Dan Brown - Digital Fortress & Da Vinci Code. magnify

I just finished reading another one of Dan Brown's books "Digital Fortress". Not bad..... I've read better. I quite like his style of short chapters and leading snipits at the end of each chapter. Its makes his book an easy read, although, sometimes its a little cheesy. It all gets a bit Enid Blyton "Secret Seven" at times. Some of the action in his books would be worthy of a James Bond blockbuster (I'm thinking of "Deception Point" in particular). I've made a start on "Angels and Demons" tonight, which is a kind of prequel to "Da Vinci Code". I can see why Brown was not particulary well known before Da Vinci Code. As thrillers go, he is not a patch on Frederick Forsyth who really can write "faction". I reckon Da Vinci Code has worked because its tapped into our penchant for conspiracy theories. I love 'em because it appeals to my vivid imagination! Also, DVC is a good thing in my view, because its awakened an interest in a subject (i.e. Christianity) that to many people has been a pretty dry subject and a "no go" area.

....... Talking of conspiracy theories.... I see on the news that footage has just been released of CCTV recording the plane crashing into the Pentagon..... looks like its cleared up that particular conspiracy in that there was some doubt as to whether the plane really did crash or not. On the other hand, it proves one point that sometimes things are kept from us by governments. This footage was apparently only realeased today because the trial of one of the suspects is now over.
