"The books are expressly written to draw in people who read for information and are less involved in narrative. They are research-heavy and interaction-light, and three at least use the same plot. Brown’s genius is to communicate basic narratives larded with hardcore information to readers whose interests do not lie in imagining things."

They forgot to put quotation marks around "information" and "research."

Makes you wonder at what point postmodernism becomes deliberate deceit. Is it fanciful narrative as a platform for hardcore historical "information," or made-up facts used to drive a fictional narrative? Well, it depends who's asking and the likelihood of another fisking.

I do like the Telegraph's choice of the word "larded" though. The whole thing is pretty greasy.
