Right, so after reading the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, does anyone else think he's written the same book twice? We have the same idea of powerful man killed in a symbolic way, his female relative helping Langdon in his quest and the Catholic church being demonised. Thoughts anyone?

Try reading the Anita Blake novels sometime, and you'll appreciate Dan Brown's work like its a cooler Bible.

Speaking of which, read the Bible, and Dr. Seuss doesnt sound all that crazy anymore.

He can write it over and over again as long as it keeps being good. I loved both of them. I haven't read the other two yet though.

The plots are similar but if it isn't broken. The guy's obviously got a great eye for a thriller and both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons deliver magnificently.

Yeh they're great both books in their own right, but I can't seen how a man can be classed as a great author when he's cloning his books all the time.

better yet, read the Dr. Seuss Bible (taken from one of my favorite Kids In The Hall sketches).
