Dan Brown is the author of numerous #1 bestselling novels, including The Da Vinci Code, which has become one of the best selling novels of all time as well as the subject of intellectual debate among readers and scholars. Brown’s novels are published in 52 languages around the world with 200 million copies in print.
In 2005, Brown was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by TIME Magazine, whose editors credited him with “keeping the publishing industry afloat; renewed interest in Leonardo da Vinci and early Christian history; spiking tourism to Paris and Rome; a growing membership in secret societies; the ire of Cardinals in Rome; eight books denying the claims of the novel and seven guides to read along with it; a flood of historical thrillers; and a major motion picture franchise.”
The son of a mathematics teacher and a church organist, Brown was raised on a prep school campus where he developed a fascination with the paradoxical interplay between science and religion. These themes eventually formed the backdrop for his books. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he later returned to teach English before focusing his attention full time to writing.
Brown is currently at work on a new book as well as the Columbia Pictures film version of his most recent novel.

Entertaining, fast paced mind fluff - just don't think too hard.
If you want some kind of escapism you will find it in “Inferno”, Dan Brown’s very modern threat which was inspired on The Divine Comedy (a long Italian narrative poem by Dante Alighieri). This thriller comes with a truckload of information and anecdotes of places. It is also overloaded with history ...
I read the first few chapters of “Fifty Shades” (maybe because I want to write romance and erotica, and I need to keep tabs on the competition...lmao) and found it to be just as laughable as readers warned me, but I have to admit I have a soft spot for Dan Brown's popcorn cack. I've reread a few of ...
Poor old Dan Brown. He does get a bit of stick. They say he writes silly, brainless stories told in a way appropriate for telling silly, brainless stories. With three thousand or so plot twists. In fact, my friends say, one cannot even call Dan Brown's novels stories - they're just collections of pl...
