The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

The main guy was boring, the chapters were way to short, and the author kept listing the make and model of every single car he mentioned. If the prose was better it could have been worth it.

Creative and interesting. Also way longer than it needed to be and dragged at times. I’d be interested to know more about the process of writing and researching this book. 

I was a little surprised this wasn’t better written given how popular it was in its time. The female character was written like the author had never actually met a woman, and the word choices throughout became repetitive. There was zero character attachment developed and the
romance came out of nowhere and was so unnecessary.
Also,
why does every single thriller need to include a sex cult. Maybe it became cliche after this book? But I couldn’t stop rolling my eyes during that part.

I really liked this book, the puzzles are really interesting and the historical topics in this book are really interesting. The plot twists were a little predictable though
