The time has finally arrived. The official launch of The Chaos Factory website. And to kick things off, we have a special event I mentioned a couple of months ago.
The Great Dan Brown Experiment will take place this coming Saturday, December 19th. Over the course of 24 hours (I hope) I will be reading The Lost Symbol, and live blogging about the experience. For those of you in the Western Hemisphere, the fun begins your Friday night. Please join me in order to provide the moral support I undoubtedly will need to devote an entire 24 hours to Dan Brown.
A little background. I read The Da Vinci Code a couple years ago, wondering what all the fuss was about. (And if you are unsure what I mean by fuss, as I mentioned earlier, The Da Vinci Code is already the 8th best selling novel of ALL TIME!) I found it annoyingly compelling, because even though I disliked everything about it, I finished it in 2 or 3 days. It was like I was riding my bike past a truck carrying a shipment of scissors that had crashed into a mental hospital. I could not look away.
So I have decided to relive the experience with The Lost Symbol. Will it be better than the Da Vinci code? Did Dan Brown take the tens of millions of dollars he has earned in royalties to enroll in a basic writing course? Will I live through the weekend or will I choke on my own bile? Will there be a beautiful, young love interest for Robert Langdon who cannot help but fall for his scholarly charms? All these questions will be answered this Saturday.
Remember, all of this takes place right here at entropy2.com.
