5* if it was in the other room - caused a barking laugh here.
I read the Da Vinci Code from first page to last, curious to know why millions of people bought the book. I still haven't a clue. The characters were two dimensional (if that...), and I simply couldn't imagine any of the scenes happening. And the writing itself was as dull and plodding as everyone says it is. And the guy's a multi-millionaire. Just one more unfathomable mystery...
Even worse - people thought it was factual.
That was funny. I am a total literature snob, but I admit thinking "The Da Vinci Code" was a real page-turner. Full of pseudo history, but still a fun read.
Me too Rikki baby.
Have read all his stuff and found him highly roller-coasteresque and entertaining (films were shite though). Like you say, a fun read and should be approached as such.
If you buy a Mars Bar don't expect Ferrero Roche
But then I am a HUGE Lee Child/Jack Reacher fan, brilliant writing and faultless attention to pulp genre detail....and Robert Goddard is brilliant too
Poles apart - one stereotypical USA and the other stereotypical GB - but both well worth the money.
Cock strutting at its very best.
If you liked this but couldn't give it stars, give me stars for some of my other crap in the Writers Room! Ta
