I tried to predict the story everytime I read it...lol.

Anyway, what version do you guys read? The ebook version or the paperback? Just wonder, how much are those books selling in Malaysia? Wanna compare the prices here...
well... i think,without any promotion or wat, a paperback still fetch a price of RM31.99 to RM39.99...

bought the books here thru Amazon at USD 3.99 (during some sale) and USD 7.19 for the normal 10% off deals though...

Hmm, I really don't get what all the hype about the Da Vincci Code - I suppose since it is based on the Holy Grail and Brown suggests he knows what it is and where it is situated. Anyway, I do admire his knowledge but sometimes it seems that he is trying to force all this knowledge down our throats just to make us think that he put extra effort into his books (especially in Deception Point - half the time I couldn't remember what the stupid PODS were!)

I'd rate the four books like this:

1. Angels and Demons - Immense detail and the plot was really orginal seeing as the Illuminati do actually exist. Robert Langdon - woohoo!

2. Da Vincci Code- It just seemed too structured and typical.

3. Deception Point - Really gripping but also another alien hoax type thriller.

4. Digital Fortress - Dan Brown must have written this last because it lacked the suspense and originality Angels and Da Vincci Code had.

I agree with Michelle. Angels and Demons is so much better than Da Vincci Code. In my opinion, DVC is slow and predictable. Since I read A&D first, DVC was a disappointment.

Regarding the code given by the author in the backcover in "Digital Fortress", does anyone know how to solve the code?

For me ,after I read Da Vinci Code, the plots have been similarely predictable..However, I liked Angels and Demons the most, but after reading two Dan Brown books, I had lost my interest on his other two books, though pacted with huge amount of knowledge and information, his novel's plot seems to be boring as there are alot similarities.One of the good guy is the real bad guy,somethings like that.In angel&demons, I could guess that the cardinal's son is the real-bad guy at the middle(or near begining) of the story,just like the Da Vinci Code.Comeon Dan Brown, stop using the same tactics again and again....So if you want to read Dan Brown's book, I recommend reading A&D,then switch to others author,or else you'll feel like you had read it before.

Can anybody compare Dan Brown's books with other books in the similar vein? or is Dan Brown writing a completely new subgenre which explains the sudden popularity?

Only read Da Vinci Code. Already liking Brown's style because he doesn't use foul languages and uses beautiful words in his work. This is rare in books from Steven King and John Grisham. Makes me cringe everytime there's a foul word.
