Yesterday evening I went to the cinema to see Angels and Demons starring Tom Hanks. I was a bit dubious about seeing this movie as I am a big Dan Brown fan; Angels and Demons is by far my favourite of all his novels. But the film didn't disappoint. Okay, it didn't stick exactly to the book - what film ever does? - but it stuck enough to the storyline to satisfy me and, I'm sure, countless other Brown fans.
If indeed you are a Dan Brown fan....
Many are not.
I think his books well written, fast paced (which I love) with brilliant storylines, and thoroughly researched.
The added bonus of this recent movie, is, that it is perfectly easy to understand - even if you've not read the book. I don't think the same can be said for the Da Vinci Code. I enjoyed this film too, but my hubby and daughter (neither of whom had read the novels) found this first film confusing, but they both loved watching Angels and Demons. Hubby said it was the best film he'd seen in ages. We did come out of the cinema feeling as if we'd had our money's worth for once.
So? What do you think of Dan Brown? Do you love him or hate him?
Either way, his books are earning him cash!
