Dan Brown Must Die

(1/16) > >>

nacho:
I'm waiting for the ancient Rome thing where they announce that so and so is an enemy of the Republic and it's every citizen's duty to kill so and so on sight.  Wouldn't that be fun?

When I'm president, I'm going right for that.  Dan Brown is an enemy of the Republic and every citizen's duty is to kill him. 

*cut to Dan Brown feverishly emailing his agent for help while the water meter man crashes through his living room window with a machine gun and a belt of grenades*

Meterman:  BRRROOOOOWNNN!!!

Brown runs outside, only to be confronted by a schoolbus full of armed children and his overweight next door neighbors rushing towards him with hatchets.


Edit:  All I've done is split topics today!

I've noticed everyone in the publsihing industry hates Dan Brown. Is that because the book sold eight ja-zillion copies or because it's mediocre at best?

It's because he's a poor writer and has a bad attitude.  The eight ja-zillion copies inspires hatred for the readers and the public in general, not for Brown.

RottingCorpse:
Bad attitude? I haven't heard anything about that.

I got The Davinci Code last year for X-Mas and made it about 100 pages in before putting it down. When he's talking about Mary Magdalene and weird clues in the art, the book is fascinating. The "thriller" element is boring and poorly structured. He should have wrote a non-fiction account of it all.

nacho:
It's Hardy Boys!  Didn't we talk about this somewhere?  Or was that with myself in the mirror?  Short chapters, every one of them with a cliffhanger ending.  It's actually quite brilliant.  He wrote a standard thriller using the Hardy Boys publisher guidelines.  As far as fad books go, he outstripped the mold.  See, spiritual sold before.  Ishmael, Life of Pi.  Ooh, I hate this book, it's so hard to read, but my broken, rape survivor friend said it helped her find her soooouuullll.

Fuck souls.  Go right for chapter 1006, then, suddenly, the casket DROPPED!  On his HEAD!  KABAM!!!!

Chapter 1007.  But, he was okay.

I was really scared in chapyer 1006 when he got hit on the head ed ed ed.  Oh yeah ah ah, that scared me too.  Tiddlywinks fluffy fru!
