i actually feel quite sorry for dan brown. he wrote a nice, little fictional
mystery that was full of little clues and puzzles (and, even though i dont think he's shakespeare, i do find the pace of his stories spot on) then it exploded! yes, i think the book is over-hyped but that isn't his fault. anyway, there have been so many times when ive picked up a thriller or a muder-mystery and been utterly disappointed. i was quite pleased the da vinci code delivered what it promised and gave me a couple of days of pure escapism.
you wouldnt pick up a jackie collins thinking it was a jane austen. so why do the same with dan brown...? 7.5/10
