Whether you have read any of the Dan Brown books or not, you have probably heard the hype regarding this bestselling author. And the hype isn’t always good. In fact, some of the comments from the Dan Brown critics can be downright nasty at times.
But don’t let that deter you!
Here is my point.
Yes, Dan Brown wrote two controversial books. The ‘da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels and Demons’. These two books alone have brought him much notoriety. He ruffled the feathers of many Christians in the world with his slanted views of some church doctrine.
But he is a fiction writer! He is allowed to ask questions. He is allowed to pose different ideas and thoughts.
With this stirring up of the pot, he has created something much better than just a best-selling novel. He has created free controversy. With this controversy comes the sale of books.
Millions and millions of book sales.
But wait, he has written other books that have nothing to do with the church, or the Christian faith, or deities of any kind.
In fact, he has three other books out that in my opinion are incredibly great books. These other Dan Brown books have flown under the radar until recently when the latest book, ‘The Lost Symbol’, combined many aspects of the Freemasons with the Christian religion.
It seems Brown has a good combination of publicity combined with a loyal following of readers to score major successes with his books.
That makes 2 out of 5 Dan Brown novels to be made into movies. Not too bad considering many authors never gain this kind of success over an entire career of writing.
So, no matter what you have heard or what your personal opinions are of the Dan Brown books, there is one thing you cannot dispute. He is a wildly successful author. He sells a boatload of these books too.
Controversy has become his friend when it comes to marketing these fast reading books. If you haven’t read any of his books, pick one up today and see what everyone is talking about!
