First, there is the book. Suddenly Dan Brown's books look tight, well-written and plausible -- by comparison. The language is painful, the leaps in the story incredible. When I though it couldn't get any worse, it did!
Then there is the narrator. I hope this was his first effort. In any case, I'd suggest that he not quit his day job. Of course, with material like this, I don't think anyone could do very well.
As I said in the subject line, this book deserves a negative rating. Save your money and time, give this book a miss.

Maybe I've been spoiled by so many excellent writers and narrators available at audible.com, but this was below my minimum expectations. The dialog was just awful -- it's hard to tell if that's the fault of the wooden narration or the author's inability to write convincing dialog. Much of the story that occurs in the current time is shockingly implausible but the description of the future is downright absurd: a mail-man delivering packages and letters, written books abounding, scientists using palm handhelds...
I've never seen such a high percentage of 5 starts (6/8) for any audio book (especially with the other reviews panning the work). You should wonder about the authenticity of those 5 start reviews.
