About a month ago I was looking for books for my vacation. So off to Barnes and Nobels I went and ran across the book Angels and Demons. The cover looked good, and being that I thought it was about vampires, I thought it would be a good read. For starters it wasn't about vampires. It was about topics much more scientific and artistic, and I couldn't put it down! After we got back from vacation I knew I had to find more books by the author, Dan Brown. To my surprise his current book is one I've been hearing about, The DiVinci Code. So I ended up buy it along with his other two novels, Deception Point and Digital Fortress.

These books are amazing (though I'm just now starting to read The DiVinci Code, and I already want to do nothing BUT read it)! I just wanted to share...

If I didn't have a reading list as big as a small African country already I'd pick it up, Vatican conspiracies are intresting and who knows, maybe even true. The only thing that would stop me is that so many people like it, how could so many people be right?

Punk Rawk Poet: I think people like it for many different reasons. Its got art, science, puzzles, SOME romance, action, suspense, and so on. I think if you asked a group of people who have read it why they like I'm sure you'll get a variety of answers. For me its how Dan Brown takes facts, and instead of writing a dry non-fiction book, he mixes these facts in with suspenseful fiction that teaches you something new without boring you to death! And all his novels are like this. Personally I liked Angels and Demons better than The DaVinci Code (I'm about 3/4 through The DaVinci Code), but that's just me.

It happens occasionally. I like pizza and breathing. You like pizza and breathing. Most people like pizza and breathing.

Flukes happen, too.
