RE: Any love for Dan Brown's books ?
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".

(27-07-2013 11:03 PM)WeasleyFromTheShire Wrote:  I am buying the collection of his works, and extremely excited to read his latest, The Inferno. The fact it is nearly anti-Christian (Although he denies this, and considers himself on a "spiritual journey" Blink ) interests me, but it comes down to the puzzles. Skip the movies with this book franchise in my opinion .

Hello, I really love Dan Brown but I haven't read Inferno yet (But I watched the film version at the cinema last Halloween). I don't find it some kind of anti-Christian or maybe they omit some details related to this sensitive problem. I will certainly read this novel. Has it released on ebook yet? Thank you very much.

I prefer authors to writers when it comes to prose.

I have enjoyed all his books. Good reads for escaping reality and not overly complicated. Try "Deception Point" and "Digital Fortress" for more intrigue and adventure. I have always liked Tom Hanks as an actor and delight in his portrayal of this role. I find myself picking out actors to match the characters for the books not yet made into film.

I am game for exciting adventures accompanied by a great soundtrack. Better than "take me away Calgon" for soothing the nerves.

I've only heard generic reviews from friends who are big into their reading, but from what they've told me, his books are "entertaining" but not like earth shattering amazing pieces of fiction like some make them out to be.

I do/did enjoy the movies however, despite calling the some of the stuff in Angels/Demons before it was fully "revealed", (Mainly when they burst into the room, and the cardinal guy is on the floor and it looks like the other guy has attacked him...), but yeah, I'll probably skip the books.
