1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid The Da Vinci Code like a plague-ridden rodent, 27 Feb 2005
This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon) (Paperback)
I find it somewhat depressing to think that so many millions of people (myself included) have read such a painfully mediocre book. Brown's style of writing is grating in the extreme. His characters are terribly two dimensional and thoroughly unconvincing (the suave hero uni lecturer is apparently based on himself). The use of France as location is done with the American reader in mind, it is certainly not a France I recognise and any minor use of the french language involves awkward total translation resulting in slowing the clunking text down further. I dont think I need to say what else is wrong with it, just take a look at any of thew other reviewers' comments. Avoid.
