OK, if you're on this site, you're a reader, so you've probably read this book already.

BUT, if you haven't, I recommend it. Yes, it's historically inaccurate. Yes, it's wildly improbable. Yes, it has THE most mis-matched romantic couple in any book in recent years. But, it's also thrilling, thought-provoking, and pretty fun. This isn't your typical drug-store-purchased beach read thriller.

I won't bore you with a plot synopsis, since you've also probably seen the movie, but the fast pace, snappy dialogue, and keep-you-guessing plot (though I did figure out a major twist early on then congratulated myself for it later when I found out I was right) will keep you up late reading it. I plowed through it in two days and even took it to Home Depot and read it as I followed my husband around the lumber aisles!

Buy into the hype and get a copy. It's worth the credit!

Pure smut, but good, exciting, well-paced smut. It's gotten a bad rap from all the hype it's gotten and arguably the bad transition to movie, but let's remember that this is not supposed to be high literature in any form, nor is it to be a true account. That said, his books are very formulaic, but this is his best one I believe.

Repeat after me, "IT'S FICTION". This is a great, well written dramatic book. Don't take the "facts" as true facts, without doing your own research. Just sit back, instead, hold onto your book really tight, and enjoy the fast-paced read.

A great read, but if you are an evangelical Christian, you will probably be highly offended. A few times as I read this book, I was afraid was going to get struck by lightning. Zap! As a writer, Brown knows how to keep the reader's attention, but, woah!, he sure isn't afraid of the moral majority!

Although I believe that a lot of this book is controversial and false, it was overall a good read. It was easy to read and I read it in only a couple of days.
