    1. I had to give it one star as I couldn't give it a half star!This one must be by far Ludlum's WORST book I have read (in this case listened to). If I hear "God Damn" or "cacophonous" one more time, I think I will stab someone in the eye!!!All it has are some big words that give the model of a gun, European places, and a story (or the lack of) that is absolutely abysmal. I want the hours of my life back that I had spent listening to this horrible "book". A secret govt. department, hiring on the be [...]


    2. I originally gave this book 2 stars, but after a weekend to think about it, I have downgraded it to one star. It would make an enjoyable if formulaic movie, but as a book it is pretty dreadful. It is long, with an overly complex plot containing several fairly serious contradictions. The author builds on a valid but hackneyed argument about the dangers of excessive private data collection and the explosion of surveillance in the aftermath of September 11, and throws in the usual corrupt politicia [...]


    3. The Prometheus Deception,is by far, one of the most intriguing and interesting books I have ever read. This was my first go at a book whose author has been acclaimed by adult readers. It did have drawbacks to its name, by being quite long, and the reader assuming that the book would never end. But if patience assists the reader, I feel the reader would truly love the book.The book revolves around Nick Bryson, a kind of spy working for an agency called the Directorate. The book starts with his bo [...]


    4. There was a time when I couldn't get enough of Robert Ludlum, but it's been way more than a decade since the last time I've read any of his novels. Like too much chocolate or a day spent in pajamas, all of a sudden I simply lost my taste for the enterprise--in this case his highly formatted, thrill-a-minute, repetitive plot lines. When I found this book at the back of one of my bookcases recently, I figured it had been long enough since I read any of his material so that perhaps what had previou [...]


    5. Okay, so Ludlum is in the category of "guilty pleasure" for me. I pick him up once or twice a year when I need some Adventure-ish escape, preferably in some exotic place and with a Conspiracy Theory attached.This one satisfied all the above requirements, though in the end I thought there were some plot holes and dangling story threads. The double-twist was predictable and the female characters, in true Ludlum style, remained underdeveloped. Still, though hardly in the category of the whip-cracki [...]


    6. I liked this one (like 90% of Ludlums). This one was written apparently just before my favorite, The Sigma Protocol (which was the last one Ludlum finished). Leyla reminded me of Khalehla in The Icarus Agenda, another character I liked. This one is scarily up to date in where it's set - written in 2000, before the whole 9/11 and the shampoo paranoia. So many of the horrors in this book, especially the surveillance, has happened to a scary degree in the real life I don't think Ludlum thought that [...]


    7. "The Prometheus Deception" is 1984 on steroids. Published in 2000, the author's prescience is both fantastic yet totally believable in light of recent headlines coming out of Washington, D.C and the NSA. If you care for your freedom of privacy, once you've read this book you will become terrified. It is a wild ride not into the future but into today's world of surveillance and all things technology.


    8. I love novels that remind me of movies, specifically espionage styles. This book travels the world many counrtires over. All of the characters are intertwined, and yet you discover this throughout the entire story rather than within only the first few pages. I believe the pace is perfect, as you are engaged for the whole duration. His character development allows you to become one with the individual and take his journey with him. You, too, are seeing the sights in the Middle East, Paris, and th [...]


    9. Ludlum thrills with high-action, complicated relationships, and intricate plots - there is no lack of tension or mystery here. Ahead of his time in predicting just where terrorism, surveillance, and many other scary realisms were heading, The Prometheus Deception describes our worst nightmares and then some. Ex-spy Nicholas Bryson believes he's out of the game, retired and hidden away at a university, until he finds himself pulled back in unexpectedly. Now he must rely on every trick he ever lea [...]


    10. THE PROMETHEUS DECEPTION, published in hardback in 2000 and in paperback a month after 9-11 basically offers a narrative blueprint for the WAR OF TERROR.He lays out in this book how to run a mostly Cyber War (a Surveillance War in the name of corporate profit and world domination) where there is no real enemy but the ghostly figures who're set up for specific terrorist events around the world sound familiar to anyone?Robert Ludlum implied that his knowledge of the way the insanely convoluted co [...]


    11. This was a pretty good spy novel (more 2 1/2 stars), fast paced with enough intrigue and plot twists to keep it interesting. I was bogged down in the minute descriptions of the weaponry and hyper detailed fight scenese writers attempt at sexy talkblah blah blah "her exquisite breasts"? Reminds me of the succulent flesh in the last book I read boys. Maybe this vernacular does something for them. I'll remember that for my next sexy letter to my husband.Several F bombs, war/terrorism/torture violen [...]


    12. I loved it! I like books that really engages you, mentally. Books that make you feel that you're a part of the story. Robert Ludlum took his time to create a moving picture in the reader's mind with The Prometheus Deception. I find that this is a great read that I will enjoy reading again.


    13. I could put every Ludlum book on my list. I enjoyed this author. I have read every book he has written. They are all good if you like espionage


    14. I am giving this one *** only for those who are particular fans of the political thriller genre; for other readers I would suggest this is more of a two-star book.The story is simple in its complexity: A superagent whose real name may or may not be Nick Bryson is taken out of retirement to fight against his former employer, the ultra-secretive 'Directorate' spy organisation which has gone bad. Or has it? Whom can he trust? What sinister conspiracy is driving the plot along at breakneck speed, fr [...]


    15. The plot of the Prometheus Deception reminded me of the idea behind the Bourne Trilogy. The similarities between Nick Bryson, who has to discover the truth about his past life, and Jason Bourne, who has to reconstruct his past following amnesia, are indeed striking. Both protagonists are lone fighters entangled in a web of conspiracies and their adversaries seem at first glance far more powerful. These motifs permeate most of Ludlum’s plots and the Prometheus Deception is no exception. Ludlum [...]


    16. Quite a whirlwind, neck-twisting plot. The end is a bit rushed, and some of the characters a bit typecast, but that's almost inevitable when you try to squeeze in a plot this complicated into one book.



    17. This is the second Robert Ludlum that I have read - the first being that abominable pig slob entitled "The Scarlatti Inheritance". By default, this book is vastly better, but it wasn't the best thriller I've ever read. For one thing, it was REALLY long. Of course, I can't criticize a book because of its length, it's just that it started to get boring after a while, monotonous. I listened to this on audiobook, and it was 16 discs. As a reference point, normal audiobooks are between 10 and 12 disc [...]


    18. CC1This book was excellent. Gives the perfect example of one person's obsession with total control. Without independent oversight freedom is lost. Perfectly greatly character development. Ludlum books can relate to any time. Can't wait to get to next one. Carl Clause

    20. Since I recently started reading Ludlum books this is one of the best ones yet. I admit that when I started reading it I thought it seemed similar to the Alias TV series which I loved. As the story progressed though I found it even better and even wondering if this was non-fiction. The details of the technology and "Big Brother" society on a global scale and references to the WTC as this was written a year before 9/11 could really make those that are paranoid even more fearful. The action is fas [...]


    21. UGH. I wanted to read this book because people rave about Ludlum, but it's such a MAN book. Every female character is described in painful detail as being impossibly attractive objects. At random times characters are liberally given random skills (speaking a dialect only spoken in a tiny village in the Italian Alps, miraculous nursing skills, etc). It's a surprise I could make it all the way through with all the eye-rolling I was doing


    22. This is a thrill of twists and turns that keeps one turning the pages until the very last page of the book. The conspiracies and counter-conspiracies that have the main character Nick Bryson are enough to have you thinking you are losing your mind. Imagine how the character must feel. A really compelling read by Robert Ludlum. Thriller, Spy, the ABC's of Intelligence Agencies and some really well thought out action.


    23. This book is a first of its kind for me, I am thrilled from start to end. Well, not exactly to the end because the book kinda lost me in the last 100 pages or so because suddenly the pace is extremely fast with little character development and harder to believe plot. But overall I am enjoying reading this book.


    24. I loved the Prometheus Deception. It was a real non-stop thriller and I've read it two or three times. It's my go to book when I want some action and great characters that manage to escape impossible circumstances with amazing feats of intelligence and brutality. The story is also extremely strong and very relevant to the 2000's.


    25. Very tense, police kind, cia and stuff , i was attached to the character of the agent specially after we discovered he has been double crossed by the same agency he use to work for


    26. Spoiler alert.How many impossibly life threatening situations can one spy survive? Quite a few, it seems. I was thoroughly disappointed in this book and, after 3/4 of the way into it, couldn't wait until it was over. I had to start skimming some of those never ending life threatening scenarios--the outcome of each was obvious. The story line was convoluted to the point where, after I finished reading the book, I had no idea why the main character was called out of retirement. Frankly, given the [...]


    27. The reason I did not like this book that much was because there was simply too much super, hero action in it that lead me to believe it simply wasn't true. I'm a HUGE 24 fan, so I'm all about it when Jack can dial his phone from the depths of a tower when there are times I can't even get reception in my house, sitting right next to my router! I'm all about it when Jack can fly a Cessna into the sunset and then allow his stow-away, George, to take over the control so Jack can bail, as the plane f [...]


    28. Robert Ludlum's books are always good and make you think of the possibilities of some very scary and real things.One of the other things that I like about his writing,even though this was a long book,for the very most part you did not get lost in what was going on


    29. MEH.I remember loving the Bourne novels, and enjoying a few other Ludlum books.This was just terrible- the most cliched lazy boring technothriller/espionage store I can imagine.
