Overview

The Book of Fate by Brad Meltzer, Scott Brick

"Six minutes from now, one of us would be dead. None of us knew it was coming."

So says Wes Holloway, a young presidential aide, about the day he put Ron Boyle, the chief executive's oldest friend, into the president's limousine. By the trip's end, a crazed assassin would permanently disfigure Wes and kill Boyle. Now, eight years later, Boyle has been spotted alive. Trying to figure out what really happened takes Wes back into disturbing secrets buried in Freemason history, a decade-old presidential crossword puzzle, and a two-hundred-year-old code invented by Thomas Jefferson that conceals secrets worth dying for.

I couldn't put it down. Each chapter left me wanting more. Being a 32nd degree Mason, I was glad to see thay it wasn't another Masonic conspiracy novel. In contrast, it was a well written mystery which leaves a lot to your imagination when it comes to the actual workings of our national government. Now that I've completed The Book Of Fate, I can get a little sleep before I begin The Book Of Lies.

I've read all but his first two and found this one the most entertaining. The characters are sympathetica and real and the plot gets more than complicated enough to keep me guessing for a long while. The book is being marketed with references to the Masons. The plot stands just fine without them so I figure the publisher's marketing department was searching for the next Da Vince Code which this novel, thank goodness, is not. Can't wait for the next one, Brad!

This book is a suspenseful thrill ride and psychological character study all in one. If that's not enough, you'll also learn facts about the Freemasons and Washington, D.C. that weren't even revealed in 'National Treasure.'

I am a new fan of this author, his books and now his show "Decoded".....and I very highly recommend his books....you won't be disappointed! : )

This story was another okay read from Brad Meltzer. From the description on the cover I thought I was going to read a story about Masons, codes and the book would be a thrill to read. The Masonic plot never really developed and the ancient codes was a big let down. I suppose this book was marketed to perk up all the readers that enjoyed Dan Brown's "The DaVinci Code" and they would step up and buy this book. The marketing ploy worked on me, because I bought it. In summary, its not a terrible read, but with a little more time spent on developing the story by the author, the book could have been a great read.

I have been reading for years, books like James Patterson, Dan Brown, and these are THE BEST!! Cant believe I just found out about him. His website is great too!! I read the latest and now i am going to start with the first. CANT WAIT! These books make me want to visit Washington D.C.! And take this book along as my tour guide!!

I enjoyed the characters in this book, but the plot was a little telling especially if you have read Brad Meltzer books in the past. The twist at the end was one I was anticipating, but did not put into place until later in the book. All in all, it was a great "read" and held my interest. Scott Brick did a very good job with the reading, as well.

The book was the fluff I expected, but the Nook version of this was AWFUL. There were bugs all over the place - skipping pages, repeating pages, some that were missing entirely. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't so aggravated by the device.

A curious premise mixed with some fact. Meltzer is always a good read.

Convoluted, boring, and way too long!! I kept hoping it would get better and read all the way through. Should have turned on the TV instead.

The beginning was a little slow. It took a while for all the characters to come together. The final 200 pages were most exciting. I liked Nico - very mysterious! Every now and then some funny dialog. A good drama thriller.

I made the mistake of reading "The Inner Circle" the "The Fifth Assassin" before reading t"The Book Of Fate." Reading this book before the other two gives one the back story for the plot lines for Brad's last two books.
