I mean it's not as if the books are particularly bad or anything, they're just another pulpy thrash book, but the reaction created by them pisses me off.
It's not that I hate Dan Brown. I read both Angels & Demons
and The DaVinci Code
. They were fun reads. You know.. kind of like eating dessert instead of a good, healthy meal. What I do hate is how he's got these psuedo-facts that he tries to pull of as the real thing. And that he has to have his wife do his research. Which is probably why he screws them up so much. He doesn't have the context that the facts came from.
Anyway.. my favorite books?
Let's see... The Princess Bride
(if you're any fan of the movie, you should read the book. The movie will make WAY more sense then.) Of Mice and Men
... poor Lenny.... Ummm.. I was into Mercedes Lackey for awhile, but I got over that. I love historical fiction. Right now I'm reading Salems' Lot
