for every time somebody "sensed" something in the Da Vinci Code, I could buy an awful lot of Starbucks lattes.
I'll admit that the plot grabs you. I'll admit that it is fast paced and that you don't really want to stop reading. But the writing itself is frankly terrible, and if you're thinking ahead at all you'll guess most of the plot twists before they happen.
I think I'll write some more substantive thoughts on the book later, when I have a bit more time. :)
