Dissing Dan Brown for a Meme

I have dropped everything else while I read volume one of The Autobiography of Mark Twain. It's a big fat 700 page annotated scholarly work that somehow got filled with folksy anecdotes and irreverencies, vignettes about people like General Grant and Horace Greeley. I'm waiting for some shocking anti-religious diatribes but haven't found any yet.

In the meme-time here is the latest question from Crazy for Books.

"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

That would have to be The Lost Symbol. I rather enjoyed reading The Davinci Code, but Dan Brown had jumped the shark in the sequel. I rather enjoyed skewering it in my review.


  1. Your newest follower!

    I've never been interested in The Davinci Code. A lot of people love it, but it never looked like a good read.

  2. I have the Autobiography of Mark Twain on my desk. Right now, it is kind of a paper weight. It is 738 pages long. I have so many books to read, I don't know where to start sometimes.

  3. I'm halfway through! It's not as long as you think, unless you read all of the editor's notes.
