Did you even read it?!

That 8th "Argh" is totally inaccurate.

Other than that, great review!

Oh damn, I forgot the warning about spoilers.

Mike: yes, I should have said something about the spoilaarghs.

If you'd posted this review on Talk Like a Pirate Day, it could have been "Aaaaaarrrrh!"

Adam Roberts said...

Sherwood: that would be a fine and fair review of The Avast-ye Symbol.

If it's any comfort:

The other day I read an old Harold Robbins potboiler from the 1980s, DESCENT FROM XANADU.

It was utter shite, of course, and the author just kept obsessing about the joys of cocaine. (All. The. Time.)

But the point is: Robbins was a best-selling author... and now he's virtually forgotten. (My copy of the book was given away for free at a waste recycling station. Seriously!)

That's going to happen to Dan Brown too.

(But he'll be rich and famous first.. for awhile, anyway.)
