Dan Brown's Sequels to The Da Vinci Code "Not a Cheap Formula"


davincicode
EXETER, New Hampshire — Dan Brown is releasing a series of books relating the adventures of his The Da Vinci Code hero, Robert Langdon, a Harvard professor of iconography and religious art, and breaker of codes.

Critics have said that the new books just repeat the formula of The Da Vinci Code: take a famous historical figure, invent a conspiracy theory, throw in sex and violence, and use mathematics to save the day. Brown has denied this.

We let you judge for yourselves:

The Pythagoras Puzzle - While Langdon is trying to remember who Pythagoras was, a beautiful stranger pounces on him and ravishes him. He is then tortured by Opus Dei and driven at high speed to the Acropolis, where he is spread-eagled in the nude at midnight. However, his facility for numbers enables him to weave together material to make a suit, and he is saved from embarrassment when the tourists arrive in the morning.

The Michelangelo Maze "“ While Langdon is lieing flat on his back staring at the frescoed ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, a beautiful stranger pounces on him and ravishes him. He is then tortured by Opus Dei, driven at high speed to Monte Carlo, strapped to a roulette wheel, and left to die. However, his facility for numbers enables him to guess where the ball will land next, and he is saved.

The Madame Curie Codex "“ While Langdon is investigating the poisoning of a former Russian spy in London with radioactive isotopes, a beautiful stranger pounces on him and ravishes him, after which he is tortured by Opus Dei, driven at high speed to Chernobyl, and thrown into an abandoned nuclear reactor. However, his facility for numbers enables him to split the atom and nuke the French, after which he is invited to spend the weekend at Crawford.
