I disagree with both negative comments above. The fact that his previous two works were horrid means nothing; how many times has a writer written other works that have no public appeal, but their most recent work get notoriety regardless of the subject? I can understand that perhaps a subject is not of your liking, but I honestly doubt you actually read all of his books to come to this conclusion; after all, why would you read several books from someone who’s literary style you dislike. I do want to say that granted, “The Da Vinci Code”, did gain notoriety based on the subject it talked about; but at the same time it was a great read and several historical facts are mentioned in the book. If you are history buff and “the sangreal, knights templars” are topics you like, then pick up the book and read. PLEASE keep in mind this is fiction.
