|Quoting PROSA (Reply 4):|
It was a collection of unreadable pseudo-intellectual crap. Toss in a collection of trivia, and people think they'll get smart from reading it. Not to mention the practice of ending almost every chapter with an exciting cliffhanger, so people just have to keep reading. That's a common trick in children's literature but condescening in something aimed at adults.

It's a conspiracy theory presented as fact, it twists reality and religious beliefs that are very strong in order to make a buck.

So now I'm not sure whether it is worth reading or not. If I do read it, I suppose I should be wary of the points brought up here.
How should I approach this book if I decide to go about reading it?

I thought the book was interesting, and Brown is definitely very intelligent, but I lost a lot of respect for him when he called the BE58 a turboprop.
|Quoting Johnboy (Reply 20):|
I don't want to spoil any ending, but IMHO the author should have gone for the jugular with the Church but he was too much of a wuss to do so.
A collective yawn at the end after building up so much historical/fictional detail throughout the story.
