Uma leads the group in listing each of our 5 desert island reads – books that we’d like to take with us when we get stranded in a desert island.  Some of us took some liberties on the topic and decided to list books they haven’t read that they’d like to bring, for whatever practical reasons.

Bookbabble Episode 35: Deconstructing The Dan Brown Code

May 27, 2009 by

Bookbabble Episode 35: Deconstructing the Dan Brown Code
Recorded 24 May 2009
Babblers: Bjorn, Gem, Renee, Donny with guest Lone Christensen

Synopsis:

The babblers are once again graced by yet another guest, and this time, Lone Christensen from Copenhagen joins the madness!  In this episode, the babblers talk about Dan Brown – if you ever was uncertain where we stood with him, well, let’s just say this episode clears things up.  In conjunction with the release of the new Angels & Demons movie, the babblers say why Dan Brown is such a polarizing figure, why he generates so much attention, what he’s good at and what he isn’t.  The the books (book?) he used as research, the trial, the works.  Also, Bookbabble-approved Dan Brown alternatives.  Plus, Irene postulates that with enough alcohol, anyone can get through a bad book, and Lone singles out a couple of people you’d want to pay attention to in the movie.

 

Show Length: 86:24 mins

 

Note: The babblers make clear of their love and affection for Mr Brown in language that perhaps younger audiences won’t really appreciate.
