    I have noticed a few quotes from Dan Brown's new book floating around in some of the threads and thought I would open up one for a discussion of the book itself.

    I read it last week (OK, I "listened to an unabridged set of CD's while driving from here to CT). I was a little disappointed. I much prefered both of the previous works, Angels and Demons and DaVinci Code. I especially found the post climactic speech very "preachy". It was all Age of Enlightenment stuff with a little of god in all of us. I realize I am not the right audience for that particular polemic but felt like it just didn't add to the story. I also felt like the plot didn't move enough or fast enough.

    On the other hand, I think this ought to make a decent third movie of the franchise, the chase in the blackness should be a chore to render on the big screen.

    What do the rest of you think about the book and perhaps about the whole Robert Langdon trilogy?
