No love from me, sorry. It's dabbles a little into history...but then it isn't just filling in the gaps of what we don't know with entertaining possibilities, it's way too fucking over the top. I can't get into it.

Worth the price of a paperback, on sale preferrably, but not much more than that. Entertaining, and quick reads is about all the positive I can say about his books.

I was not overly impressed with The Lost Symbol, partly because I guessed the main plot from the start. But I think the other books are very entertaining.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you
do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will
understand why I dismiss yours.

I liked ‘The De Vinci Code’ a lot. I read it before a movie was in the works and as usual the book was far better.

When the movie for ‘Angels and Demons’ was set to come out I hurried and read that one before I had it was ruined for me by the movie. That one was a disappointment. It just followed the exact same formula and structure of the first one, only with different scenery and characters, but the same book.

After which I assume all the rest will do the same. I have no interest in this newest book. Of the two I read I don’t think one was better than the other or worst than the other. I could have read ‘Angels and Demons’ first, liked it a lot, then read ‘The De Vinci Code’ and been let down by that one. For me it’s like watching an episode of ‘House’. You’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.

I'm a big fan, I like that his books are not black/white on the religious matters, he's able to point out good and bad stuff about it.

But I'll have to admit, every time I pick up one of his books, the first few chapters I'm just thinking "Fuck me, this is boring".
