hey team!!
[sorry for the delay, i was out of town]
so here we are! Big smile

I asked myself what makes a good author, a best author. Well, my opinion on that is a good author writes wonderful stories by bringing us to a different world. But to be the best author, they have to create an idea in the readers mind. They spur tons of thoughts and force us to question our world. And when I think of an author like that, I think of Dan Brown. With his best selling novel --The Da Vinci Code, Brown promotes a lot of debates on faith, religion and history. The book is translated and published in 40 different languagues. That, itself, tells one how influential Browns ideas are. He was recently named the World's 100 Most Influential People by TIME Magazine.
His other books, Digital Fortress, Deception Point, and Angels and Demons are also best sellers.

[i will add more later on]
go Dan Brown Team =]

Dan Brown… Whether you loved it or hated it, chances are you read The DaVinci Code, and probably even own your own copy. If you haven't read it, you've probably seen the movie starring Tom Hanks and Sir Ian McKellen. And you've probably heard the name of the novel's author, Dan Brown, mentioned in the newsa zillion times.   What can one say about the author, whose book is a cult hit, having sold over 25 million copies in 44 languages? It reached No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list on April 6, 2003, and has stayed on the list for 103 straight weeks half at the No. 1 position (and never below No. 5). As a consequence, Brown's three other novels have now sold over 7 million copies, earning him an estimated $50 million in the last two years.    MUCH HAS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN decoding, deconstructing, and debunking Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, including Tim Callahan's critical review in SKEPTIC. At least 20 other non-fiction books have now been published by other authors in response, promising to help readers "decode" it in some way. And if all that wasn't enough, in March 2005, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, head of doctrinal orthodoxy for the Vatican, issued an official statement on behalf of the Catholic Church, calling the novel "a sack full of lies" and urging Christians not to read it.

The Da Vinci Code is striking in the way the fictional plot is woven into several other intriguing historical plots. References to actual historical figures such as Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Constantine the Great, and Leonardo da Vinci have prompted scholars to write articles and books responding to claims about them made by the fictional Saunire, Langdon, and Teabing. References to existing locations such as the Louvre and Rosslyn Chapel have generated so much interest that tour guides developed the "Da Vinci route". A novel that seems to be creating history…
