6 comments on “Episode 7 – Dan Brown

  1. Didn’t care too much for Deception Point, Lost Symbol, or Inferno.

    Deception Point has them falling off an ice shelf into the ocean and surviving, which is by far the most ridiculous thing Brown has ever written, which is saying a lot.

    In Lost Symbol, after the fake drowning, the villain basically said, “I only pretended to kill you, NOW I’m going kill you.” But it was the first book where the friendly guy wasn’t the bad guy in the end, though I guessed the twist by the middle of the book. I almost didn’t finish that one though, because if I read “Know ye not that ye are gods?” one more time, I was going to burn the damn thing.

    Inferno ended up being more of a con story. It didn’t follow the Brown cookie cutter, and in the process proved he should stick to following it.

  2. Sharing “that” corner o the desk with “Anals and Demons” are the fine works “DaVini Coed” and “The Lust Symbol”.

    Veering on topic a second (apologies): After the third book, I realized the only way I could preserve the fun I had reading thus far was to quit reading Dan Brown books altogether. In that way, the experience wasn’t further diluted and I didn’t get to Rob’s level of disillusionment.

    Now that that’s out of the way: James, I spit out my free horrible coffee over your rendition of the Vanilla Ice/Queen sampling litigation. So thanks for that. To be fair, the difference was even less than what you sang. I’m self editing the rest of this topic, so you’re welcome.

    Fear of Plaid. I have that. It should be a thing. I’m going to use it for my next album title.
