Carl:
And it's the effective end of Dan Brown's writing career. We can completely dismiss fans that persist in believing that Dan Brown is a gifted writer. They're entitled to their fantasies but we're entitled to ignore them and allow him to sink in total obscurity that he deserves

Quite right Xavier. Who now but a fool would give any credence to the breathless, ecstatic blatherings of the media about his 'impeccable research'. Sadly, I think there will still be plenty fools out there who will believe his nonsense because they want to.

I am quite confused about the statements I am reading here. You all do realize this novel is fiction, correct? How extensive of research does one really need to write fiction? In my opinion the only research necessary when writing fiction is to gather details to make the fiction seem realistic enough to be believable, which ultimately is how the author makes the story more immersive and enjoyable for the reader.

It's been quite some time since I've read DVC, but I seem to remember only a single page that claimed to be factual, the contents of which could have been googled in less than 5 minutes. Can someone please reference where Dan Brown has ever claimed that the rest of this novel is anything other than fiction?

Thank you Icthis. I thought I was going to have to find my copy of the book and verify that it was in fact fiction.

Definition of the word novel: "A fictional prose narrative of considerable length, typically having a plot that is unfolded by the actions, speech, and thoughts of the characters."

I find it interesting that in order to sell the items available on this website, the website authors need to make as much noise as possible regarding the "hoax".
