Suggested by Janet:
The opposite of last week’s question: ‘What’s the best €˜worst’ book you’ve ever read €” the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?’
My mind went blank when I first read this question and then I remembered Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, which has had so any bad reviews. I read it before I read any of the reviews fortunately because I doubt I would have bothered reading it if I had. I’m glad I didn’t because I enjoyed it. It may not be the best book ever written but it kept me entertained throughout, so much so that I then read his Angels and Demons. I think both books have that page-turning fast action that keeps me wanting to read on to find out what happens and I also like the puzzle-solving aspects, although I think Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose is far better.
