What is so damned fascinating about The DaVinci Code?

January 31, 2006 | Books I Read, General | By: Mark VandeWettering

I just finished listening to Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code and I can’t help but shake my head and wonder:

Why the hell is this book so damned popular?

Dan Brown is a dreadful writer.   Not just mediocre.  But bad.  Really bad.   I mean really, let’s open with an evil albino?  Why not just have a midget and a one armed man as villains?  Dear Lord.

And the code stuff?  They are riddles, not codes.

And the ending.  Dreadful.   Truly dreadful.

I have also read it. I feel the same about the book. Well, perhaps the movie will be more interesting…
Anyway, keep up the good work with your site!
