Logan I liked it too. I also liked "The DaVinci Code". They were hella entertaining and fairly original for that genre. For me, the entertainment value supersedes all the crappy aspects.


message 2: by Jessika (new)

Jessika I absolutely agree. The fact that I had my face glued to a book for hours on end is enough for me to say it was a good book.


JG (The Introverted Reader) I hate that we feel like we have to apologize for liking him. I'll roll my eyes occasionally at his heavy-handed foreshadowing, but the man makes me tear through pages to find out what happens next. I just finished a "Literary" Grail book, and it did not hold my attention a tenth as well as Brown does.


message 4: by Jessika (new)

Jessika YES. I agree 100%. I hate when I feel like I have to defend myself when I enjoyed a book. Everyone needs a little "fluff" from time to time, and honestly, as far as I'm concerned, if it gets people to read, isn't that what is important?


message 5: by Erin (new)

Erin I agree with the "eye-rolling" comment. I mean, Dickens did the same darn thing.

Jane Story I haven't finished the book yet, but I agree with your review. Everyone seems to hate this book for various reasons, but I think it's a really fun read so I'm going to enjoy it regardless.


message 7: by Meher (new)

Meher Piplani I totally agree with you. You put your comment in a nice way. I dont think that this is one of Mr. Browns best books but its still a page turner.


message 8: by Sophie (new)

Sophie Pearson I agree aswell! I'm not done with the book either, but I can't stop reading it...I read every chance I get. All these bad reviews dissapoint me!


message 9: by Akshaz (new)

Akshaz I agree. I loved the book and just couldn't put it down!


message 10: by Emma (new)

Emma I heard nothing but good things about Dan Brown, granted many people said it was 'cheesy' in parts but many books are, not sure about you but I love knowing things are going to end up ok! haha! It was a real page-turner, couldn't put it down and loved the Da Vinci code just as much! :)


message 11: by Dorothy (new)

Dorothy Nice honest review. Loved the book too despite what others may say.

Harry Jason True! I've read so many reviews, bad ones, about how crappy of an author he is but honestly, I enjoyed Angels & Demons and The Lost Symbol. Well, I don't know! Maybe I'm just that crappy in History or whatever that I'm not irritated when he uses facts (objects, organizations, ideas, etc.) but alter them somehow. It fits! I don't know if he did alter them or not but it's exciting! Thrilling! But I also keep in mind not to use his books as reference to arts or history or such. It's a fiction. I'm not that stupid, really. And. It. Doesn't. Bother. Me. That. Much. When. He. Writes. Like. This. I noticed them alright! But like what I said, it doesn't bother me much. Lol


message 13: by Danny (new)

Danny Who cares if its cheesy. It kept me entertained for few days that's what books are for!


message 14: by Gary (new)

Gary Harper People can bad mouth Dan Brown all they want, but he's the one laughing all the way to the bank. Besides, clearly a lot more peopled liked it than those who didn't since they managed to drum up enough interest for a film series.


message 15: by Skip (new)

Skip His English is weak. Poor writer. I got about a fifth of the way through it and threw it. I have no patience with this low level of writing.

message 17: by Chris Marie (new)

Chris Marie I think it was a wonderful book.


message 18: by Bidhan (new)

Bidhan Bajgain I had so deep interest in antimatter and this book discussed it. It's a nice piece of art .


message 19: by Richard (new)

Richard Power Great review Jess!


message 20: by Oluwatosin (new)

Oluwatosin whether u are believing or not, the guy is very good in getting people along, do u know what it takes in reading while walking on the road? it is called Dan Brown principle


message 21: by Jeanette (new)

Jeanette I totally agree. I've read a few so called classics and thought they were crappy! I enjoy Dan Brown's novels, ok digital fortress was very longwinded and yes boring but the Robert Langdon series is fab. long live cheesiness and fluff if it saves the world from having to read madam Bovary, crappiness in its purest form!


message 22: by Iván (new)

Iván Great review!


message 23: by Kajal (new)

Kajal I agree! Its not fair to feel like we shouldn't like a book. For me this was as good as it gets. I loved it, i tore through the book with super speed and i went to bed satisfied. I think that is what reading is about.


message 24: by Peter (new)

Peter Wauyo Dan Brown's books always reveal new breakthroughs in science and technology. A lot of the science seems impossible (DNA manipulation in inferno) but when you research you find that it's possible and scientists are thinking along those lines.


message 25: by Charlie (new)

Charlie Dan Brown is defidently not a crappy writer. He is absolutely awesome. In his book he describes Robert Langdon wearing a tweed jacket and a turtle neck. Then you look at Dan Brown. They look exactly the same!


message 26: by Alejandra (new)

Alejandra Cuevas what is the form that i can read a book,downloading the book,because only i was seeing comments and the book for lecture is dissapeared....


message 27: by Amol (new)

Amol Thakore This is a great book


message 28: by Arshia (new)

Arshia Dan Brown is surely a thrilling person. I mostly prefer the books that feature Robert Langdon. The book is mind blowing!!! Also I would suggest if Dan Brown could write a novel featuring Robert Langdon seeking for an ancient Indian truth...I mean that Indian history has so much to discover. And with Langdon it would be hilarious!!!!
