Dan Brown Anyone? January 28, 2005 5:08 PM

For Xmas I received his latest book 'Digital Fortress'. Just finished reading it today. A great read, one I did not like to put down. Have any of you read his work? I do know his biggesst hit was "The Divinci Code" which hit the top sellers list. I have read this one and it's companion 'Angels and Demons'. I am not sure what the furor was all about in these, except for his take on religious matters - very well researched, but left you wondering just what was real and which 'facts' were fiction. This latest book was still about code solving, but in a totally different area, and for me much more exciting.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I have read both 'Angels and Demons" and "The Da Vinci Code." I thought the religious aspect was thought provoking, but there was not much character development in the books. They were both a fast read and the plot was predictable (not always, but mostly). The 'Da Vinci Code" seemed very formulaic and written at a low reading level. I think there was too much hype over the books personally.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I'm trying to read Da Vinci code, and so far I'm not so addicted to go past the first two chapters. He doesn't have the Tom Clancy or John Gtrisham touch to get me stuck from page 1 to his book.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I read both 'Angels and Demons' and 'Deception Point'. I tend to agree about the Characters in Angels, but he did much better in Deception Point. It has a wonderful plot as well as good characters. Very fast paced. As far as Clancy and Grisham, Been a Grisham fan for quite some time, but never could read Clancy. Always put them down after the first 100 pages bore me.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I read the DaVinci code last year and really enjoyed it. It's a fun book.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I read all of Dan Brown's books and enjoyed them all. I liked the religious overtones in The DaVinci Code. You know, if you look at a picture of The Last Supper, there really is a woman standing to Jesus' right. I liked Deception Point, too. I really enjoy reading John Grisham. I have all his books, and have reread some. I highly recommend him. peace Lizzzie  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi Everyone, I've read Dan Brown's Divinci Code and Angels and Demons. I liked both of them and like you liked the religious overtones. Since I'm catholic, it made his story line even better and more believable. I haven't read Deception Point yet but I'll roam there soon. Right now I'm in a Koontz, Little, type of mood. Just read both of their new ones enjoyed both, although Koontz's haven't been as good here lately. I loved some of the first books I read by him, Watchers being one of my favorites.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I really enjoyed The DaVinci Code, and the part about the Last Supper was really fascinating! When I got to that part in the book, I immediately went and looked the painting up online. There were alot of interesting ideas in that book. :)  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
damn this school thing March 25, 2005 1:23 AM

I'm desperate to read The Da Vinci code, and the family has two more of his books (cam't remember which, they've disappeared!), but because of having to read a load of school texts and do coursework 'till it comes out my ears I've not had time! It's so frustrating not to be able to just lie on my bed with a cuppa and read for hours like I used to...  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

It is interesting that so many people believe that there is a woman in 'The Last Supper.' I wasn't sure, myself, for quite a while. When I took an art history class, we discussed it, and da Vinci (and many other artists of the time) painted young men as what would seem like very femimine today. I saw a beautiful sculpture of David (not the Michelangelo one) where he was wearing a hat that was covered in flowers. He was so pretty, that if you didn't know what it was supposed to be (and that he was naked), you'd've thought he was a woman, too.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
