Now I'm starting to feel like Kevin Bacon. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Of Dan Brown's efforts I have only read the Davinci Code and have to say that it was a struggle to stay motivated to finish it. Very standard piece of writing with an ending that was obvious less than 50% into it. A lot like Clive Cussler I thought.
I tend to agree with some critics who have said that the only thing that sets it apart is its topic and even that is a repeat of earlier works by other autors.
The movie might be worth seeing but I am not holding out a huge amount of hope.
Will have a look at "the Eight" though because I always give an author a chance to get me onside rather than right them off without reading any of their work.
