it's very hard to put his books down. Plus he makes the story interesting and almost believable...that is until you read it again a few years later like I did. Now, I find the plot a little unconvincing, particularly with the twist in the end. I think a different character would have made a better villain than the one he actually chose, but that's just me. It was still fun and fast-paced this time around and worth a look if you like thrillers.”spirolim wrote this review Tuesday, November 19, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“In this day and age of uncertainty and distrust in our government, I can't help but wonder how many announcements of remarkable discoveries have been made that aren't true, and what sorts of cover ups have the American people been fed... This book was fascinating and compelling - tough to put down!!”Penny S wrote this review Tuesday, October 8, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“ "Quando um novo satélite da NASA encontra um estranho objeto escondido nas profundezas do Ártico, a agência espacial aproveita o impacto da sua descoberta para contornar uma grave crise financeira e de credibilidade. O peso dessa revelação acarreta sérias implicações para a política espacial norte-americana e, sobretudo, para a iminente eleição presidencial.
Com o objetivo de verificar a autenticidade da descoberta, a Casa Branca envia a analista de inteligência Rachel Sexton para a desolada geleira Milne. Acompanhada por uma equipe de especialistas, incluindo o carismático pesquisador Michael Tolland, Rachel se depara com indícios de uma fraude científica que ameaça abalar o planeta.
Antes que Rachel possa falar com o presidente dos Estados Unidos sobre suas suspeitas, ela e Michael são perseguidos por assassinos profissionais controlados por uma pessoa que é capaz de tudo para encobrir a verdade. Em uma fuga desesperada para salvar suas vidas, a única chance de sobrevivência para Rachel e Michael é desvendar a identidade de quem se esconde por trás de uma conspiração sem precedentes.
Com fascinantes informações sobre a NASA, a comunidade de inteligência e os bastidores da política americana, sem falar na polêmica discussão sobre a possibilidade de vida extraterrestre, Ponto de Impacto revela o amadurecimento de Dan Brown como escritor, reunindo todas as qualidades que o transformariam em um fenômeno mundial com seu livro seguinte, O Código Da Vinci."”
“Yet another fast-paced thriller! The story can be summarized in say 2 - 3 lines, but what makes it a good read is its narrative quality. An out and out page-turner. The pre-climax, although, dragged a bit, but the climax was presented nicely. This is the first time I read a "no-Langdon" Dan Brown book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and now moving on to Digital Fortress!”Naveen Nair wrote this review Friday, September 6, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
