Indeed. It's very powerful. I still haven't read the other two books; I'm not sure I want to though.

Fahrenheit 451, another of my favorites.

I've never read them. I've heard all good things about them, but I have yet to pick them up for myself. I have far too many other books on my list to worry about right now.
Aren't they easy reads? Like, thought-provoking, but not high level reading?

nope you're not alone...the man has some interesting plot lines though he's not the most amazing writer...but that's all an opinion. His books kept me interested and wanting more and that's why I liked him. And ya, it does take a clever mind to think up the things he did.

No. You're not alone. You just don't have a comrad in me.

Yeahhhhh the da Vinci code was fun to read, but... man, there's better out there. Especially better endings. Who else felt the end was a cop out?

They're pretty easy reads, but they're not complete trash either. I guess if you wanted, you could get as much or as little out of the books as possible. All of the stuff about the freemasons and religion is pretty interesting, but not too deep if you don't want it to be. I'm sorry, I don't know if that made ANY sense whatsoever

It probably could make sense if I wanted it to. ~_^ I mean, they sound like good books, and a book doesn't have to be the hardest read to be good; sometimes books are better because they are easier to read and to understand.
