    I was just reading the latest book by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, The Book of the Dead, when I came across this paragraph:

    I've always loved their books, now I have one more thing to like about them!!

    Ugh. That is such horribly clichéd writing. It sounds like the author's fishing for a free car from Mercedes or a free computer from Apple.

    I thought this thread was going to be about a new Bruce Campbell movie.

    I thought it was about the Tibetan book of dead.

    And the writing is horrible.

    *shrug* To each his own, I guess. I love their books, they're all very entertaining. I guess the writing isn't the best in the world, but hey look at Dan Brown... he writes horribly and sells millions. (And his first three books are pretty entertaining as well.)

    Well, I don't read Dan Brown, either.

    Cliche indeed.

    Nice to see even the invented are happy with their Macs, though.
