For example, there is so much build-up surrounding NASA's discovery and conversation after conversation keeps filling in some details about the ramifications and importance of this discovery and then - New Chapter. You don't specifically find out what is happening until a few chapter later, but in the meantime there is something totally different going on in the other chapters.
This book is very interesting with it's science base, but it's not science fiction (which I am a big fan of) so the science is not as hard core as I would've liked, but still near-mindblowing.
My final comment was towards the end of the book when it was wrapping up I thought I was going to be let down with the ending because of everything that had unfolded, but then it didn't. I was satisfied with the ending. Towards the end of the book I thought I was definately going to upset at the whole book because of the last 75 pages; however, I wasn't upset at all. Just greatly satisfied and phenomenally entertained.
(By the way, this is my first Dan Brown book, I have not read the Davinci Code or any of his other books).

His opponent, Senator Sedgwick Sexton, is a powerful man with powerful friends and a mission: to reduce NASA's spending and move space exploration into the private sector. He has numerous supporters, including many beyond the businesses who will profit from this because of the embarrassment of 1996, when the Clinton administration was informed by NASA that proof existed of life on other planets. That information turned out to be premature, if not incorrect. (This story is true; I repeat, Dan Brown's research is very, very good.) The embattled president is assured that a rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice will prove to have far-reaching implications on America's space program. The find, however, needs to be verified.
Enter Rachel Sexton, a gister for the National Reconnaissance Office. Gisters reduce complex reports into single-page briefs, and in this case the president needs that confirmation before he ...
