Any good thriller writer should always try to blend fact, theory and fiction together and smudge the lines between them. Dan Brown has succeeded in doing this and made a lot of money from it. Fair play. Ian Fleming faced the same criticisms when his Bond books were such a mainstream success. The literary snobs just can't stand it!
Vae victus!
It is total rubbish- poorly written, and an insult to the word literature.
This comes a very poor second to the Original The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail which is non fiction.

I too thoroughly enjoyed this "ripping yarn" the book was an enjoyable page turner. I agree with Benni's comments.
I thought it was neither as good or as bad (depending on which camp your in) as I expected but it is an easy read.
I agree with Maria and Benni, have people forgotten what the word fiction means? come on lighten up just enjoy it as agood page turner.
I totally agree with Benni. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and never took too seriously. It was good entertainment.
Whilst I agree that this book has been over rated by the readers who have taken the content very seriously I would argue that it is a well researched, entertaining adventure. As a work of historical import it is over-rated garbage. As an action adventure it is great.
