random aside

For those who have read The Da Vinci Code (and no spoiler for those who haven't) - I caught the author in an error. His Hebrew transliteration is for shit. He turned an H into a Vav. What the fuck?

True, and good points.

Except for your last. Do you write? Do you do so just to make money? I write, but not to make money. And if I ever do make money off of it (which isn't impossible, I'm actually good at some of what I do) it won't be just to make money.

I think accusing someone you don't know of having the purpose of their book being just to make money is very offensive.

Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you do know the author.

It is entirely possible that he wrote this book because he felt driven, because he felt a great need to write it.

If that was the only reason, I doubt he'd have published it. A good writer knows when they do a bad job.
