an example why i didn like the twist in da vinci's code.....sandra brown can write better twist than him =P.....really....i read one of her books once.....BEST KEPT SECRETS
it's bout a young lawyer returning to the town her deceased mother grew up in to find her mother's murderer......the twist is fantastic..can't believe who was the real murderer, never suspected, n once i got to know bout the truth, the story still falls into place........somehow i jus don feel like the story of da vinci fell into place when teabing was made the baddie.......

sorry, i got u confused. i m trying to say that he have a few works which is a good read, and thus he became famous and thus everyone notice him and thus ppl buy his books and thus his everywork is labelled as bestseller!admit it, not every stephen king book is understandable nor interesting, i bet there is 1 in 4 ( maybe stephen king is indeed a genius and a normal person like me just don't know how to appreciate a good work)

Let me say Dan Brown (the DVC) did get me interested in researching more about "the truth", i.e. what actually happened, what are the symbolism associated with these ancient symbols etc. I wonder if there're still countries in this world that makes some form of pagan worships their official religion.

Sandra Brown huh?

I'll try and get my hands on some of her books...

Jinjoo...yes, i agree. The DVC also sparks my curiousity to find out the truth about everything. It totally changed my conception on Christianity and religion...

And you know what...I'm a Christian myself.

Well......anyone read books from The Barthemius Trilogy already?

1st book was The Amulet of Samarkand. I just wanted to know if the book's nice because I was tempted to buy it, looks great...
