really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, ebook
Read from January 19 to 23, 2010

** spoiler alert ** I was expecting the worst given the critics' and readers' reviews, but it was actually a pretty good read. Yes some of the plot is hard to believe, but that's consistent with most thrillers these days. Overall i found it engaging, relatively fast paced, with some interesting plot twists. It's been 5+ years since I read The Da Vinci Code , and undoubtedly that helped as his writing is formulaic.

The last few chapters however, were a significant detraction, and the book should have ended with the villain. Rambling on about some puerile pseudo-science left this reader with a bad taste as I finished the book.
