I’m about to start reading The Da Vinci Code. It’s not the first book I’ve read where the publicity surrounding it piqued my curiosity (The Satanic Verses was the first, I think), but I’m wondering if it’s worth the hype. So the question is a two-parter:
Have you ever bought/read a book purely because of the hype? Was it worth it?
PS: Play nice. No spoilers, please.
