    And knowing Dan Brown's meticulous research, one of them will be a theorbo. Built by Muzio Clementi. And once played on by Andreas Rosenkreuz him very self, who hid a secret message inside the lid.

    Silly of me to put this in the 'culture' forum. I should have tried it under the 'Still trying to be funny after all af these years' forum.

    To be fair, Dan Brown as "culture" is a bit of a stretch.

    Reading? Would that be considered culture? According to wiki Dan Brown is quite a successful writer. If it isn't culture now it will be sometime in the future.

    This from Wiki:
    His fourth novel, The Da Vinci Code, became a bestseller, going to the top of the New York Times Best Seller list during its first week of release in 2003. It is now credited with being one of the most popular books of all time, with 81 million copies sold worldwide as of 2009.[15][16]

    I would recomend it. It was relatively fast paced, with a few twists here and there, and the end was not at all what I expected. So all in all a good read. Some things that were clearly farfetched, but in fiction all is fair.

    I like Dan Brown; easy read, pacey and good surprises. Most of the nay-sayers like his stories too, they're just too far up their own bottoms to admit it.

    So what you're saying is that he's above any criticism. I found The De Vinci Code not tied together well, and the nding really stunk. But I guess thats my problem.

    No I didn't think the DC was a good story either; the film was worse.

    Better than Da Vinci Code, worse than Angels and Demons. I liked it, even though it isn't my normal type of reading. Nothing amazing about it, but a good adventure...

    Good book... It's kind of funny how all Brown novels are essentially the same plot, but it's interesting and entertaining nonetheless. Even if many those historical facts aren't true, they're still interesting.

    Probably Brown's 3rd best, behind Angels and Demons and Deception Point.

    Not to mention pushing an agenda that trivializes an entire religion.
