Caitlin Thank you! I felt the same wretched sort of feeling for this book. Really, just a terrible piece of writing.

Roxie Vegas The guy's name is Dan Brown. What do you expect?


message 3: by Lucinda (new)

Lucinda Reed I agree. Like the critique.

Jim Lane I have since reading this pile of drivel to the end wondered what possessed me to keep reading. It turns out it was the same thing that kept me watching "Lost" long after I really knew they were just making it up as they went along. Fortunately I read this before subjecting myself to "The DaVinci Code" and then wanting to give Dan Brown a second chance. Thanks for clearing that up!!

Heather Thomas I was wondering if I should call it quits. I'm about 100 pages in and am very disappointed in the character development or should I say lack of character development. Good review!

Lucifer Great, very funny review.

Megan Clearly there's something about his books that make people want to read them. I mean come on, he has plenty of money and two of his books have been made into movies. For the average person who doesn't know anything about the mistakes that he made, this book is great. Also, just wanted to point out that Hercule Poirot and Inspector Morse aren't authors. Neither is Agatha Christie a fictional detective.

William Ainsworth I think DB could learn a lot from Ms Christie; think of an ending and then work backwards. Formulaic writing at its very worst.

Chris Gager No "s" on the end of Hercule Poirot

That'd be a slight over-reaction!


message 13: by Hertzan (new)

Hertzan Chimera Megan,
you're right, neither of them are 'genre writers', I got over-enthusiastic writing the copy and forgot to check if any of it made sense. It'll stand though, as a proud monument to my utter editorial laziness.

:)

Andreea I've felt exactly the same. That the author is just mocking me!
