Keri ha ha. NOW you know how I feel about the Da Vinci Code. Bleach.

Caroline Hahaha, Wendi, I think the same things went through my head when I read that... I mean, yes, incredibly addictive writing and the man knows how to suck people in, but there were times when I was literally yelling at his books because his characters can be so dense.

Digital Fortress was the same brand of mediocre, unless you really have some time to kill it's worth skipping.

Wendi I think I've told you, Caroline, that I have this personal connection to The Da Vinci Code that made it impossible for me to be critical about it (although I have recently forced myself to go in and drop my rating from five stars to four). After reading this, it makes me a little bit sad to realize that if I were to go back and re-read the Code again with a very honestly critical eye, I would probably feel the same frustrations as I did with this book. So I won't. I want to retain as much as I can of the intimate, personal connection that I had with the Code way back when. I just wish I hadn't been a little bit disillusioned by this reading. *little sigh*

Caroline I think the personal connection would still be there, but it probably is wisest to not re-read it just in case your new feelings towards Dan Brown taint the good memories. I've actually never read the Da Vinci Code so I have no idea where it ranks in comparison to the other novels.

Ivan "Digital Fortress" unfortunately has the same sloppiness of writing and demonstrates the same glaring lack of research as this one.

message 6: by William (new)

William Ainsworth I thought Digital Fortress was a better book. Not perfect but worth a read.

Katie Bravo to you for calling it quits. Wish I had quit after the 2 Langdon books...
