Marika Charalambous Dan Brown came out with his first books at a time when such books were rather rare. He really defined a new subgenre in thrillers back in the day. Of course, now there are authors who came along with more polished works. Dan Brown's novelty is long gone, while authors like Blake Crouch are newcomers with fresh ideas for our own times. I do enjoy Blake Crouch's work, but I have to admit that back in the day when Dan Brown became big with his Da Vinci Code, I loved that book as well for its unusual idea.
Dahaiou Paraphrasing a little on something written by another author: Am I the only one who thinks a good read is a more inspiring experience than ironing your underwear, flossing your dog or watching daytime TV.
Patrick Well yes of course, but Dan Brown is a very low bar to exceed.
Scooter McDermitt Nope, you are not alone.
Penelope Miller Not sure they are comparable really....both are thrillers but set in very different times.
Janie wow, what an imagination; Recursion is an amazing concept. Dan Brown is tre's ordinaire, by comparison.
Ali Are you talking writing quality or story quality? Well either way, Yes from me.

Not part of my Yes, though a huge bonus for me too, is that Blake Crouch writes more my interests/genres, which is always a bit of extra yay.
Wael Mekky Yes indeed, I agree with you.
Jim Dan who…? Blake Crouch is quickly becoming my favorite author. I left this one not being sure what was in fact science fiction or science fact.
Brent Jewell I was tired of Dan Brown after the second book in the series. He is too obsessed with other countries. Blake is obsessed with telling incredible stories that are beyond all imagination!
