Adrasteius: Really?  Really.

(no subject)

The weird thing is, we actually own DaVinci Code as well as Angels and Demons, but I haven't been able to get through either. Sophomoric writing is one thing, but bland sophomoric writing is more than I can handle. I'm pretty sure they're in our house on Dad's account--he was also reading the Left Behind series, which I think is a bit like DaVinci code except x100 more horrible in its sycophantic pandering to people who are smug about their place in the afterlife. I'm of the mind that DaVinci panders as well, except it's to the people who are smug about the stupidity of those who are certain about their place in the afterlife.

Dad read these books with the same sort of delighted and horrified irony with which I read GODDESS OF THE NIGHT, which leads me to believe that I inherited my tendency to enjoy hating things from him.

(it is so weird to talk about him in past tense.)
