The Da Vinci Code Read-Alikes
May 3 -It seems that the entire publishing industry is on the look out for the next The Da Vinci Code. I can't tell you how many blurbs for well-researched historical novels, especially those that might have a secret society or about the church, that touts that it reads like The Da Vinci Code. Is this what us, the dedicated reader is looking for? And what if the book is a good read but not at all like The Da Vinci Code? Does the publisher then do a disservice?
Well, we at MostlyFiction.com can only sit back and take the marketing push for so long before we get curious and agree to read the books, for better or for worse. And our reviewer Jana L. Perskie is leading the way in the search.
Check these reviews before picking up your interim book to fill in the time while we wait for the real sequel to come out next year. Man, would you want to be in Dan Brown's shoes?! He's the only one that must pull off a reall The Da Vinci Code read-alike!
