Hehe I got it yesterday. About halfway through it and I hate to admit it, but I am quite enjoying it. Which is weird, considering the fact that I think Brown is a terrible writer. He really is. His actual prose is stale and clichéd, and his writing is also annoyingly condescending, in its painfully overdone explanations of absolutely everything. They're basically books written for the lowest common denominator, and yet I can't deny that despite all this, he weaves a page-turner of a tale.
Totally agree. He's got a great imagination and can tell a good story, but he just writes like a 10 year old armed with Microsoft Word's thesaurus function.
