    2. most of us have heard of this controverisal book it takes an open minded person to read this and to remember it is just fiction but it brings up a lot of important questions about the Christian church, and the loss of paganism and the respect of the Goddess or the Woman I don t care if I am the only one who likes this book it is my own truth, and i will think what i want to think Dan Brown didn t LEAD me or anyone else he OPENED our minds simply and importantlyhe was just a catalyst for differen [...]

    5. This is a pretty formulaic page turner, a fun quick read Written at about the level of the average Nancy Drew mystery, it is best appreciated at that level As far as the content, there are howlers on virtually every page starting with the hero who looks like Harrison Ford in Harris tweed and is a Professor of Religious Symbology at Harvard good work if you can find it You have to ignore very pulpy, cheesy writing to enjoy this romantic thriller.Intended as a book that a dedicated reader could fi [...]

    7. A thriller devoid of pacing or exciting language A mystery devoid of clues, foreshadowing, or facts A tell all of half truths based upon a forged document written by a schizophrenic conman A character driven modern novel devoid of character The second draft of Angels and Demons Page turning action thanks to the literary equivalent of pulling out at the moment of orgasm A spiritual awakening built on new age conspiracy theory This book is many things, and none of them good, new, or interesting Ho [...]

    10. No, I am not No, I am not going to write a review about this piece of nonsense just because I had yet ANOTHER of those incredibly annoying conversations in a bookstore to top it off No, I am not.Oh, for goodness sake It is NOT a great book to broaden your cultural horizons, and whatever the humbug mentioned on Leonardo it is NOT equivalent to reading a book researched by a REAL art historian, which is something entirely different from a blind folded arrogant gold digging bestseller author It is [...]

    11. Impossibly complicated plot Really, really, really bad writing This book was forced upon me I should have known better.

    12. 5 stars to Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code Most folks have seen the movie and probably not read the book What a loss for them That said, I know a lot of people don t enjoy Brown s books, believing he is too commercialized and over exaggerated in his style While I can understand why someone may think that, I don t agree I love the complexity of the story, the reality and the fiction, the test of character strength, the puzzles, the different view points It completely absorbs me so I fall into the c [...]

    13. I ve finally started reading that ever so controversial best seller by Dan Brown Actually, not reading it, listening to it while driving around Lansing, MI This book seems to have changed the minds of many Catholics my grandfather included and Protestants alike Granted, there have long been rumors of secret societies and organizations within the Roman Catholic Church, and historical cover ups are rampant throughout civilization HOWEVER,The book is crap It s not at all well written Brown seems to [...]

    14. Every summer I tend to enjoy reading action and adventure thrillers The genre seems perfect for the hot weather outside as all of the action builds to a heated crescendo Last week I participated in a diary called the Pepys Project in one of the groups I am part of, the reading for pleasure book club The diarist relays pertinent literary information on a daily basis to ones peers It happened that author Dan Brown celebrated a birthday last week, and as I had never read his best selling DaVinci Co [...]

    16. I downloaded the book and put it on my ipod and began to listen to it on a long road trip I found it engaging and the plot twisted and turned, jumping from scene to scene, back and forth in time Really kept the reader on her toes I m not sure if I liked it, the writing style was pretty crude, but it kept me thinking.About an hour into listening I realized that the ipod was on shuffle mode and in fact all the chapters were being shuffled I groaned and started over When played in a linear fashion [...]

    17. For the most part, it seems that people either passionately love this book or they passionately hate it I happen to be one of the former For my part, I don t see the book so much as an indictment of the Catholic Church in particular but of religious extremism and religion interfering in political process in general The unwarranted political control granted to extreme religious organizations like the CBN is an issue that we will be forced to address one way or the other To my eye, our political p [...]

    19. For cheap supermarket fiction, this sure was cheap supermarket fiction It would have helped if this was the first book I had ever read Unfortunately, having read Curious George as a child a towering work of literary genius by comparison , The DaVinci Code suffered perhaps unjustly.

    22. This book, and everything written by Dan Brown to varying degrees , represent much of what I most dislike about pop literature First of all, Mr Brown, despite teaching English at Amherst College, is a bad writer This is not to say that I am a good writer But I recognize a person who can t show you vivid scenes, he has to tell you Various characters wear expensive clothes How do we know The text says they re expensive How do we know Mr Langdon is brilliant The text makes no bones about telling us [...]

    23. Caveat Academics I won t belabor the obvious, as it s been done quite well by other reviewers, but I just couldn t stand not to add my own hear hear to the fray If you re going to create a character who is an expert, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you check your facts Whoever edited this drivel ought to be sewn in a sack with a rabid raccoon and flung into Lake Michigan.And just as a matter of good taste your expert should not be an expert in everything under the sun That s one of the hallmarks [...]

    24. Got about 15 pages in and couldn t continue for the tears of laughter and rage filling my eyes Seriously, the writing is laughably bad, so bad I couldn t see straight I had to put it down No way am I going to willingly subject myself to torture.And yet, at times I do That s led me to wonder why.I think it s because some books, while bad, are not horrible to the bone and I hold out hope that they might salvage a rough start and shine by the end I want to enjoy what I m reading I always go into a [...]

    25. Illuminati and Club of Rome Is Dan Brown illuminated or enlightened He is a good researcher that is for sure.

    26. I am utterly stupefied by this masterpiece and Dan Brown s ability to blur the lines between the real and the fictional, as he did in the first book in the Robert Langdon series It s a mouthwatering book, always keeping you on the edge, from page one up until the last page I could hear my own heart beating because of the thrill I had found the first book extraordinary when I read it three months ago and I m so glad I finally read it, especially after all those years of reading the controversial [...]
