Off for an extended read. If the other Dan Brown books are anything to go by, I should be finishing it at around 1:30 tomorrow morning.I'll let you know my thoughts.

Some silver gleaming at the temples. And generally, they seem to have buffed him up a bit - rather disturbing mentions of his musculature, following on from the swimming-scene opener of Angels and Demons (did we really need to see Hanks in Speedos?)
(scratches that film off list)
Yeah I got it yesterday. Just picked it up this evening for a read. On to chapter 6. Good so far.
I must admit I read the da vinci code whilst on holiday in 2 days. It would have been quicker but I had to sleep occasionally.
Not seen angels and demons film yet (also fantastic book) but the da vinci code film was very dissapointing.
In fact the only film I have ever seen that was as good as (I wont say better) the book, was The Green Mile.

It's all true you know. It says so on page one, so it must be.
Now, nobody is to say "National Treasure" or "Holy Blood Holy Grail"....
Well, it took a little longer to read than first thought. I didn't finish it until about 1am Sunday morning.Very similar to the other Langdon books, but it didn't manage to quite suck me in with the suspense as much as 'Da Vinci Code' or 'Angels and Demons' did (The former a fair bit, the latter a lot).Ultimately, the thing they sought (trying not to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read it) didn't seem to be as much of a bombshell as they were making out through the story. It was a bit of a damp squib at the end, although after his previous books where the mentor/guy in charge turns out to be the bad guy, the twist was a good un.
Yeah I just finished it. As you say not as good as angels and demons or the da vinci code, but as good if not better than deception point and digital fortress. The end was a little bit of an anti-climax but still a great read. Yes despite knowing there would be a twist at the end it was still an unexpected ending. The problem is when you write books like angels and demons and the da vinci code, how can you possibly better them?
I wish I was £10M behind him.
I've got a soft spot for 'Deception Point'. 'Digital Fortress' although still good is my least fave of the Dan Brown books.It was funny seeing the trailers on TV for the new Kate Beckinsale film 'Whiteout'. I'm guessing the production team were on more than nodding terms with 'Deception Point'.
