2.0 out of 5 stars Not many authors have made me this angry, 13 Jan. 2007
The material itself is quite interesting, as a philosophy student religion interests me but it is the author and his style of writing that ruins this potentially good book.

Within a few pages he condemns himselfs as he says that the reason for writing this book was he noticed how many millions of copies Dan Brown was selling and a friend suggested he just slapped together a book of his historical opinion, even stated that when finished he didnt bother to give it an editorial once over (obviously). He continually refers to chunks of Dan Brown's narrative which is unecessary "Teabing says...Langdon says." Hmm... Where are Dan Brown's books in a book shop? O, yeah. Fiction. There is no need for his constant critisism, I agree that a real historical account is an interesting topic but he is blatently jumping on the Brown bandwagon. Perhaps he could be slightly forgiven if the book was at least readable. He tries to write in a colloquial style and it reads like a terribly bad essay with sub headings and a couple of pictures (obviously never took A- level english). The structure is awful, "blah, blah, blah, but I'll talk about this later and this a bit later on.

No doubt he won't be selling as many copies as Dan Brown.
